'He who loves Me, says the Lord, will keep My commandments (cf. John 14:15, 23); and "this is My commandment, that you love one another" (John 15:12). Thus he who does not love his neighbor fails to keep the commandment, and so cannot love the Lord.'

'I am always happy and content in God. I accept all things, pleasant or unpleasant, gratefully from our dear heavenly Father. He knows what is best for us and so I am always happy in God. I try to love Him very much. There is only one thing that grieves me, and that is that I love Him so little. If I could become a seraph of love I would call on all creatures to help me love my God. I must close now. I could go on and on. Love has no limits. I would have to write much more but I don't have the time. The bell is ringing to call me once more to praise God.'

'When you are wronged and your heart and feelings are hardened, do not be distressed, for this has happened providentially; but be glad and reject the thoughts that arise within you, knowing that if they are destroyed at the stage when they are only provocations, their evil consequences will be cut off, whereas if the thoughts persist the evil may be expected to develop.'

              St. Thomas Aquinas expressed: The Eucharist is the point where God and the soul meet;     
              God with all his graces, the soul with all its needs.         
     
              I like this statement. The Lord created man and man's soul. However, man and his     
              soul become in need of assistance. The Eucharist is a gift from God. God the Giver         
              gives the Eucharist to man.

Eucharistic Adoration is a priceless means of sanctification!

'In fact, we should be convinced that without the help of God we have not the strength to resist the violent movements of bad passions and the vehement suggestions of the enemy who comes to assail us, even though we should have taken a thousand good resolutions and made to God a thousand promises; if we then do not recommend ourselves to God, we shall certainly be conquered. We must add that the Council of Trent condemns him who should say that man in the state of grace can persevere in it without the special help of God: "If any one saith that the justified either is able to persevere, without the special help of God, in the justice received; or that, with that help, he is not able; let him be anathema." Hence, in order to persevere, the ordinary divine help does not suffice; we need extraordinary help, which is not obtained except through prayer.'

'After the suggestion comes the pleasure. When a person is not careful to banish the temptation immediately, but stops to reason with it, the thought instantly begins to delight him, and give him pleasure, and thus draws the person on to give his consent to it. As long as the will withholds the consent, the sin is only venial, and not mortal. But if the soul does not then turn to God, and make an effort to resist the pleasure, it will easily go on to give its consent. "Unless," says St. Anselm, "a person repel the pleasure, it passes into consent, and kills the soul."'

'We believe that no one ever attains salvation but through the assistance of Divine grace; and that no one ever deserves the aid of Divine grace unless he asks and prays for it.'

                   Like obedient children, do not act in compliance with the desires of your former ignorance,     
                    but, as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in every aspect of your conduct,

                  From his fullness we have all received, grace in place of grace,           
                  because while the law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

'Be not without fear about sins forgiven.

Why does the Holy Ghost admonish us to be afraid of sin which has been already pardoned?

Because after the guilt is remitted the temporal penalties of sin still remain; and among them we must reckon the withdrawal of God's graces. Hence the saints never ceased to weep for their faults, though only venial, and even after they had been forgiven; for they always trembled lest their past transgressions should be punished by the subtraction of the graces necessary to obtain eternal life.'
