A divine shield and veil!

Which no devil can imitate!

There's deep meaning to this!  Cheesy

'Those persons that are truly virtuous prefer to disfigure themselves rather than be the object of a bad desire.

The venerable Sister Catharine of Jesus, before becoming a religious of St. Teresa, washed herself with dirty water, and then exposed herself to the sun so as to spoil her complexion.'

I think I've known people like this. People who do so much good for others  and they don't seem to realize the depth and worth of the good works that they do, and they do it for all the right reasons, without realizing how rare they are. Do you think?

Blessed are the saints, O God and king,
who have traveled over the tempestuous sea of this mortal life,
and have made the harbor of peace and felicity.
Watch over us who are still in our dangerous voyage:
And remember such as to be exposed to the rough storms of trouble and temptations.
Frail is our vessel, and the ocean is wide;
but as in Thy mercy thou hast set our course,
so steer the vessel of our life toward the everlasting shore of peace,
and bring us at length to the quiet haven of our hearts desire,
where Thou, our God, are blessed, and livest and reignest forever and ever.
St. Augustine

This ends giving me such a peaceful feeling! His writing here is poetic while still clearly stating his idea.

It is our part to seek, His to grant what we ask; ours to make a beginning, His to bring to completion; ours to offer what we can, His to finish what we cannot.

'As the wax which we place near the fire assumes any form we wish to give it, so the loving soul ought to obey as soon as her Beloved has spoken.'

'These are those who would not think of failing to hear Holy Mass every day, and, at the same time, will not deprive themselves of the satisfaction it affords them to attend the theatres, although the Church has always regarded these as pernicious, considering the ordinary sort of entertainment therein presented.

Again there are those who sometimes read books of piety, and afterwards pass the night in reading novels filled with the venom of bitterness of falsehood and immorality.

This caused Gerson, one of the most famous lights of the University of Paris, to say, of a novel writer, that if he knew him to have died without doing penance for his sin, he (Gerson) would think no more of praying to God for that man's soul, than he would think of praying for Judas.'

St. Jean Eudes

'If it be the duty of a Christian to pray to God before meals, he is not less bound to thank him after having made use of the gifts which came from his bountiful hand. It is, therefore, necessary to make, after every meal, a short but fervent act of thanksgiving.'

Our enemy the devil, who fights with us, in order to vanquish us, seeks to disunite us in our houses, and to breed quarrels, contests, and rivalries, because, while we are fighting with each other, he comes and conquers us, and makes us more securely his own.

'The virtues generate good thoughts; the commandments lead us to the virtues; the practice of the virtues depends on our own will and resolution.'
