A timely quote!

'It seems to me that the happiness of a soul consists entirely in conforming to the most adorable Will of God; for in so doing the heart finds peace and the spirit joy and repose, since he "who is joined to the Lord in one spirit" with Him. (1 Cor. 6:17).'

'The only means for detaching ourselves from creatures is to acquire a great love for God. If the love of God does not go so far as to obtain the mastery over our own will, we shall never attain to being saints. The means for acquiring this ruling love is devout prayer.'

We must never lose sight of the fact that we are either saints or outcasts, that we must love for heaven or hell. There is no middle path in this.

'The happiness of man on earth, my children, is to be very good; those who are very good bless the good God, they love Him, they glorify Him, and do all their works with joy and love, because they know that we are in this world for no other end than to serve and love the good God.'

'Without love the soul of man cannot exist. Her affections must be fixed on God or on creatures: if she love not creatures, she will certainly love God. Hence, the Holy Ghost exhorts us to guard our hearts with the utmost vigilance against all affections which have not God for their object: With all watchfulness keep thy heart, because life issueth out from it. While the heart loves God, the soul shall have life; but if the heart transfer its affections to creatures, spiritual death will be the inevitable consequence. In order, then, to become a saint, the spouse of the Lamb must expel from her soul what soever has not God for its end and object.

When any one demanded admission into the Society of the Fathers of the Desert, they answered him by the following question: "Do you bring a vacant heart, that it may be filled by the Holy Ghost?" Justly did they require a soul detached from earthly goods; for a heart in which the world dwells cannot be replenished with the love of God. Whoever brings to the fountain a-vessel replete with sand, will labor in vain to fill it with water unless it be first emptied of its contents.'

This quote is quite sobering, but also holds a very beautiful truth well worth striving for.

Come, Holy Spirit, as you descended upon Mary, that the word might become flesh, work in us through grace as you worked in her through nature and grace.
St. Mary Magdalene de Pazzi

O' Mother of Christ, Star of the Sea,
pray for the sinner, pray for me.

Deep night hath come down on us, Mother, deep night,
and we need more than ever the guide of thy light;
For darker the night is, the brighter should be
thy beautiful shining, Sweet Star of the Sea.
