The Encounter That Changes Our Lives

When a person truly knows Jesus Christ and believes in him,
 that person experiences his presence in life as well as the power of his Resurrection
and cannot but communicate this experience.
And if this person meets with misunderstanding or adversity,
 he behaves like Jesus in his Passion:
he answers with love and with the power of the truth.
 
Pope Francis

Go to the cemetery and see what you love, when you love your body.
St. John Vianney

That's a good one haji  Grin
But, we are supposed to love our body and treat it with respect as it is the Temple of the Lord, are we not?
Yes it's true we're called to respect our bodies as temples of the Lord, but I believe the Saint was referring to folks who are obsessed with looking good, eating good, smelling good, dressing good etc. while polluting their bodies with sin while forgetting the poor and needy.

'The coldness you feel in prayer comes from your too great desire for sensible fervor. You must love God alone with all your heart and be ready to be satisfied with his Cross as the only sign of his love.'

Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things pass away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things.
He who has God
Finds he lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.

Let us desire nothing else,
let us wish for nothing else,
let nothing else please us and cause us delight
except our creator and redeemer and Savior,
the one true God, who is the fullness of good,
the true and supreme good.
Let nothing hinder us,
nothing separate us or nothing come between us.
St. Francis of Assisi

"Do not let anything afflict you, and do not be afraid of any illness, or accident, or pain.
 Am I not here who am your Mother?
Are you not under my shadow and protection?
 Do you need anything else?"

Our Lady of Guadalupe
To Juan Diego

You're making me laugh remembering something St. Juan said to Our Lady.

I heard a sermon on the subject once.

Yes, you posted a link to that sermon at the "Saint of the day and Feast days"
 thread at CAF.
That priest is a really good preacher, I enjoyed the sermon.

'The trouble into which your dissipation and distractions throw you, your sense of separation from God and all your resistance to what is good would cease if you received these painful states humbly; they are neither sins nor spiritual evils, but merely the loving chastisement of your Father, who uses this way of purifying you from all the saints of your former life. All that saddens you and makes you think you are lost will, if borne with patience, humility, and conformity to God's will, be changed into a treasure which will enrich you more in one day than would a whole year of consolations and ecstacies.'
