The Holy Spirit longs to find the gates to our heart, so that He may enter in and dwell there, and sanctify it; and He goes round about to all the gates to see where He may enter.

If only we keep our souls in a state of grace, through perfect contrition, confession, and acts of love..

And then keep our intentions pure.. by repeatedly making the true intention of our every action be for the love of God, for charity, and free of sin.. then we can truly do good..


'Every vice leads in the end to forbidden pleasure; and every virtue to spiritual blessing. Each arouses what is akin to it.'

"A man who governs his passions is master of the world.
We must either command them, or be enslaved by them.
 It is better to be a hammer than an anvil"

In prayer one must hold fast and never let go.....If it seems that no one is listening to you, then cry out even louder. If you are driven out of one door, go back in by the other.

"For I had many friends who helped me to fall;
but, when it came to rising again,
 I found myself so completely alone that I marvel now that I did not remain where I was,
 and I praise the mercy of God, Who alone gave me His hand.
 May He be blessed for ever. Amen."

Yes it is a great consolation, the Lord holding our hand.

Where shall I go from your Spirit?
Or where shall I flee from your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, you are there!
If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
If I take the wings of the morning
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
even there your hand shall lead me,
and your right hand shall hold me.
Psalm 139:7-10
