  • I was thinking that people could post short quotes by Saints here to help us keep our focus, especially now that it's Lent.

    "If ever you have a fit of sadness or trouble, remember that it is because you are still attached to life, or health, or some comfort, or person, or thing that you ought to forget and despise, that you may desire Jesus Christ only." - St. Claude de la Colombiere

  • My husband and I are texting each other this very thing you posted for Lent. Thank you. I will be sending him everything that gets posted here starting with yours.

    "Accustom yourself in all that you do to act and speak gently and quietly, and you will see that in a short time you will completely control that abrupt impulsiveness."

  • St. John of the Cross - Ascent of Mt. Carmel.

    "
    In order to arrive at pleasure in everything
     Desire to have pleasure in nothing.
     In order to arrive at possessing everything,
     Desire to possess nothing.
     In order to arrive at being everything
     Desire to be nothing.
     In order to arrive at knowing everything,
     Desire to know nothing.
     In order to arrive at that wherein thou hast no pleasure,
     Thou must go by a way wherein thou hast no pleasure.
     In order to arrive at that which thou knowest not
     Thou must go by a way thou knowest not.
     In order to arrive at that which thou possest not,
     Thou must go by a way that thou possesst not.
     In order to arrive at that which thou art not,
     Thou must go through that which thou art not.
     When thy mind dwells upon anything,
     Thou art ceasing to cast thyself upon the All.
     For in order to pass from the all to the All,
     Thou hast to deny thyself wholly in all.
     And when thou comest to possess it wholly,
     Thou must possess it without desiring anything.
     For, if thou wilt have anything in having all,
     Thou hast not thy treasure purely in God."

  • Some beautiful quotes just posted.

    'Kiss the hands of God, crucified for you, the hands that have struck you and caused you to suffer. Repeat over and over again to Him His own words to His Father while He was suffering: Not my will but thine be done. In all that Thou wishest of me, today and for always, in heaven and on earth, let Thy will be done, but let it be done on earth as it is done in heaven.'

    St. Claude de la Colombiere
    Sincerely,

    Shin

    Quote
    Do not grieve over the temptations you suffer. When the Lord intends to bestow a particular virtue on us, He often permits us first to be tempted by the opposite vice. Therefore, look upon every temptation as an invitation to grow in a particular virtue and a promise by God that you will be successful, if only you stand fast.

     –Saint Philip Neri (1515-1595)

    Quote
    Do you dread trials? They are indispensably necessary for your admission to heaven. The willing acceptance of them will make them sweet. You do not appreciate the all-powerful operation of grace, and the wondrous changes which it brings to pass in the mind and heart. Yield yourself up to it, and have no uneasiness concerning your own infirmity. You will be weak only so far as you rely on yourself; but if you place your whole confidence in God, you will be able to say with S. Paul : "I can do all things through Christ Which strengtheneth me."

    Sufferings are the richest presents that Divine Majesty bestows on you.

    Quote
    We must not serve God for the sake of His consolations, but because He is worthy of being served. God usually deprives His servants, for a time, of all consolation, that they may learn to serve Him through pure love, and become truly faithful servants. He deprives them of spiritual delights, even on the most solemn occasions, to test their faith and fidelity.
    2 Corinthians 4:3-4

    And if our gospel be also hid, it is hid to them that are lost, In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of unbelievers, that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not shine unto them.

  • Always stay very close to our Lord, present in the tabernacle. Be completely absorbed by devotion to Him there and never let go.

  • Do not look forward to the changes and chances of this life in fear; rather look to them with full hope that, as they arise, God, whose you are, will deliver you out of them. He is your keeper. He has kept you hitherto. Do you but hold fast to his dear hand, and he will lead you safely through all things; and, when you cannot stand, he will bear you in his arms. Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow. Our Father will either shield you from suffering, or he will give you strength to bear it.

    - St. Francis de Sales

  • With her for guide, you shall never go astray; while invoking her, you shall never lose heart; so long as she is in your mind, you are safe from deception; while she holds your hand, you cannot fall; under her protection you have nothing to fear; if she walks before you, you shall not grow weary; if she shows you favor, you shall reach the goal.
    -St. Bernard of Clairvaux

  • "The best penance is to have patience with the sorrows God permits. A very good penance is to dedicate oneself to fulfill the duties of every day with exactitude and to study and work with all our strength."
