“If the heart wanders or is distracted, bring it back to the point quite gently and replace it tenderly in its Master’s presence. And even if you did nothing during the whole of your hour but bring your heart back and place it again in Our Lord’s presence, though it went away every time you brought it back, your hour would be very well employed.”

— St. Francis de Sales

Lord, help me not to take myself too seriously but to laugh readily at myself. Even my worst troubles have a ridiculous side.

-from The Joyful Spirit of Padre Pio
