Following the Lord, it is our prayer to become instruments of peace in our world so that we might indeed live in such a way that paradise might arrive and your kingdom come, on earth as it is in heaven.

-from The Last Words of Jesus


“This is the great work of man: always to take the blame for his own sins before God and to expect temptation to his last breath.”

— St. Anthony of the Desert


“My daughter, love has brought Me here, and love keeps Me here. My daughter, if you knew what great merit and reward is earned by one act of pure love for Me, you would die of joy. I am saying this that you may constantly unite yourself with Me through love, for this is the goal of the life of your soul. This act is an act of the will. Know that a pure soul is humble. When you lower and empty yourself before My majesty, I then pursue you with My graces and make use of My omnipotence to exalt you.”

— St. Maria Faustina Kowalska
