The secret of happiness is to live moment by moment and to thank God for all that he, in his goodness, sends to us day after day.
-St. Gianna Beretta Molla

“Cheerfulness strengthens the heart and makes us persevere in a good life. Therefore the servant of God ought always to be in good spirits.”

— St. Philip Neri

“True strength is not found in being stubborn or arrogant. It is found in allowing the Holy Spirit to dwell in one’s heart so that one might be open to the Spirit’s promptings. It is that Spirit Who frees us from our selfishness, for the Spirit reminds us that God is supposed to be the center of who we are and what we do.”

— Rev. Jude Winkler, OFM
