I have faith in God. It might not always be easy for me to understand or accept God’s purpose in a crisis, but faith in his presence and trust in his care throughout makes those trying times bountifully blessed and allows me to find spiritual calm when all else is in turmoil.

“The limitless loving devotion to God, and the gift God makes of Himself to you, are the highest elevation of which the heart is capable; it is the highest degree of prayer.”

— St. Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein)

“We are all sinners. We have all turned away from the Lord, but the Lord is always ready to take us back. When we sin we hurt ourselves, we break our own hearts. The Father sends His Holy Spirit into our hearts to bring us forgiveness and to heal whatever damage we have done to ourselves.”

— Rev. Jude Winkler
