“The last degree of love is when He gave Himself to us to be our Food; because He gave Himself to be united with us in every way.”
— St. Bernardine of Siena
There is a tremendous hero inside each of us, a person who can face a crisis and bring to bear inner strength, vitality, courage, and compassion. As you appreciate and develop the heroic qualities within you that protect you and your loved ones from darkness and allow the Spirit to thrive, you can begin to trust even more firmly that there is no need to panic. There is great reason to have faith, hope, and love.
-from Don’t Panic
“Prayer brings our mind into the brightness of divine light, and exposes our will to the warmth of divine love. Nothing else can so purge our mind from its ignorance, and our will from its depraved affections. It is a blessed fountain which, as it flows, revives our good desires and causes them to bring forth fruit, washes away the stains of infirmity from our soul, and calms the passions of our hearts.”
— St. Francis de Sales, p. 61
Take comfort – Jesus loves you!
