“We discover that to be pure of heart does not make us lonely and alone, but makes us one with everything God has made—ultimately, one with God himself. That is being at peace: being one with God and embracing his whole world.”

-from The Gospels According to Saint Francis

“Be faithful to the time spent in prayer and make sure that at least half of your prayer is spent in silence. This will bring you closer to Jesus. If you deepen your prayer life you will grow in holiness and obtain many graces for the souls entrusted to your care. Deepen your love for one another by praying for each other and by sharing thoughts and graces you have received in prayer and reading.”


— Bl. Mother Teresa of Calcutta
