“Let us love God, but with the strength of our arms, in the sweat of our brow.”
— St. Vincent de Paul
“Yes, my heart’s dear one, Jesus, is here with His cross. Since you are one of His favorites, he wants to make you into His likeness; why be afraid that you will not have the strength to carry this cross without a struggle? On the way to Calvary, Jesus did indeed fall three times and you, poor little child, would like to be different from your spouse, would rather not fall a hundred times if necessary to prove your love to Him by getting back up with even more strength than before your fall!”
— St. Therese of Lisieux,
“It is critical to the Christian life to accept the fact that whatever happens in your life is God’s will. It’s half the battle. The other half is learning to embrace suffering and uncomfortable situations as they arise.”
