“We become holy through love, and the Eucharist is about love. Because of Jesus’s love for us, he gave himself as an offering. In doing so, he freed us from the bonds of sin and bestowed on us the gift of freedom. Love and freedom are closely related. The Eucharist is a thanksgiving celebration for Jesus’s love, poured out to gain freedom for all humankind.”

—from the book Your [Imperfect] Holy Family

“God loves those who thank Him even in suffering.”

— St. Arnold Janssen

“The soul that does not attach itself solely to the will of God will find neither satisfaction nor sanctification in any other means however excellent by which it may attempt to gain them. If that which God Himself chooses for you does not content you, from whom do you expect to obtain what you desire? . . . No soul can be really nourished, fortified, purified, enriched, and sanctified except in fulfilling the duties of the present moment.”

— Fr. Jean-Pierre de Caussade
