If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.
Francis of Assisi
It is not fitting, when one is in God's service, to have a gloomy face or a chilling look.
Praised be You, my Lord, through our Sister, Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us, producing varied fruits with coloured flowers and herbs.
Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.
Above all the grace and the gifts that Christ gives to his beloved is that of overcoming self.
For it is in giving that we receive.
It is no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching.
A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows.
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
