It is not fitting, when one is in God's service, to have a gloomy face or a chilling look.
Francis of Assisi
Men lose all the material things they leave behind them in this world, but they carry with them the reward of their charity and the alms they give. For these, they will receive from the Lord the reward and recompense they deserve.
While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it even more fully in your heart.
Above all the grace and the gifts that Christ gives to his beloved is that of overcoming self.
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.
Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.
For it is in giving that we receive.
Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
