"Keep your eyes fixed on Him who is your guide to the Heavenly country, where He is leading you. What does is matter to you whether Jesus wishes to guide you to Heaven by way of the desert or by the meadow, so long as He is always with you and you arrive at the possession of a blessed eternity?"
~St. Padre Pio

Pray for the Canonization of Blessed William Joseph Chaminade
"The more you know yourself, the less you will trust in your own strength, and if divine light should become bright enough to allow you to penetrate into the double abyss of your nothingness and your miseries, your trust in God will be your only stay. How strong then will you be! God communicates his strength to us in proportion to the interior convictions of our own weaknesses. This conviction is a great grace."
Blessed William Joseph Chaminade
