Anyone who truly loves God travels securely.


There are more tears shed over answered prayers than over unanswered prayers.


Pain is never permanent.


I know the power obedience has of making things easy which seem impossible.


The devil put before me that I could not endure the trials of the religious life, because of my delicate nurture. I defended myself against him by alleging the trials which Christ endured, and that it was not much for me to suffer something for His sake; besides, He would help me to bear it.


I had a father and mother, who were devout and feared God. Our Lord also helped me with His grace. All this would have been enough to make me good, if I had not been so wicked.


Do you think it is only a little thing to possess a house from which lovely things can be seen?


To reach something good it is very useful to have gone astray, and thus acquire experience.


Our souls may lose their peace and even disturb other people's, if we are always criticizing trivial actions - which often are not real defects at all, but we construe them wrongly through our ignorance of their motives.


The feeling remains that God is on the journey, too.


Mental prayer in my opinion is nothing else than an intimate sharing between friends; it means taking time frequently to be alone with Him who we know loves us. The important thing is not to think much but to love much and so do that which best stirs you to love. Love is not great delight but desire to please God in everything.


Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.


More tears are shed over answered prayers than unanswered ones.


Prayer is an act of love; words are not needed. Even if sickness distracts from thoughts, all that is needed is the will to love.


A beginner must look on himself as one setting out to make a garden for his Lord's pleasure, on most unfruitful soil which abounds in weeds. His Majesty roots up the weeds and will put in good plants instead. Let us reckon that this is already done when the soul decides to practice prayer and has begun to do so.


To have courage for whatever comes in life - everything lies in that.


The tree that is beside the running water is fresher and gives more fruit.


I do not fear Satan half so much as I fear those who fear him.


If Christ Jesus dwells in a man as his friend and noble leader, that man can endure all things, for Christ helps and strengthens us and never abandons us. He is a true friend.


When I took the habit, the Lord immediately showed me how He favours those who do violence to themselves in order to serve Him. No one saw what I endured... At the moment of my entrance into this new state I felt a joy so great that it has never failed me even to this day; and God converted the dryness of my soul into a very great tenderness.
