Thought for the day: CONFIDENCE IN GOD
"We can never have too much confidence in the good God Who is so powerful and so merciful. We obtain from Him as much as we hope for. What offends Jesus, what wounds His Sacred Heart, is lack of confidence in Him. If you are nothing, do you forget that Jesus is everything? You have only to lose your nothingness in His Infinity and think only of loving Him."
Thought for the day: SIN
"The only grace I ask, O Jesus, is never to offend Thee."
Thought for the day: THE USE OF GOD’S GIFTS
How much benefit have I received from the beauties of nature, bestowed in such abundance. How they raise me to Him Who placed such wonders in this land of exile which is only to last a day.
Thought for the day: ABANDONMENT TO GOD
"I fear only one thing—to keep my own will; take it, my God, for I choose all that Thou choosest."
Thought for the day: PATIENCE IN SUFFERINGS
I do not fear trials sent by Jesus, for even in the most bitter suffering we can see that it is His loving hand which causes it. When we are expecting nothing but suffering, we are quite surprised at the least joy; but then suffering itself becomes the greatest of joys when we seek it as a precious treasure.
Thought for the day: ZEAL FOR SOULS
Let us work together for the salvation of souls. We have only the day of this life to save souls and to give them to the Lord as proofs of our love.
Thought for the day: LOVE OF GOD
I will love God alone and will not have the misfortune of attaching myself to creatures, now that my heart perceives what He has in store for those who love Him. What attracts me to the Kingdom of Heaven is the call of our Lord, the hope of loving Him as I have so desired and the thought that I shall be able to make Him loved by a great number of souls who will bless Him forever.
Thought for the day: DEATH
It says in the catechism that death is nothing but the separation of the soul and body. Well, I have no fear of a separation which will unite me forever with the good God. I am happy to die because I shall be able to help souls who are dear to me, far more than I can here below.
Life is not sad; it is very joyous. If you say, “This exile is sad,” I understand you. We are wrong to give the name “life” to something which will end; it is only to the things of Heaven that we should apply this beautiful name.
Thought for the day: THE MISSION OF THE LITTLE FLOWER
I do not intend to remain inactive in Heaven. I want to work for the Church and for souls. I have asked this of God and I am certain that He will grant my request. I will spend my Heaven doing good upon earth. This is not impossible, since the Angels, though always enjoying the Beatific Vision, watch over us. No, I cannot be at rest until the end of the world.
