If I fail in speech,
I pray You will teach
me kind words to speak.
May I see clearly with the eye of my beating heart. May I have the wisdom to listen with special care. May my heart and mind be in tune to…
“What a wonderful knowing of one’s self! What a wonderful acceptance of one’s self. What bravery to follow the call to be who one is – in truth and freedom.”
“Humble yourself - that is very good - but do not yield to discouragement.”
“It will be good to die like Sister did, but for that we have to live as she did. She did not think even once that she had to be judged ... she ran toward Jesus with the greatest love but without a particle of fear.”
“What have we to do in order to be saints? Nothing extraordinary; nothing more than what we do every day. Only do it for [God's] love...”
“Do not meddle with what does not concern you.”
“I have debts at Paris and I do not know how to pay them. However, I am not too much discouraged. I see in all this the will of God, and I submit to it.”
“Let not a cross look or a word vex you; no, nothing in the world is worth losing our peace for...”
“I turned to my God and felt my confidence reanimated.”
“This happiness will certainly not be without clouds.”
“Do not press matters; be patient, be trustful.”
