Lord Jesus, You only have us,
to stand in for You. Make ours Your healing touch. Make ours the words You’d speak.
Make our outreach to families and loved ones the comfort and hope You’d give.
Let us be Your love.
“Pray, be humble, be charitable, and God's blessing will be with you.”
“[Your charity], it was life a gift from heaven, and is a new proof of the tender watchfulness of that divine Providence, of which we are in truth doubly the children.”
“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...”
“We are not called upon to do all the good that is possible, but only that which we can do.”
“Charity consists in loving sincerely persons whose inclinations are most opposed to ours, in pardoning those who injure us.”
“The spirit of faith consists in doing our actions for God.”
“Everything in us seemed to change except charity, which united us to God.”
“It seems that God wishes to render [God's] gifts still dearer to us by causing them to pass through your hands before reaching us.”
“Souls everywhere are equally dear to our Lord, and we are determined to consecrate our life to them.”
“...a tender charity has constantly existed among us. ... There... is the secret of our strength, the firm foundation of our prosperity, the source of our success.”
“When they are ill, take good care of them.”
