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 the needs as well as the joys around me. May I be free from earthly demands to feel and touch the truth of God’s unconditional…
Her voice echoes from of old, beckoning me to be still.
At times when the way ahead,
or even the next step,
assure me that You know what is to come;
that You envision
a plan to prosper me and not to harm me,
to give me a future full of hope.
“We must pray: it is our food without which nourishment we perish.”
“If ... you are quite determined to belong entirely to God, to work with all your strength ... I say to you with assurance, Come.”
“Come then, dear daughters, to enjoy yourselves a little in the Lord and prepare for what the future has in store for you.”
“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.”
“...if you protect us, the work we have undertaken for the glory of God will succeed, will prosper. Of this I feel almost certain.”
“Let us always have in hand our lamps burning, that we may not be surprised.”
“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.”
“In the midst of all our storms, however, we have the consolation of seeing the religious spirit become solid ... and that is not a little thing.”
