“O my dear daughters, how consoling is this mystery of the Eucharist! If we knew how to appreciate it, it would suffice to fortify and sustain us; is there anything sweeter than to have a friend to whom we may at any hour confide our difficulties and our pains?”
“[God] has protected us with so much love until the present day that I should consider it a crime to doubt [God's] mercy now.”
“The good God who has protected us so many times can still protect us.”
“Unless nourished, faith, like love, becomes extinguished.”
