My mind is not empty, but crammed full,
like a dresser drawer full of old programs
and garments needing patches.
“...purify your hearts more and more in communion with God, and acquire new strength and fervor for the time to come.”
“At each step we can admire the grandeur, the power, the goodness of God.”
“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.”
“On the Feast of All Saints, raise up your heart to God and ask [God] to obtain for you a place among the blessed in heaven. How happy we shall be there!”
“A long time after the sun had disappeared the moon succeeded it, and it knew a more somber clarity; we were still there to admire the Works of Creation and to make the most serious reflections on what we beheld and on our present position.”
“Very great hopes are founded upon this house.”
“The weather was magnificent. It seemed that heaven united with earth to add beauty to the feast. Never had I seen our solitude so charming.”
“Daughters of four different nations [are] assembled here in a little chapel under the protection of the Lord in the heart of the dense woods, having nothing in the world but [God] for support and for protection.”
“I beg you, take today the resolution to become saints. ... Ask of God the graces you need...”
“Oh! The Daughters of Providence must fear nothing as to their future. They must confide themselves entirely to their good Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary.”
