Nothing great is ever achieved without much enduring. ~St. Catherine of Siena

O souls who in spiritual matters desire to walk in security andconsolation! If you but knew how much it behooves you to suffer inorder to reach this security and consolation, and how without sufferingyou cannot attain to your desire but rather turn back, in no way wouldyou look for comfort either from God or from creatures. You wouldinstead carry the cross and, placed on it, desire to drink the puregall and vinegar. You would consider it good fortune that, dying tothis world and to yourselves, you would live to God in the delights ofthe spirit, and patiently and faithfully suffering exterior trials,which are small, you would merit that God fix his eyes on you and purgeyou more profoundly through deeper spiritual trials in order to giveyou more interior blessings. -St. John of the Cross

He who attaches himself to the earth remains attached to it. It isbetter to detach oneself little by little instead of all at once. Let us always think of Heaven. -St. Padre Pio

Few souls understand what God would accomplish in them if they were toabandon themselves unreservedly to Him and if they were to allow Hisgrace to mold them accordingly. -St. Ignatius of Loyola

If human beings are ever to discover anything big, they must always be making themselves little; if they magnify their ego to the infinitethey will discover nothing, for there is nothing bigger than theinfinite; but if they reduce their ego to zero, then they will discovereverything big-for there is nothing smaller than the self. -Archbishop Fulton Sheen

People say that they will do; Christ says when we do, then we willknow. The seeds of truth sprout in the soil of obedience. -Archbishop Fulton Sheen
