Faith and love

The goal of all our undertakings should be not so much a task perfectly completed as the accomplishment of the will of God.
St Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face

For one pain endured with joy, we shall love the good God more forever. - St. Therese of Lisieux

When we yield to discouragement it is usually because we give too much thought to the past and to the future. - St. Therese of Lisieux

Courage is not freedom from fear. It’s being afraid and going on anyway -- Anonymous

If you believe what you like in the gospel, and reject what you don’t like, it’s not the gospel you believe, but yourself -- Augustine of Hippo

Know what you are doing, and imitate the mystery you celebrate: Model your life on the mystery of the Lord's cross --- From the rite of Ordination of a Priest

Let nothing disturb you;
Let nothing make you afraid;
All things pass;
But God is unchanging,
Patience is enough for everything.
You who have God lack nothing.
God alone is sufficient -- Teresa of Avila
