"In the life of the saints, we find many of them who didn't want to leave anything of themselves behind after their death, not the smallest souvenir, not the least bit of writing." ~ St. Therese of the Child Jesus
If you embrace all things in life as coming from the hands of God, and even embrace death to fulfill His holy will, assuredly you will die a saint. ~St. Alphonsus Liguori
Those from whom I receive the greatest consolations and encouragement are those whom I know to be dwelling in Paradise. ~St. Teresa of Avila
The saints were so completely dead to themselves that they cared very little whether others agreed with them or not. ~St. John Vianney
"I have always noticed that when I compared to myself to the saints, there is between them and me the same difference that exists between a mountain whose summit is lost in the clouds and the obscure grain of sand trampled underfoot by passers-by. Instead of becoming discouraged, I said to myself: God cannot inspire unrealizable desires....I must bear with myself such as I am with all my imperfections...." ~St. Therese of the Child Jesus
~Is your cross too heavy? Accept it and bear it with a grateful heart and for the love of Jesus, and always do His will...Surely then, you will be a saint...or at least saintly.~
"God is more pleased by one work, however small, done secretly and without the desire that it be known, than a thousand works done with the desire that others know of them." ~St. John of the Cross
