St. Therese of Lisieux
“When I die, I will send down a shower of roses from the heavens, I will spend my heaven by doing good on earth.” – St. Therese of Lisieux
St. John Paul II.
The human being is single, unique, and unrepeatable, someone thought of and chosen from eternity, someone called and identified by name
St. John of The Cross
“Faith is like the feet wherewith the soul journeys to God, and love is the guide that directs it” St. John of The Cross.
St.Teresa of Avila
“Let nothing perturb you, nothing frighten you. All things pass. God does not change. Patience achieves everything” – St. Teresa of Avila.
C. S. Lewis
“To have Faith in Christ means, of course, trying to do all that He says. There would be no sense in saying you trusted a person if you would not take his advice. Thus if you have really handed yourself over to Him, it must follow that you are trying to obey Him. But trying in a new way, a less worried way. Not doing these things in order to be saved, but because He has begun to save you already. Not hoping to get to Heaven as a reward for your actions, but inevitably wanting to act in a certain way because a first faint gleam of Heaven is already inside you.” C.S. Lewis – Mere Christianity.
“Pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our consciences, but shouts in our pains. It is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.”― C.S. Lewis
“The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us.”― C.S. Lewis
“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”― C.S. Lewis
“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”― C.S. Lewis
“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of – throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.”― C.S. Lewis – Mere Christianity
