Mary Vitamin:

  • ascetic – characterized by or suggesting the practice of severe self-discipline and abstention from all forms of indulgence, typically for religious reasons

In Conversation with God:

We must keep our eyes on his goodness rather than on our own wretchedness, because interior life is a dialogue of love in which God is always the point of reference.

… the spirit of penance consists mainly in the fulfillment of the duty of each moment, however costly it may be. 


… tell her we love her, tell her she’s wanted, and one more thing, God, tell her please come home… the choice is yours alone now, tell me how the story goes…
… i’m so good at forgetting, and i quit every game i play, but forgive me, love, i can’t turn and walk away, not this way…
… ubi caritas, est vera, est vera, Deus ibi est, Deus ibi est…
… lift up your head, because Love is on His way, and He won’t pass you by, you’ve just gotta reach out your hand…
… ’cause You’re all i want, You’re all i need, You’re everything, everything… and how can i stand here with You and not be moved by You…
