Mary Vitamin:

… our sorrows will be fed even by our joys. God sends us joys before sorrows, to prepare our hearts; but the joys themselves contain prophecies of the coming sorrows.

In Conversation with God:

Sins leave a mark on the soul that must be expunged through sorrow and a great deal of love.

…  penance is ‘gaudium, etsi laboriosum,’ joy, in spite of its hardship…


… i don’t want to wait for our lives to be over, i want to know right now, what will it be, and i don’t want to wait for our lives to be over, will it be yes, or will it be sorry…
… i can see it in your eyes, you’re hurting, but pain is part of learning who you are… when all your plans are made out lying on the floor, and all your dreams are turning into nothing more, when all your hope has left you, know you’re not alone, just hold on, hold on…
… meet me once again, down off lake michigan, where we could feel the storm blowing down with the wind, and don’t apologize for all the tears you’ve cried; you’ve been way too strong now for all your life…
… i don’t want to wait until tomorrow to tell you how i’d feel the rest of my life, you don’t want a waste another minute when you realize, walking on the dark side of the evening, maybe it was you that opened my eyes, burning like a fire on the water, the city of black and white, won’t you just stay…
