Sg 2:10 – 11

I can hear my true love calling to me: Rise up, rise up quickly, dear heart, so gentle, so beautiful, rise up and come with me. Winter is over now, the rain has passed by.

In Conversation with God:

There is no better way of preparing for Christmas, which is now so close, than by keeping Mary company…

Convince yourself of this truth: your success – this time, in this matter – was to fail. Give thanks to our Lord… and try again! You haven’t failed; you have gained experience. On you go! …

No… voice… will have any appeal for us, if it does not bring us back to the stable at Bethlehem – there to humble our pride, and enlarge our charity, and deepen our sense of reverence with the sight of a dazzling purity…

Our Lady puts all she has at God’s disposal. In an instant, all her personal plans – and no doubt she had many – were discarded so that she could do everything God wanted her to. She made no excuses, had no reservations…

… love is in its essence to give oneself to others. Far from being a conscious decision of the will to draw close to other people…

The Kingdom of Heaven is beyond price, and yet it costs what you have to give … It cost Peter and Andrew the price of a boat and some nets. It cost the widow two little coins… It cost them everything they had as it will do in our case too.


… truly, were they such as would develope in little ones; but I scorned to be a little one, and, swollen with pride, I looked upon myself as a great one.


… bring all the thirsty, all who seek peace, bring those with nothing to offer, strengthen the feeble, say to the frightened heart, “fear not; here is your God…”
