01.24.14 ~ Memorial of Saint Francis de Sales, Bishop and Doctor of the Church


In Conversation with God:

It is no use wondering why they were chosen. It is simply that Our Lord called them… You did not choose me, He would say to them later, but I chose you. The choice is always God’s…

He called us with a holy calling, not in virtue of our works but in virtue of his own purpose…

It is not sufficient merely to keep our vocation intact. It is necessary to renew it constantly and reaffirm it: when it seems easy, and at other times when everything seems frustratingly difficult…

‘Ut omnes unum sint, sicut tu, Pater, in me et ego in te…’ That they may all be one; even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee…

humility is indispensable if we are to get along with others. Humility is not only charity. It is also sweetness. Charity is the humility which appears on the outside. Humility is the charity which is on the inside…

If we really seek to understand others, we will be able… to find the good qualities that exist in every person.


… i will hold the Christ-light for you in the nighttime of your fear, i will hold my hand out to you, speak the peace you long to hear…
