Jon 3:10

Thus, when God saw them amending their lives in good earnest, he spared them, in his mercy, their threatened punishment.

In Conversation with God:

Every contrite Confession is… a rediscovery of one’s true identity, which has been upset and disturbed by sin, a liberation in the very depth of one’s self and thus a regaining of lost joy, the joy of being saved, which the majority of people in our time are no longer capable of experiencing…

We need to pour out before him all the sorrow we experience as we become aware of our weaknesses, our errors, our imperfections and sins…

The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit; a humble and contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise. ‘Cor contritum et humilitatum, Deus, non despicies.’ …

The moments of a sincere Confession may well be amongst the sweetest, the most comforting and the most decisive moments in life.

CCC #163

Faith makes us taste in advance the light of the beatific vision, the goal of our journey here below. Then we shall see God “face to face”, “as he is”. So faith is already the beginning of eternal life: When we contemplate the blessings of faith even now, as if gazing at a reflection in a mirror, it is as if we already possessed the wonderful things which our faith assures us we shall one day enjoy.

Totus Tuus:

Jesus desires to love so much – to love as much as possible – that he dies in a cry of thirst…


… oceans will part, nations come at the whisper of Your call… in my life Your will be done…
