Quote of the day, 24 February: Blessed Pepa

My ideal isn’t to lengthen my life but to sanctify my soul.

Souls, souls for God! I don’t want them to be condemned. Help me to obtain this!

Be humble and recollected, bear the presence of God and keep silent.

Ask God often for humility of heart.

Blessed Josefa Naval Girbés
