Quote of the day, 22 May: St. Joachina de Vedruna

I would like to embrace the needs of all the people.

If only we were all enfolded in the love of Jesus so that we could light up the whole world.

Everything through love, nothing by force.

Let us try to rid our hearts of everything that can hinder pure love.

Love, love, and more love, that never says “that’s enough.”
