The cry of my heart is: “Love of my God, my soul searches for You alone."
If only we were all on fire with love for God!
Let us love Jesus to infinity
I simply do not praise poverty, but suffering with patience
Blessed Elia, like St. Therese before her, understood the maternal face of God
The power of a soul surrendered to love is so great
Now what am I doing in this action? Do I love God?
If he so loved God during his life, he did not love him any less at his death
The faith and love of St Teresa and St John of the Cross were nourished in Oviedo and Valladolid
Let us unite to make Him forget everything by the strength of our love
Seek those things which draw you to the ardor of my love
I have a great desire to pay Jesus love for love
One of St. John of the Cross' oft-quoted and misquoted sayings
"If I love God, I love what He is: life, compassion, forgiveness, beauty. If I love God, I fight for respect for human rights, for freedom, and for justice."
what I wanted to do was not a good mortification (what was better, poverty or charity?); that since love was the better, I shouldn’t renounce anything that awakened my love
