I told the little girl all that Mary inspired me to say
He bore everything with patience and love
I simply do not praise poverty, but suffering with patience
"When I am up above, will you let me help you, scold you even, if I see you are not giving everything to the Master? because I love you!"
“I do not fear my weakness; that’s what gives me confidence. For the Strong One is within me and His power is almighty.”
“It is this intimacy with Him “within” that has been the beautiful sun illuminating my life, making it already an anticipated Heaven; it is what sustains me today in my suffering.”
The phrase "God alone" appears twice in this translation of the famous poem by St. Teresa of Avila on the "Efficacy of Patience"
