I will now be allowed to spend the feast of St. Teresa as her child. Tomorrow morning I enter the Carmel of Cologne-Lindenthal.
Christ prayed throughout His entire life, whereas He spent only three years preaching
“You don’t need to ask that of St. Joseph”
How should we express our commitment to obedience and compassion in the socio-cultural context in which we live?
"When I have a problem, I entrust it to her"
"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.”
“Here is the secret: forget self, give up self, ignore self, look at the Master, look only at Him, accept as coming directly from His love both joy and suffering; this places the soul on such serene heights!”
