February 8 St. Josephine Bakhita

“You asked Me to sustain you and to punish the faults of others in you, and you did not remark that you were really asking for love, light, and knowledge of the truth, since I have already told you that by the increase of love grows grief and pain, wherefore he that grows in love grows in grief.”

-St. Catherine of Siena


Act of Love 

O Lord God, I love you above all things and I love my neighbor for your sake because you are the highest, infinite and perfect good, worthy of all my love. In this love I intend to live and die.
