We were born to love, we live to love, and we will die to love still more.
-St. Joseph Cafasso
If to remember in the time of suffering on the battlefield that God has withdrawn us from the world can be such sweet delight, what will it be on high, when, in everlasting glory and eternal rest, we realize what a grace it was to be picked out to dwell in His home on earth in the very outer court of Heaven.
-St. Therese of Lisieux
