If God did not abandon you in the past, how can he abandon you in the future, when you want to be his from now on, even more so than you did in the past?
– St. Pio of Pietrelcina
Consider sometimes that you are a child of the Catholic Church, and rejoice in the thought; for the children of this mother who desire to live according to her laws, always die happy, and, as the blessed mother Teresa says, it is a great consolation at the hour of death to be a child of Holy Church.
-St. Francis de Sales
Act of Contrition
O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you, and I detest all my sins because of your just punishments, but most of all because they offend you, my God, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with the help of your grace to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin.
