In the midst of trials I will try to see the loving hand of God. Nothing is as constant as suffering—it always faithfully keeps the soul company. O Jesus, I will let no one surpass me in loving You!
-St. Faustina Kowalska
…tame yourself to pains, as if you were always to live in them; you will find that when you think no more of your deliverance, God will think of it, and when you make no hurry about it, He will run to you.
-St. Francis de Sales
Prayer for Christ’s Triple Coming
Lamb of God, You once came to rid the world of sin; cleanse me now of every stain of sin. Lord, You came to save what was lost; come once again with Your salvific power so that those You redeemed will not be punished. I have come to know You in faith; may I have unending joy when You come again in glory.
