doorThe closing of a door can bring blessed privacy and comfort
– the opening, terror.
Conversely, the closing of a door can be a sad and final thing
– the opening a wonderfully joyous moment.

God our Lord would have us look to the Giver and love Him more than His gift, keeping Him always before our eyes, in our hearts, and in our thoughts. 
(Saint Ignatius)


sunnyCommit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.
He will make your vindication shine like the light,
and the justice of your cause like the noonday.
Be still before the Lord, and wait patiently for him;
do not fret over those who prosper in their way,
over those who carry out evil devices.”
(Psalm 37:5-7)


We should take as a maxim never to be surprised at current difficulties, no more than at a passing breeze, because with a little patience we shall see them disappear.
Time changes everything.

(St. Vincent de Paul)



Prayer is an act of love; words are not needed. Even if sickness distracts from thoughts, all that is needed is the will to love.
(Saint Teresa of Avila)



Here is a test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished:  If you’re alive, it isn’t.  (Richard Bach)




What wisdom can you find that is greater than kindness?   (Jean-Jacques Rousseau)
