Jesus is happy to come with us, as truth is happy to be spoken, as life to be lived, as light to be lit, as love is to be loved, as joy to be given, as peace to be spread – St. Francis of Assisiimage

My God,  I give you my heart, and since you are so good as to give me another day, give me the grace that everything I do will be for Your honor and the salvation of my soul.    –  St. John Vianney

Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Think of Mary
“In dangers, in doubts, in difficulties, think of Mary, call upon Mary. Let not her name depart from your lips, never suffer it to leave your heart. And that you may obtain the assistance of her prayer, neglect not to walk in her footsteps. With her for guide, you shall never go astray; invoking her, you shall never lose heart.” — St. Bernard of Clairvaux
(from Live Mercy Day by Day)
