The Christian heart is always full of joy.  Always.
Joy received as a gift and kept in order to be shared with everyone.  – 
Pope Francis




Think no more of what people say, but of pleasing the Heart of Jesus alone, according to the lights He will give you. He loves you and He will never allow you to perish, as long as you trust in Him.
St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

poppyAs for man, his days are like the grass;
he blossoms like a flower in the field.

A wind sweeps over it and it is gone;
its place knows it no more. 

But the LORD’s mercy is from age to age,
toward those who fear him. 

His salvation is for the children’s children of those who keep his covenant, and remember to carry out his precepts.
(Psalms 103: 15-18)


For as the heavens tower over the earth, so his mercy towers over those who fear him. 

As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our sins from us. 

As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him.  For he knows how we are formed, remembers that we are dust.  (Psalms 103:11-14)
