THE ROOT OF EVERYTHING IS LOVE

If you keep silent- keep silent out of love.
 If you speak-speak out of love.
 If you warn someone about something-warn them out of love.
 If you forgive-forgive out of love.
…Let the internal root of everything be love, from this root only good can grow.
 St. Augustine


“The things that we love tell us what we are.”
— ― St. Thomas Aquinas

WHAT YOU SOW YOU REAP

theraccolta:

Prayer to St. Camillus de Lellis for the Sick Poor
O glorious Saint Camillus, special patron of the sick poor, thou who for forty years, with truly heroic charity, didst devote thyself to the relief of their temporal and spiritual necessities, be pleased to assist them now even more generously, since thou art blessed in heaven and they have been committed by Holy Church to thy powerful protection. Obtain for them from Almighty God the healing of all their maladies, or, at least, the spirit of Christian patience and resignation that they may sanctify them and comfort them in the hour of their passing to eternity; at the same time obtain for us the precious grace of living and dying after thine example in the practice of divine love. Amen.

Brother if you commit a sin, and take pleasure in it, the pleasure passes away but the sin remains.
But if you do something virtuous, even though you are tired, the tiredness passes away  but the virtue remains

—Saint Camillus de Lellis

HOPE AND COURAGE IN THE SERVICE OF CHRIST

Start being brave about everything. 
Drive out darkness and spread light. 
Don’t look at your weaknesses. 
Realize instead that in Christ crucified you can do everything.

St Catherine from Siena
