Where there is no love, put some love, and you will collect some love.
Saint John of the Cross
We mustn't slander, it offends God, because the neighbor has in him, as us, God's spark; on the contrary, it is necessary to do one's utmost to bring back in the right path those that are late.
Don't confound the man, God's picture, with the pain that is in him, because the pain is accidental, it is a misfortune, an illness, a deception of the demon; but his real being - God's picture - allways remain in him.
Saint John of Cronstadt
Be a well for mistakes of others.
My children, you have a small heart, but the prayer widens it and makes it capable of loving God. The prayer is a foretaste of Heaven, an out-flow of the paradise. It never lets us without sweetness. It is a honey that descends in the soul and eases all. Pains melt in front of a well made prayer, as snow in front of the sun.
Saint Vicar of Ars
It is difficult to pray well, so we are not always granted. To be granted, it is necessary:
To love one's parents.
To be the Father's slave, to submit to His will.
To know that we are the Father's children, that we were not born of the flesh nor the man's will, but that it is God who sent us.
To love one's neighbor more that oneself.
Not to judge one's brother.
" Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. "
Dear children, listen, because I want to speak to you and to invite you to have more faith and confidence in God who loves you without measure. Small children, you don't know how to live in God's grace, it is why I call you all over again to carry God's Word in your hearts and in your reflections. Small children, place the Holly Scriptures in a visible place in your family, read them and live them. Teach your children, because if you are not an example for them, children move away in God's absence. Think and pray, and then God will be born in your heart and your heart will be happy.
Message of the Virgin Mary in Medjugorje, 08.25.1996
The most magnificent attitude a man can reach, it is to be held on the knees.
My life will be worth what will be worth my prayer.
