Suffering is something flowing from a deep union with Christ and from obedience to one's calling in the world rather than as a test of love or a discipline to strengthen the soul as demanded by God. - via St. Paul

Descending into the depths of my own nothingness, I was raised so high that I reached my goal. -St John of the Cross

"I wish you enough"


"I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.

I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye."

Selfishness and selflessness


Our very own self love can lead us to selflessness. We seek what makes us happy, what brings us joy and what excites us. In the end, it gives way to prayer, a journey of purity and grace in the presence of God, both a selfish and selfless act on our part. -Malou
