Words of Inspiration: January 31, 2007

St. Padre Pio:

"I have no desire except to die or to love God; either death or love, since life without this love is worse than death and for me it would be more unbearable than it is at present."

St. Teresa of Avila:

"It should be observed that perfect love of God consists not in those delights, tears, and sentiments of devotion that we generally seek, but in a strong determination and keen desire to please God in all things, and to promote His glory."

I love that picture of St. Pio. I once gave a copy of it to the Mormon missionaries! God Bless!

I know of a Guatemalan Catholic evangelist who was instantly converted to Catholicism by a closeup photo of his bloody hand.
