Words of Inspiration: February 17

Remember, Ash Wednesday, which falls on this coming Wednesday, is a mandatory day of fasting and abstinence. For more information on this and other Lenten issues, please see my page: Everything Lent.

"The soul must have two inner eyes, one to know the enormity of one’s defects and the other to see always the good things it receives from God, the little advantage it draws from these whereas others draw greater advantage from them" (St Mary Magdalene de Pazzi)

"In pure love, there is room for everything: the highest praise and the deepest adoration, yet the soul is immersed in Him in deepest peace through love; and the words of people, speaking from the exterior, have no effect upon that soul. What they tell the soul about God is but a pale shadow in comparison to its own experience of Him; and it is often surprised how other people can be struck with admiration at what someone else says about God when, for this soul, it is nothing special, as it knows that what can be put into words is not yet that great. So this soul listens to everything with respect, but has its own special life in God" (947, St Faustina).

"Jesus loved and still loves the unwanted and the unloved. He loves them deeply. He died for them" (Blessed Mother Teresa)
