O Sacred Heart of Jesus! Living and life-giving Fountain of eternal life, infinite treasure of the Divinity, glowing furnace of Love! You are my refuge and my sanctuary. Oh my adorable and lovely Savior, consume my heart with that burning fire with which You are inflamed. Pour down on my soul those graces which flow from Your Love, and let my heart be so united with Yours, that our wills may be one, and mine in all things conformed to Yours. May Your Will be the rule alike of my desires and all my actions. Amen
— St. Gertrude the Great
When anyone reposes all his confidence in God, God continually exercises a special protection over him, and in this state of things he can be assured that no evil will happen to him.
— St. Vincent de Paul
Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
on your own intelligence do not rely;
6In all your ways be mindful of him,
and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3 5-6

|Hebrews 9: 11 – 15
||But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things that have come, then through the greater and more perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation)
||he entered once for all into the Holy Place, taking not the blood of goats and calves but his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption.
||For if the sprinkling of defiled persons with the blood of goats and bulls and with the ashes of a heifer sanctifies for the purification of the flesh,
||how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify your conscience from dead works to serve the living God.
||Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred which redeems them from the transgressions under the first covenant
Dismiss all anger and look into yourself a little. Remember that he of whom you are speaking is your brother, and, as he is in the way of salvation, God can make him a Saint, in spite of his present weakness.
— St. Thomas of Villanova
Those who trust in themselves are worse than the devil!!

|2 Peter 1: 2 – 7
||May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
||His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence,
||by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, that through these you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of passion, and become partakers of the divine nature.
||For this very reason make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge,
||and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness,
||and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.
