"Mary is the fruitful Virgin,
and in all the souls in which she comes
to dwell she causes to flourish purity of heart and body, rightness of intention and abundance of good works. Do not imagine that Mary, the most fruitful of creatures who gave birth to a God, remains barren in a faithful soul. It will be she who makes the soul live incessantly for Jesus Christ, and will make Jesus live in the soul."

"Pray with great confidence,
with confidence based on the goodness and infinite generosity of God and upon the promises of Jesus Christ. God is a spring of living water which flows unceasingly into the
hearts of those who pray."
"The cross is the greatest gift God
could bestow on His Elect on earth. There is nothing so necessary, so beneficial, so sweet, or so glorious as to suffer something for Jesus. If you suffer as you ought, the cross will become a precious yoke that Jesus will carry with you."
otherwise you would remain unpolished stone, of no value at all, to be disregarded and cast aside.
Do not cause the hammer to recoil when it strikes you. Yield to the chisel that is
carving you and the hand that is shaping you."
