Remember that nothing is small in the eyes of God. Do all that you do with love. -- St. Therese of Liseux

Do not get all upset when difficulties come your way. Laugh in your enemy's face; you are in the arms of the Almighty. Therefore, let God be your strength and your love. -- St. Francis de Sales

All that you do for love is love. Fatigue and even death itself accepted for motives of love is nothing else but love! happy are those who love the cross and carry it generously. It will appear in all its glory in the heavens when Christ Our Lord will come to judge the living and the dead. Heaven is the altar for all who are crucified; therefore, let us love the crosses that we meet as we go through life. -- St. Francis de Sales

Let my soul spend itself in Your praise, rejoicing for love. -- Thomas a Kempis

Love is a mighty power, a great and complete good; Love alone lightens every burden, and makes the rough places smooth. It bears every hardship as thought it were nothing, and renders all bitterness sweet and acceptable. The love of Jesus is noble, and inspires us to great deeds; it moves us always to desire perfection. -- Thomas a Kempis

O Heart of Love, I believe in Your goodness, I hope in Your mercy, I trust in Your love. -- Anon.
