O Heart of Love,
I place all my trust in Thee,
for I fear all things from my own weakness,
but I hope for all things
from Thy goodness.
St. Margaret Mary
I live through the mercy of Jesus, to whom I owe everything and from
whom I expect everything.
Pope John the 23rd
Yet, O Lord, though I have no feeling of confidence in You,
nevertheless, I know that You are my God, that I am all Yours, and
that I have no hope but in your goodness; so, I abandon myself
entirely into Your hands.
St. Francis de Sales
You make a root below the soil flourish and you can make fruitful the
darkness in which you keep me.
Jean-Pierre de Caussade
I adore all Thy purposes without knowing them; I am silent; I offer
myself in sacrifice; I yield myself to Thee; I would have no other
desire than to accomplish Thy will. Teach me to pray; pray Thyself in
May I be patient! It is so difficult to realize what one believes,
and to make these trials, as they are intended, real blessings.
John Henry Cardinal Newman
My own heart let me more have pity on.
Gerard Manley Hopkins, S.J.
