Hello lovely reader,
For this month, I have compiled a set of five quotes, taken from saints and other influential religious figures, that will hopefully provide you with as much love and encouragement in your life like it has for me.
“Pray, hope, and don’t worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.” – Saint Pio of Petrelcina
This quote instills a calm deep in my heart that no matter what I am going through in life, through prayer, all my worries can be relieved.
“What you are is God’s gift to you, what you become is your gift to God.” – Hans Mrs von Balthasar
How powerful those words seem to me in times when I feel as if I am a waste of space! However, every human is precious, because God created us each for a reason. If we become the people He desires and asks us to be, we become the greatest gift to Him. I remember this quote daily, in order to continually remind myself to strive for the path the God has placed before me.
“Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” – Saint Francis of Assisi
Everybody needs to be reminded that the impossible is truly possible and through God, anything can happen.
” Dont say: ‘ That person gets on my nerves,’ think: ‘That person sanctifies me.’ ” – Saint Josemaria Escriva
Every time we enact the values that God asks us to have, we are collecting mercies and blessings from Him. Therefore, each person that brings out negative emotions in us, brings a chance to achieve sanctification through Christ.
“O soul steeped in darkness, Do not despair. All is not yet lost. Come and confide in your God, who is love and mercy.” – Saint Faustina
I wanted to end this quote list with a quote that truly gives encouragement and releases love to all those who are suffering. ‘Do not despair’! Confide in God and you will feel His love and mercy.
