set no store by those things which He regarded as
of no account.

DIRECTLY anyone feels they are losing their fervour,
they should at once make a Novena to the Holy

We can only receive God once a day; a soul enkindled
with divine love makes up for this by the desire of
receiving Him every moment of the day.

GOD will forgive those who have forgiven; that is the law.

you and on all you do.

SOME people give alms that they may be seen, and praised,
and admired . . . . Some think they do not received thanks

sake, what does it matter if you are thanked or not?
