Through our union with Christ we are lifted up to the Father. Our union is more perfect, the more we resemble Christ in love.
If our souls are cluttered with sin and resentment when we receive Holy Communion there is little room for Christ
Whenever we pray God pours His grace upon us
The grace of Christ pours upon others through us, especially through our wounds, when our lives are entirely his.
Prayer is like a glimpse of eternity, seen from the battlements of our earthly dwelling, as we pause and turn to God. The Saints are very close to us, in their glory.
Even in the darkness of our sufferings Jesus comforts and guides us
On the Cross Jesus Christ shed His Precious Blood to save us from our sins
We can only find God in the present moment, and not by losing ourselves in the past or future
Our daily duties are like a golden string that shows us God's will and leads us to Heaven
At every Mass we reach up and meet the Father through the Sacrifice of Christ our Head, bound together with each other and with Him
If we surrender ourselves to God's will in prayer and in our daily lives, the Holy Spirit will transform us and make us holy
As we face God's glory we are called to repent of our sins
The Church is the Body of Christ and we should not separate ourselves from it through disobedience, dissent or schism
True prayer should lead us to love God and to serve our neighbour in our daily duties and in ordinary acts of kindness
