Divine Mercy Novena starts today

Since I almost always forget, I was grateful to Maria for the reminder.

The most beautiful credo is that which comes from your lips in darkness, in sacrifice, in pain, in supreme effort of an unbending will for good. It is this which like a strong of lightening penetrates the darkness of the soul; it is this which in a flash of the tempest lifts you and leads you to God.
-Bl. Padre Pio

When you feel the assaults of passion and anger, then is the time to be silent as Jesus was. Silent in the midst of his ignominies and sufferings.
-St. Paul of the Cross

"Take the holy crucifix in your hands, kiss its wounds with great love, and ask Him to preach you a sermon. Listen to what the thorns, the nails, and that Divine Blood say to you. Oh! What a sermon." --St Paul of the Cross
