St. Paul of the Cross
(1694-1775) Mystic and Passionist
“Have you ever noticed rocks in the sea, beaten by the tempest? A furious wave dashes against the rock, another and yet another does likewise, yet the rock is unmoved. But look at it after the storm has subsided, and you will see that the flood has but served to wash and purify it of the defilement it had contracted during the calm. Hereafter I wish you to be as a rock. A wave dashes against you? Silence! It assails you ten, a hundred, a thousand times? Silence! Say, at most, in the midst of the storm, “My Father, my Father, I am all Thine! Oh dear, O’ sweet will of God, I adore Thee !” ~ St. Paul of the Cross

dedicating-my-life-to-god:

The fear of the Lord is:

  •  A deep feeling of respect and reverence for Him because of who He is.
  •  A conscious acknowledgement of His power and authority over you.
  •  A conscious acknowledgement of your utter dependence on Him.

When you look at the Crucifix, you understand how much Jesus loved you then. When you look at the Sacred Host you understand how much Jesus loves you now. — Blessed Teresa of Calcutta (via beholybehappy)
