No pilgrim soul can worthily love God. But when a soul does everything possible and trusts in divine mercy, why would Jesus reject such a spirit? Has HE not commanded us to love God according to our strength? If you have given and consecrated everything to God, why be afraid? — St. Padre Pio (via itsadenise)

Do NOT let fear hold you back.

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.
