The whole world is asleep, and God, so full of goodness, so great, so worthy of all praise, no one is thinking of him! See, nature praises him, and man… who ought to praise him, sleeps! Let us go and wake up the universe… and sing his praises. — Blessed Mariam Baouardy (1846-1878)
From all evil
Good Lord, deliver us.
The devil is afraid of us when we pray and make sacrifices. He is also afraid when we are humble and good. He is especially afraid when we love Jesus very much. He runs away when we make the Sign of the Cross. — St. Anthony of the Desert, Abbot (via badwolfcomplex)
