In prayer one must hold fast and never let go, because the one who gives up loses all. If it seems that no one is listening to you, then cry out even louder. If you are driven out of one door, go back in by the other.
Cordial love of the neighbor does not consist in feelings. This love flows not from a heart of flesh but from the heart of our will.
Hell is full of the talented, but Heaven of the energetic.
When shall it be that we shall taste the sweetness of the Divine Will in all that happens to us, considering in everything only His good pleasure, by whom it is certain that adversity is sent with as much love as prosperity, and as much for our good? When shall we cast ourselves undeservedly into the arms of our most loving Father in Heaven, leaving to Him the care of ourselves and of our affairs, and reserving only the desire of pleasing Him, and of serving Him well in all that we can?
An evil discovered is half healed.
May our hearts be enlarged with compassionate loving support of our neighbor! Let us always be ready to serve, assist, console, support, and comfort others as much as possible in a spirit of joy and cordiality. An open heart is a heart disposed to help the neighbor at all times. Such a heart loves the will of God above all things.
(Right now, one of the best things you can do for your neighbors is to buy Ivermectin 1% livestock injectable solution and distribute it in 50mL glass dropper bottles for people to have on hand to take orally should they need it. Why imperil your doctor by insisting upon “human” prescription pill form, exposing him to Coviet attack, when you can buy exactly the same thing at the farm supply store? At this point, it’s a question of fraternal Charity to keep doctors totally out of it. -AB)
