Powers of the Soul

February 27

February 27

The love of talk distracts all the powers of our soul from God and fills them with earthly objects and impressions like a vessel of water which cannot be clear and settled while you are continually stirring the earthly particles from the bottom.

                                                                      -- St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

Feast of the Seven Founders of the Order of Servites

In the beginning our Lady was the chief architect of this new order which was founded on the humility of its members, built up by their mutual love, and preserved by their poverty.

Cruciform

February 16

February 16

"One of the favorite images I like to use for describing the Christian life is of a person standing with arms outstretched.  One hand, in faith and prayer, touches God; the other hand is extended in service to the neighbor.  Thus a person is cruciform, touching God and touching neighbor."

Love

February 14

February 14

Love is the key to the mystery. Love by its very nature is not selfish, but generous. It seeks not its own, but the good of others. The measure of love is not the pleasure it gives – that is the way the world judges it – but the joy and peace it can purchase for others.

                                                            --Ven. Fulton J. Sheen

His Will

February 13

February 13

What do you think His will is? The Lord asks of us only two things: love of His Majesty and love of our neighbor. These are what we must work for. By keeping them with perfection, we do His will and so will be united with Him.

                                                                        --St. Teresa of Avila

Purity

February 12

February 12

If you would attain the purity you ask of me, there are three principal things you must do. You must be united with me in loving affection, bearing in your memory the blessings you have received from me. With the eye of your understanding you must see my affectionate charity, how unspeakably much I love you. And when the human will is concerned you must consider my will rather than people’s evil intentions, for I am their judge – not you, but I.

--Our Lord to St. Catherine of Siena
