Blessed John Henry Newman

Blessed John Henry Newman 

Let us seek the grace of a cheerful heart, an even temper, sweetness, gentleness, and brightness of mind, as walking in His light, and by His grace. Let us pray Him to give us the spirit of ever-abundant, ever-springing love, which overpowers and sweeps away the vexations of life by its own richness and strength, and which above all things unites us to Him Who is the fountain and the center of all mercy, loving-kindness and joy.

John Henry Newman

The Immaculate and Sacred Hearts

The Immaculate and Sacred Hearts

“Please resemble Me as much as possible. Say to yourself throughout the day: ‘I will do this for Him.’ In this way, you will grow closer to Me. On earth the tenderness between My Mother and Me was so great that we had only one Heart. Try to be like her by making your will one with Mine, your great Friend.

In the morning, say to Me that everything during the day will be for Me. Then from time to time during the day, give me a little word such as… ‘This is for You, my dear God.’ It will warm your heart and bring balm to Mine.”

Our Lord to Catholic mystic Gabrielle Bossis
