Comments Off on Saint John of the Cross on Suffering and the Love of God

And I saw a river over which every soul must pass to reach the Kingdom of Heaven, and the name of that river was suffering … and then I saw a boat which carried souls across the river, and the name of that boat was Love.

Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither.

St. Bernadette Soubirous on Loving

Comments Off on St. Bernadette Soubirous on Loving

I shall spend every moment loving. One who loves does not notice her trials; or perhaps more accurately, she is able to love them. I shall do everything for Heaven, my true home. There I shall find my Mother in all the splendor of her glory. I shall delight with her in the joy of Jesus himself in perfect safety.
