Good Words

It is folly to leave your goods where you can never return, and to send nothing to that place where you must remain for ever. --VEN. LOUIS OF GRANADA.

Be assured that one great means to find favor when we appear before God is to have pardoned the injuries we have received here below. --VEN. LOUIS OF GRANADA.

The dross is consumed by the fire, but the pure gold remains and its value increases. It is in this manner that God acts with his good servant, who puts his hope in him and remain unshaken in times of distress. God raise him up and, in return for the things he has left out of love for God, he repays him a hundredfold in this life and with eternal life hereafter. --ST. JEROME EMILIANI.

And here's one that could have come from the tongue of G.K.C.:

Seeing the sun, the moon and the stars, I said to myself: who could be the Master of these beautiful things? And I felt a great desire to see him, to know him and to pay him homage. --ST. JOSEPHINE BAKHITA.
