Happiness

“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier."

Kindness

“Let there be kindness in your face, in your eyes, in your smile, in the warmth of your greeting. Always have a cheerful smile. Don’t only give your care, but give your heart as well.”

Saintliness

"To say I want to be a saint means stripping oneself of all that is not God."

Faithfulness

“We are not called to be successful, but faithful.”

Humility

“If you are humble nothing will touch you, neither praise nor disgrace, because you know what you are.”

Joy

"Joy is prayer; joy is strength: joy is love; joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. … A joyful heart is the normal result of a heart burning with love."

Faith

"I am ready to give up my life, but not my faith."

Conversion

"We never try to convert those whom we receive… but in our work we bear witness to the love of God’s presence."

Death

"Death, in the final analysis, is only the easiest and quickest means to go back to God … Death can be something beautiful. It is like going home."

Prayer

"Return to family prayer, and maintain it; it is God's greatest gift to keep a family united."

Sacrifice

“A sacrifice, to be real, must cost, must hurt, and we must empty ourselves."

Service

“The fruit of silence is prayer, the fruit of prayer is faith, the fruit of faith is love, the fruit of love is service, and the fruit of service is peace.”
