"What was the saddest moment of your life?"
"When my mother died."
"What was your mother’s best quality?"
"How do you say in English— she always flew straight. Sometimes it makes your life much easier to go a little to the left, or a little to the right. She was a Catholic in communist Poland and it was not good to be a Catholic during that time. Especially because she was a teacher. It was very difficult for her, to be a Catholic and raise three children. It would have been much easier for her to join the Communist Party. But she never did.”
The more I come to know the greatness of God, the more joyful I become that He is as He is. And I rejoice immensely in His greatness and am delighted that I am so little because, since I am little, He carries me in His arms and holds me close to His Heart.
(Diary of St. Faustina - 779)
Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.
“I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; [the] night is coming when no one can work.
“As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”
Jn 9, 3-5
"Hey, how many fingers am I holding up."
"Jesus, please stop."
Please say a prayer for me, I feel like Satan’s trying to get a hold of me and my mind by making me feel angry and sad all the time, Thank you all so much, I appreciate every single effort made

Marry a man who loves Jesus. Who loves God before he even knows that you exist. A man who falls to his knees, with tears in his eyes and hands held high, without a care to the world watching him. A man who knows that God is the best foundation in your relationship. A relationship that brings you each other closer to Him.
The man who loves Jesus will respect you. He’ll pursue you and treasure you. He won’t pressure you or control you, but gently walk beside you and lead you. He will appreciate you as the gift and beauty you are, and remind you of it every day. He will worship with you. He’ll pray for you and pray with you. He will lead you with strong hands, stand up when you can’t, but remind you that only God can satisfy.
It is still idolatry to want God for His benefits but not for Himself.
