A Heart Created
There is nothing more
magnificent or more beautiful to contemplate, whether here on earth
or in heaven, than the love of God for us. We are daily overwhelmed
with Gods benefits. He watches over us and guards us
covers us with His wings, and lavishes on us his most tender caresses.
Accept all from the hand of God, whose heart lovingly disposes everything.
Pray to Him with confidence and love; remember that He who desires
to do you good holds in His hands the power of God.
Let God act. We are only weak instruments he uses to accomplish His
plans. May the Lord be praised in all things! For never are we more
full of life than when we are hidden in God. Let us lose all for God,
and we shall find all in God.
God has vouchsafed to choose us out of the multitude. The blessing
of a vocation is a gift from God, and to Him all the glory of it must
be rendered. Let us hide ourselves in the secret of the face of the
Lord and His great designs will be accomplished.
It is the spirit of faith that animates the whole spiritual life.
Seek then to have that faith which will make you love your vocation
more and more, and walk with the courage in the ways of God.
Go after the lost sheep without other rest than the cross, other consolation
than work, other thirst than for justice. I leave you, as my last
legacy, the love of the cross and zeal for the salvation of souls.
