Our Lord loves you and loves you tenderly; and if He does not let you feel the sweetness of His love, it is to make you more humble and abject in your own eyes.

St. Pio of Pietrelcino (via novenanerd)

(via mundacormeum)

And when night comes, and you look back over the day and see how fragmentary everything has been, and how much you planned that has gone undone, and all the reasons you have to be embarrassed and ashamed: just take everything exactly as it is, put it in God’s hands and leave it with Him. Then you will be able to rest in Him - really rest - and start the next day as a new life.

St. Edith Stein, Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (via acatholicvibe)
