• “How different the world would look, how different the state of our nation would be, if there were more sanctified priestly souls! These are souls who have the power to bless, for they intercede with sanctified hearts. They never begin their daily time of intercessory prayer without having first brought to the cross all that is unholy in their lives, so that their old self can be crucified there with Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb.” – Basilea Schlink

Joy and Strength 05/15

Thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.
Ps. lix. 16.

Commit thy way to God,
The weight which makes thee faint
Worlds are to Him no load,
To Him breathe thy complaint.
Up! up! the day is breaking,
Say to thy cares, good-night!
Thy troubles from thee shaking,
Like dreams in day’s fresh light.
Paul Gerhardt.

WHEN you find yourself, as I dare say you sometimes do, overpowered as it were by melancholy, the best way is to go out, and do something kind to somebody or other.
John Keble.

Do not give way to depression, — but resign yourself to our dear Lord with the object of bearing bravely the discomforts and petty contradictions of this life.
Charles de Condren.

Never suffer yourself to be subdued by melancholy ; it is amongst the things that will most injure you. It is impossible to persevere in the path of holiness, if we give not ourselves to it with joy. The love of God should impart peace to the soul.
Madame de Guyon.
