How foolish are those who waste time in desiring to be martyred in far countries, but do not apply themselves in their state of life.
 St. Francis de Sales (via badwolfcomplex)

(via heartlessmuffineater)

Do not throw away that confidence you have of attaining spiritual things-there is still time and opportunity. But why put off making your resolve? Stand up and begin this moment ; say to yourself: NOW is the time for action, NOW is the time for battle, NOW is the right time to mend my ways.
The Imitation of Christ by: Thomas a Kempis, Book 1, XXII,61
God can use our weakness as easily as our strength in order to accomplish His will.
Blessed Pope John Paul II (via catholiclight)

(via catholicmemes)

To lose one’s way is nothing more than the giving up of prayer. Whoever does not pray does not need the devil to lead him off the path. He will throw himself into hell.
St. Teresa of Avila
“We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures; we are the sum of the Father’s love for us and our real capacity to become the image of his Son.”

-Blessed Pope John Paul II
