How could we possibly have the heart to mock these people or to hate them, this multitude of sinners with whom we rub shoulders?
The solitude of God in fraternal charity; it is Christ serving Christ, Christ in the one who is serving and Christ in the one being served. - Madeleine Delbrel

"As for me, I said: 'Lord, have mercy on me, heal my soul for I have sinned against you.'" - Psalm 41


  1. Have begun to feel that the Blessed Mother continuing to live in peace with the people of her town after they attempted to kill her Son should be among the 'Seven Sorrows.'
