Give whatever God wants and accept what he gives with a big smile.

Jesus you are my God
Jesus you are my spouse
Jesus my life, my love, my all in all
Jesus word to be spoken
Jesus truth to be told
Jesus love to be loved
Jesus light to be lit
Jesus joy to be shared
Jesus peace to be given

Life is bliss, taste it.

I can see and hear Jesus, who weeps and cries aloud bitterly, “I thirst”, on every footpath and from every slum. It is the same Jesus I see in the Blessed Sacrament.

Let us do something beautiful for God.

What the poor need, even more than food or clothes, is to be wanted.

Without our suffering, our work would be just social work - very good and useful, but not the work of Jesus Christ.

God is the friend of silence.

The other day I dreamed that I was at the gates of heaven… And St Peter said, “Go back to Earth, there are no slums up here.”

We try to pray through our work by doing it with Jesus, for Jesus, to Jesus. That helps us to put our whole heart and soul into doing it. The dying, the crippled, the mentally ill, the unwanted, the unloved – they are Jesus in disguise.

I can do no great thing, only small things with great love.
