Encouragement from Mary and the Saints
Our Lady and the Saints keep on encouraging us. Our Lady of Guadalupe said:
[“Do not fear. ?] am I not your mother? Hear and let it penetrate your heart, my dear little one:
Let nothing discourage you, nothing depress you….”
Encouragement from other saints:
“Let nothing perturb you, nothing frighten you. All things pass. God does not change. Patience achieves everything.”
St. Theresa of Avila
“Pray, Hope and Don’t Worry. Worry and agitation are useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer. “ St. Padre Pio
God is closer to us than we are to ourselves.
Think of this: He is Peace. He wants to hear the smallest things from us. In our weakness we desire God by His grace, and He still desires us.
