Therefore I say unto you, all things whatsoever you ask when you pray, believe that you shall receive: and they shall come unto you..
The thought of the world to come
will always make us happy, and
yet strict with ourselves in all
our duties. The more perfect we
become, the sooner shall we
behold that for which St.
All perfection consists in
keeping a guard upon the heart.
Wherever we are, we can make a
solitude in our hearts, detach
ourselves from the world, and
converse familiarly with God.
Let us take St. Margaret for our
example and encouragement.
St. Barnabas's life is full of
suggestions to us who live in
days when once more the abundant
alms of the faithful are sorely
needed by the whole Church, from
the Sovereign Pontiff to the
poor children in our streets.
All men desire peace, but those
alone enjoy it who, like St.
John, are completely dead to
themselves, and love to bear all
things for Christ.
