Holiness Is Jesus Living

and Acting in Me


“Our works of charity are nothing but the overflow of our love of God from within. Therefore, the one who is most united to Him loves her neighbor most.”


“We must become holy not because we want to feel holy, but because Christ must be able to live His life fully in us.”


“Sanctity is the acceptance of the will of God with a big smile…that’s all. Just that acceptance, to accept Him as He comes in our life, accepting to take from us what He wants, to make use of us as He wants, to put us where He wants, to use us as He wants…without consulting us.”


“Holiness is not in the feelings or in imagination, it is reality. One thing that helps me and will help you is this: works of love are works of holiness.”


“Let us spend ourselves with Him and for Him. Let Him see with your eyes, speak with your tongue, work with your hands, walk with your feet, think with your head, and love with your heart. Is this not perfect union, a continual loving prayer? God is our loving Father. Let your light of love so shine before man that seeing your good works (the washing, sweeping, cooking, loving your husband and the children), they may glorify the Father.”


“Be holy. Holiness is the easiest way to satiate Jesus’s Thirst, His for you and yours for Him.”
