Quote/s of the Day – 26 August – The Memorial of St Mary of Jesus Crucified OCD (1846-1878)

and God is so great,
and He is not loved.”
“The proud person is like a grain of wheat
thrown into water – it swells, it gets big.
Expose that grain to the fire – it dries up, it burns.

thrown into the earth –
it descends, it hides itself,
it disappears, it dies
but to revive
