He [Christ], protects their faith
and gives strength to believers,
in proportion to the TRUST,
that each man,
who receives that strength,
is willing to place in Him.”

“The Lord is near,
do not be anxious
St Augustine (354-430)
Great Western Father and Doctor of Grace
“Rest is in Him alone.
Man knows no peace in the world
but he has no disturbance
when he is with God.”
St Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153)
“He who trusts in God
can do all things.”
St Francis de Sales (1567-1622)
Doctor of Charity
“Free your mind from all that troubles you;
God will take care of things.
You will be unable to make haste in this (choice) without,
so to speak,
grieving the heart of God
because He sees that you do not honour Him sufficiently
with holy trust.
Trust in Him, I beg you
and you will have the fulfilment
of what your heart desires.”
St Vincent de Paul (1581-1660)
“Oh! My God,
how much Your Hand was upon me
and yet how little I was aware of it!
How good You are! How good You are!
How You protected me!
How you covered me with Your wings,
when I did not even believe in Your existence!”
