and love therein impressed.

clothed with all the many tokens of love
won in the service of God
since the beginning of the world…
And our living hearts
shall flame with burning love for God
and all His saints…”

on the altars in all probability
but if we are faithful,
in Heaven we will be proclaimed ‘blessed’

Let us try to merit this hour of eternal delights.”

“Work always with the same spirit of Christ.
Keep Jesus before your eyes.
He is the model of all called to glory.”

if we accomplished great deeds,
or been acclaimed by men,
rather we will be asked
if we followed His will,
in the state and condition,
to which we were called.”
