Thoughts to Ponder

In 07 Observation on 2013/02/09 at 10:35 AM

Not only has He ransomed us from sin and death, but He has taught us to put the will of God above all personal plans, to live detached from everything, to know how to pardon, even when the offender has not repented, to know how to forgive others, to be apostles until the very moment of death.

(F. Fernandez IN CONVERSATION WITH GOD. II, 46.1)

“In our own lives, perhaps there will be no shortage of tempests and threatening skies, of interior darkness, of misunderstandings – and, with more or less regular frequency, situations in which we should correct our course because we have gone astray.  Then we should strive to see Our Lord, who always comes in the storm of suffering.  Let us learn to accept the setbacks with faith, as blessing from heaven to purify us and draw us closer to God.  He said: ‘It is I; do not be afraid.”

Fernandez, Francis IN CONVERSATION WITH GOD, Vol.II: 60.3

“The interior life is nothing but continual and direct conversation with Christ, so as to become one with him.”

F. Fernandez IN CONVERSATION WITH GOD, Vol VI, 26.3.
