We must pray; is our food without which nourishment we perish. A life of prayer supposes a life of self-renunciation. Solid virtue, perfection implies a life of prayer.
Let us never forget that if we wish to die like saints we must also live like them. Let us force ourselves to imitate their virtue, in particular humility and charity. What do we have to do to become saints? Nothing extraordinary; nothing more than what we do every day. Only do it for God’s love.
You will see many things in new lights if you give the Holy Spirit free access to your minds and to your hearts.
–St. Mother Theodore Guerin
