1- Prayer is the best weapon we have; it is the key to God’s heart. You must speak to Jesus not only with your lips, but with your heart. In fact on certain occasions you should only speak to Him with your heart.
2- Some people are so foolish that they think they can go through life without the help of the Blessed Mother. Love the Madonna and pray the rosary, for her Rosary is the weapon against the evils of the world today. All graces given by God pass through the Blessed Mother.
3- Every Holy Mass, heard with devotion, produces in our souls marvelous effects, abundant spiritual and material graces which we, ourselves, do not know…It is easier for the earth to exist without the sun than without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass!
4- Pray, Hope, and Don’t Worry
5- Our Lord loves you and loves you tenderly; and if He does not let you feel the sweetness of His love, it is to make you more humble and abject in your own eyes.
6- Go to the Madonna. Love her! Always say the Rosary. Say it well. Say it as often as you can! Be souls of prayer. Never tire of praying, it is what is essential. Prayer shakes the Heart of God, it obtains necessary graces!
7- On this earth everyone has his cross. But we must act in such a way that we be not the bad, but good thief.
8- God commands us to love Him, not as much as He deserves, because He knows our capabilities and therefore He does not ask us to do what we cannot do. But He asks us to love Him according to our strength, with all our soul, all our mind, and all our heart.
9- You must concentrate on pleasing God alone, and if He is pleased, you must be pleased.
10- May the Child Jesus be the star that guides you through the desert of your present life.
11- Prayer is the oxygen of the soul.
12- The Lord is a Father, the most tender and best of fathers. He cannot fail to be moved when His children appeal to Him.
13- Only in Heaven will everything be as beautiful as spring, as pleasant as autumn, and as full of love as summer.
14- Who can assure us that we will be alive tomorrow? Let us listen to the voice of our conscience, to the voice of the royal prophet: “Today, if you hear God’s voice, harden not your heart.” Let us not put off from one moment to another (what we should do) because the (next moment) is not yet ours.
15- Through the study of books one seeks God; by meditation one finds him.
