"Charity gave me the key to my vocation. I understood that the Church had a Heart and that this Heart was burning with love. I understood that Love comprised all vocations, that Love was everything, that it embraced all times and a word, that it was eternal! My vocation, at last I have found it...My vocation is Love!"

To bless God and to thank Him for whatever events His Providence ordains is truly a most holy exercise. However, while we leave to God the care of willing and doing in us, on us, and with us whatever pleases Him, without attending to what occurs—even though we fell it fully—then, if we can divert our hearts and fix our attention on God’s goodness and sweetness, blessing it not in its effects and in the events it ordains, but in itself and in its own perfection, we will undoubtedly perform a still higher exercise.
--St. Francis de Sales
