"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!"

One of the best marks of the goodness of all inspirations and especially the extraordinary is peace and tranquility of heart in those who receive them, since the Holy Spirit is indeed violent but with a violence that is gentle, mild, and peaceful. He comes “like a violent wind” and like thunder from heaven, but He does not overthrow them, nor does He trouble them. The fear seizing them at His sound is momentary and is immediately followed by a sweet assurance.
–St. Francis de Sales
