Divine Love




“In Heaven, faith and hope will exist no more, for the mist which obscures our reason will be dispelled; our mind will be able to understand the things that are hidden from it here below.  We shall no longer hope for anything, because we shall have everything.  We do not hope to acquire a treasure which we already possess…  But love; oh, we shall be inebriated with it, we shall be drowned, lost in that ocean of divine love, annihilated in that immense charity of the Heart of Jesus!”   St. John Vianney

“I come to the world sent by My Father; consumed by love of twisted, degenerate man, I wish to possess him, make him Mine…  I will make good for the whole of his debt and establish peace between God and man; I will seal the pact so it cannot be undone.”   Jacapone Da Todi, OFM

“The last degree of love is when He gave Himself to us to be our food; because He gave Himself to be united with us in every way.”    St. Bernardine of Siena

“God is love and all his operations proceed from love.”    St. Lawrence of Brindisi

“The Lord would gladly bestow His treasure upon men if He found receptacles ready.”     Blessed Br. Giles

“Whenever the divine favour chooses someone to receive a special grace, or to accept a lofty vocation, God adorns the person chosen with all the gifts of the Spirit needed to fulfill the task at hand.”     St. Bernardine of Siena

“It is better to be alone with God. His friendship will not fail me, nor His counsel, nor His love.”     St. Joan of Arc
