Dear sisters who are waiting for a man —
Please allow me the grace to let you know, you’re not waiting for a man. A man is not the focal point of anything. Jesus is the focal point of everything.
To say “singleness is a gift” is true, but it also tells only half the story. We’re assuming that…
The measure to which we are immersed in Christ is the measure to which we are in love with and devoted to Christ in the Eucharist who comes to us under the disguise of bread and wine. The measure to which we belong to the world is the measure to which we do not recognise Him and see bread and wine, rather than Body and Blood.
—C. Martin (via catholicsplash)
Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.
—St. Catherine of Siena
Beginners in the service of God sometimes lose confidence when they fall into any fault. When you feel so unworthy a sentiment rising within you, you must lift your heart to God and consider that all your faults, compared with divine goodness, are less than a bit of tattered thread thrown into a sea of fire.
Though God knows all our needs, prayer is necessary for the cleansing and enlightenment of our soul. It is the well to stand in the sunshine; it is warm and light; likewise, when standing in prayer before God, our spiritual Sun, we are warmed and enlightened. It is necessary to wash ourselves from dirt, and prayer is washing ourselves from spiritual filth, that is from sins.
—St. John of Kronstadt (via orthodoxthoughts)
If feeding the flesh the only thing that holds two people together it will not hold for long. It means that once the fire comes you will not be able to withstand it. It will burn and turn into ashes. The only thing that is able to withstand is a Christ centered relationship. That’s the only thing that will work. Not sex, not anything but Him alone.
