the Refreshment of holy souls,
our daily and super substantial Bread.” - St. Bonaventure
"As Lent is the time for greater love,
listen to Jesus' thirst...
'Repent and Believe' Jesus tells us.
What are we to repent? Our indifference, our hardness of heart.
What are we to believe?
Jesus thirsts even now, in your heart and in the poor --
He knows our weakness. He wants only your love,
wants only the chance to love you."
Bl Mother Teresa of Calcutta
O Lord, who hast mercy upon all, take away from me my sins,
and mercifully kindle in me the fire of Thy Holy Spirit.
Take away from me the heart of stone, and give me a heart of flesh,
a heart to love and adore Thee, a heart to delight in Thee,
to follow and enjoy Thee, for Christ's sake. Amen. - St Ambrose of Milan (+397)
