Source of mercy and love...

"For all of us, then, the season of Lent in this Jubilee Year is a
favourable time to overcome our existential alienation by listening
to God's word and by practicing the works of mercy. ... Let us not waste
this season of Lent, so favourable a time of conversion!" 
- Pope Francis, excerpt Lenten Message 2016*

“To learn from the Heart of Jesus 
the secret of love for souls and deep knowledge of them
how to touch their hurts without making them smart and to dress 
their wounds without reopening them; ... 
to disclose Truth in its entirety and yet make it known
according to the degree of light that each soul can bear.

The knowledge required for the apostolate can be had 
only from Jesus Christ, 
in the Eucharist and in prayer.”

Elisabeth Leseur
