Grace upon grace...

“He who goes about to reform the world must begin with himself,
or he loses his labor.” - St Ignatius of Loyola

If we confess our sins, He who is upright can be depended upon to forgive sins, 
and to cleanse us from every wrong. - I John 1:9

"Of the gifts of grace which
the soul receives in the Eucharist,
one must be counted among the highest;
the Eucharist does not allow the soul
to remain long in sin
or to persist in it obstinately."

St. Ignatius of Loyola

"Some of us would be surprised if they knew what God

they gave ear to the voice of grace!"  - St Ignatius of Loyola
