A ready drop of balm...

"A single moment of tribulation assures an immense
weight of glory. Never to suffer would be
the greatest danger for us." - St Paul of the Cross

Pope Francis’ grandmother’s words (kept in his breviary):

“May these my grandchildren, to whom I have given the best 
of my heart, have a long and happy life, but if on some painful day, sickness or the loss of a loved one fills you with grief,
remember that a sigh before the Tabernacle, 
where the greatest and most august martyr resides,
and a gaze at Mary at the foot of the Cross, can make a drop 
of balm fall on the deepest and most painful wounds.”
