The Sign of the Cross
We must love with Jesus’ love and His spirit of sacrifice. God loved us by giving Himself to us. We too must give ourselves to one another. Because of this, we must reject whatever would keep us from giving ourselves to one another.—Bl. Mother Teresa

Why should it frighten you that you cannot bear His Cross without weakening? On the way to Calvary Jesus fell three times; and you, a poor little child, would not be like your Spouse, would not fall a hundred times, if need be, to give Him proof of your love by rising up again with greater strength than before your fall.
—St Thérèse of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face, aged 16, letter to Céline dated approx. 23-25 Jan 1889 (LT81).

Christ Leading the Patriarchs to Paradise — Bartolomeo Bermejo, c. 1480
“What is the difference between Christ and Satan?
It is quite simple. Christ descended into hell; Satan fell into it. One of them wanted to go up and went down; the other wanted to go down and went up.”
