„Jsme povoláni být přáteli těch, kdo nemají přátele.“

„the one thing we owe absolutely to God is never to be afraid of anything.“


„The moment I realized that God existed, I knew that I could not do otherwise than to live for him alone... Faith strips the mask from the world and reveals God in everything. It makes nothing impossible and renders meaningless such words as anxiety, danger, and fear, so that the believer goes through life calmly and peacefully, with profound joy- like a child, hand in hand with his mother.“

„It is not necessary to teach others, to cure them or to improve them; it is only necessary to live among them, sharing the human condition and being present to them in love.“

„Father of mine, I abandon myself to you, make of me that which is pleasing to you. Whatever you might do to me, I thank you.“

„What is this peace, different from that which the world gives? This peace is the one your love gives... a peace greater than suffering, not a peace without war, but a peace in spite of war, during war, above war, the peace of the soul, having, through love, its whole life in heaven and thus enjoying the peace of heaven in spite of everything which may happen on earth around it and against it. - from Michel Carrouges, "Soldier of the Spirit“

„Crosses release us from this world, and by doing so, bind us to God. —Charles de Foucauld“

„I no longer want a monastery which is too secure, I want a small monastery, like the house of a poor workman who is not sure if tomorrow he will find work and bread, who with all his being shares the suffering of the world.“
