“Look at this cross. Oh, how beautiful it is! It has been my whole happiness during my life, and I advise you also to make it yours.”

“I am not my own. I have given myself to Jesus. He must be my only love.”

“Be assured that you are pleasing in the sight of God, and that I shall help you when I am with Him.” 

“If I should become sick and unable to work, then I shall be like the Lord on the cross. He will have mercy on me and help me, I am sure.” 

“Who will teach me what is most pleasing to God, that I may do it?”

“My Jesus, I must risk everything with You.”

“I will willingly abandon this miserable body to hunger and suffering, provided that my soul may have its ordinary nourishment.” 

“The state of helpless poverty that may befall me if I do not marry does not frighten me. All I need is a little food and a few pieces of clothing. With the work of my hands, I shall always earn what is necessary and what is left over, I’ll give to my relatives and to the poor.”
