Take care of yourself — you never know when the world will need you.
“I see that you are very hasty and impetuous and you wish that you would not have these very natural feelings; but that is not possible. As long as you are in this world, my child, you will have to struggle with your faults. You must accept yourself as you are, and to do this, you must ask God to fill you with His Spirit through your prayers and meditation. May it be this Divine Spirit who does battle within you and makes you victorious! Seek the glory of God and the salvation of souls in everything: it is the only thing necessary. As for your physical sufferings and all others, too, I will repeat St. Francis de Sales’ words to you: “Love your crosses, they are all made of gold and are the seeds of glory and unalloyed happiness.”
