"Who could have given me our Lord, but the Virgin Mary? It was easy to pray to her, repetitious though it may seem. Saying the rosary as I did so often, I felt that I was praying with the people of God, who held on to the physical act of the rosary as to a lifeline."

"I set my heart on God with all my trust and all my might…He wills that our hearts should be lifted high above the depths of earthly and vain sorrows and rejoice in Him…He loves us and enjoys us, and so he wills that we love him and enjoy him and firmly trust him; and all shall be well."
