“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:13-24




Live in peace with each other.

We encourage you, brothers and sisters,

to instruct those who are not living right,

cheer up those who are discouraged,

help the weak,

and be patient with everyone.


Make sure

that no one ever pays back one wrong with another wrong.


always try to do what is good for each other and everyone else.


Always be joyful.

Never stop praying.

Whatever happens, give thanks,

because it is God’s will in Christ Jesus that you do this.


Don’t put out the Spirit’s fire.

Don’t despise what God has revealed.

Instead, test everything.

Hold on to what is good.

Keep away from every kind of evil…


May the God who gives peace

make you holy in every way.

May He keep your whole being

— spirit, soul, and body — blameless

when our Lord Jesus Christ comes.

The One who calls you is faithful,

and He will do this


– 1 Thessalonians 5:13-24 (GW)






"Being children of God, how can we be sad?

Sadness is the end product of selfishness.

If we truly want to live for God,

we will never lack cheerfulness,

even when we discover our errors and wretchedness.


Cheerfulness finds its way into our life of prayer,

so much so that we cannot help singing for joy.

For we are in love,

and singing is a thing that lovers do"


– St. Josemaria Escriva



"A true Christian

is always ready to appear before God.

Because, if he is fighting to live as a man of Christ,

he is ready at every moment to fulfil his duty"


– St. Josemaria Escriva






Lord, how can I be sad, knowing that You love me so!

I too love You, Lord!
