"Being the Divine Physician, our Redeemer alone can heal us from our sins. If, full of hope, we continue to persevere in bringing to Him all the different aspects of our misery, then one day the moment will arrive when He will bend over us in response to our trustful begging for healing, finally uniting with us completely." (God Alone Suffices, pg.71)
"It is unusual that, regarding the necessity to lower one's self, Christ emphasizes the one whom He Himself called great: "...among those born of women, no one is greater than John" (Lk 7:28). The entire greatness of this prophet was, however, that he removed himself; he was willing to cast himself into the shadows and be forgotten."
(Behold I Stand at the Door and Knock, pg. 104)
"If you want to gain Everything, if you desire to be united with God, then you have to consent to lose everything else that is not God. You will lose only illusions and your dreams of greatness that your pride conjures up. By agreeing to lose these illusions, you will gain God Himself." (Open Wide the Door to Christ, pg. 192)
"The Lord wants you to await meeting with Him all the time - in every moment. After all, He is always standing at your door and knocking. He wants to meet with you during the day and during the night, in joy and in sorrow, in extraordinary events and in the monotonous rhythm of daily life."
(Behold I Stand at the Door and Knock, pg. 112)
“Dear children! Today I call you to pray and fast for my intentions, because Satan wants to destroy my plan. Here I began with this parish and invited the entire world. Many have responded, but there is an enormous number of those who do not want to hear or accept my call. Therefore, you who have said ‘yes’, be strong and resolute. Thank you for having responded to my call.
"Are you the vigilant servant who hears the Lord's knocking? Do you run to the door to open it for Him? The servant who is vigilant not only has girded loins in order to be ready to fulfill the Lord's indications, but also a lighted torch, which is the Light of Truth. Openness to God means, above all, remaining in truth."
(Behold I Stand at the Door and Knock, pg. 113)
"In front of others, we appear to be righteous because the events of our lives have not yet been strong enough to awaken our sleeping tendencies. Therefore, it has not even crossed our minds that inside we are filled with hypocrisy and evildoing."
(Behold I Stand at the Door and Knock, pg. 8)
Seeing Hypocrisy is easy when we are focused on other people The moment that you look at yourself it becomes another thing all together.

"Mary does not seek herself in anything. She serves with her whole life even if the Mother of the Son of God is called to be the Queen of all creatures."
