FROM THE WRITINGS OF ST. IGNATIUS


ON THE HOLY COMMUNION. 

One of the most admirable effects of Holy Communion is to preserve souls from falling, and to help those who fall from weakness to rise again; therefore it is much more profitable frequently to approach this Divine Sacrament with love, respect, and confidence, than to keep back from an excess of fear and cowardice. 

BLESSING THROUGH THE HANDS OF MARY. 

May our Lady deign to intercede for us sinners with her Divine Son and Lord, and to obtain from Him a blessing on our pains and trials.

PATIENCE IN SUFFERINGS. 

If God causes you to suffer much, it is a sign that He has great designs for you, and that He certainly intends to make you a saint. And if you wish to become a great saint, entreat Him yourself to give you much opportunity for suffering; for there is no wood better to kindle the fire of holy love than the wood of the cross, which Christ used for his own great sacrifice of boundless charity. 

THE REWARDS OF HEAVEN. 

A precious crown is reserved in heaven for those who put into their actions all the diligence of which they are capable, for it is not enough to do good, we must do it well. 

SOULS DETACHED FROM EARTH. 

God takes special care to detach those whom He loves with special predilection from the passing pleasures of this world, by sending them desires after heavenly bliss, and by the sorrows and bitterness of the present life. 

EVILS OF IDLENESS. 

Idleness begets a life of discontentedness, it develops self-love, which is the cause of all our miseries, and renders us unworthy to receive the favors of Divine love. 

IMPORTANCE OF THE RELIGIOUS TRAINING OF YOUTH. 

If a single child profits by my instructions, my trouble and my time will seem to me well spent. 

TRUTH. 

Truth always shines with the brightness which belongs to it, while falsehood is wrapped in darkness; to dispel this darkness it is enough to put falsehood in the presence of truth.
