Josemaría Escrivá Obras

Holy Purity is the humility of the flesh! You asked the Lord for seven bolts on your heart. And I advised you to ask for seven bolts for your heart and eighty years of gravity as well, for your youth...

And be watchful, for a spark is much easier to extinguish than a fire. Take flight... for in this it is low cowardice to be “brave”; a roving eye... does not mean a lively spirit, but turns out to be a snare of satan.

Yet human diligence, with mortification, the cilice, disciplines and fasting are all worthless without you, my God!
