Virtue Quote: St. Faustina

"How can one be pleasing to God when one is inflated with pride and self-love under the pretense of striving for God’s glory, while in fact one is seeking one’s own glory? When I see such a thing, it gives me very great pain." -St. Faustina

Virtue Quote: St. Faustina

"A soul does not benefit as it should from the sacrament of confession if it is not humble. Pride keeps it in darkness. The soul neither knows how, nor it is willing, to prove with precision the depths of its own misery. It puts on a mask and avoids everything that might bring it recovery." [...]

Virtue Quote: St. Faustina

"A disobedient soul will win no victory, even if the Lord Jesus Himself, in person, were to hear its confession. The most experienced confessor will be of no help whatsoever to such a soul.
