"We must deserve the graces of the Holy Spirit."
"What our Lady tells us is that Jesus is God, that only He, He and only He, is the one who grants all graces."
"We must be tolerant and grateful to our own, and often recognize the effort they make to overcome their habits, vices, which are difficult to overcome and many fail to overcome them. Still, we have to recognize the effort that is made . "
"This is the reason for a community, yes, to endure, but also to correct the flaws we have, so our qualities and the expression of God in all senses may shine in our souls."
"Spiritual sharing is the conscience of the true humble ones."
“People must have a young spirit, despite all the hardship that could take place. One always has to say this; “What else can I do for you?”
"We all are equal. We all have a capacity: You have your nice things, the other one does too, the other one, the other one; we all do. Do not compare yourselves with each other. Each person has his own personality."
"To learn how to live among brothers, this is difficult! Not everyone knows how to live beside someone else, but we have to learn how to live, to share. Let us share!"
"If we do not know how to share with the people we are lost in the horizon. But if we do know how to share we will be able to win many hearts, many souls, and many people with good disposition."
Let us never give an opinion of the way this person is, the way the other person is. You have to keep this to yourself. I tell you this, because sometimes we are mistaken, and we must avoid that.May there never be clashes among you. Be very humble and simple among your brothers. You all have a grace. We all do. God, our Lord, knows to whom to give them [these special graces] and what we are good for."
"Love your brother, help him with his burden. It is not necessary for me to ask you to do something. Whenever you see a person grieving, sorrowful, or in need, observe him. If you see that he is in need of something that you can help them with, help him. Do not leave him empty-handed with a sad heart."
"The community we have is the community God has given us in life, and we must respect it, and love it, so we can form a firm group, full of love, trusting that the Lord is giving us his hand so we can give ours to each other too."
"The little devil exists – Oh Most Holy Mother of God! – who is always trying to get hold of someone, because this is the way he works. He grabs someone in the community and makes him go out of control. This is why we have to be attentive, and follow the steps people make. We cannot let them go: “Look, I will be in charge of this.” No, I will not let anyone run the place. You can give them an assignment: You are going to help me with this. But you have to be very vigilant."
"This is how we all have to live an authentic Christian life: Not with words, not what great things. No! God does not ask us to make great sacrifices or great things, He asks for the little things in life."
"When someone asks you to do something in life, do not say: “No.” On the contrary, comfort him, console him, express your ideas with simpleness, and open your heart so he can truly feel happy that someone understands him."
"We have our pros and cons but we understand each other. And the point is to understand each other, hold hands, try to renovate, and, in short, improve our inner life."
"How beautiful it is to have sincere and honest friends, worthy of the love we have of them! Thus we cannot be dishonest ever; we have to have only one path, the path that leads to the Lord, in order to correct our weaknesses and help each other."
"May God bless us all, may He strengthen us, and especially unite us. Disagreements, criticism, let us leave all that behind."
"When someone comforts us when we are sad, we feel within the joy of the innocent child who only knows how to look at and smile at the person who holds his hand and smiles at him."
"People have to learn how to acquire things with sacrifice. People must know the value of each thing, that it is not so easy to acquire it. These are details families must know because otherwise you may go crazy. “I want this, I want that.” Everyone begins to ask for things . . . . Parents, never do this." (12/13/16)
"If a very difficult time comes leave it all behind. Remember this." (12/14/16)
"To share is splendid and life-giving, because all hearts open to answer to each other by means of love." (12/15/16)
"In sharing we attain the light of the Holy Spirit, understanding each other like brothers, and we catch a glimpse of the grace of the Holy Spirit among us; all this, because we form a great family, the family of God. " (12/16/16)
"We come to know a person when we live with that person." (12/17/16)
"Do not do what you do not wish others
to do to you." (12/18/16)
