"The more one mortifies his natural inclinations,
the more he renders himself capable of receiving
divine inspirations and of progressing in virtue."
St. Francis de Sales
BE FORGED BY IT.
BE GALVANIZED BY IT.
DO WHAT MAKES YOU
WHETHER IT'S PHYSICALLY,
EMOTIONALLY, MENTALLY OR SPIRITUALLY. WELCOME IT. BE TRANSFORMED BY IT.
I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH HIM WHO STRENGTHENS ME
