“The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.”
“Do we know our poor people? Do we know the poor in our house, in our family? Perhaps they are not hungry for a piece of bread. Perhaps our children, husband, wife, are not hungry, or naked, or dispossessed, but are you sure there is no one there who feels unwanted, deprived of affection?”
“It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.”
“What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.”
“There is a light in this world, a healing spirit more powerful than any darkness we may encounter. We sometimes lose sight of this force when there is suffering, too much pain. Then suddenly, the spirit will emerge through the lives of ordinary people who hear a call and answer in extraordinary ways.”
“Love to be real, it must cost—it must hurt—it must empty us of self.”
“Suffering is nothing by itself. But suffering shared with the passion of Christ is a wonderful gift, the most beautiful gift, a token of love.”
“Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.”
“Love is not patronizing and charity isn’t about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same — with charity you give love, so don’t just give money but reach out your hand instead.”
“When you know how much God is in love with you then you can only live your life radiating that love.”
“Give yourself fully to God. He will use you to accomplish great things on the condition that you believe much more in his love than in your weakness.”
“When you have nothing left but God,you have more than enough to start over again.”
