Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
"... The day has barely gotten underway, Lord,
and already I am scattered.
Already I've avoided a chore,
responded with a note of impatience,
sought to be noticed,
made an excuse,
I am a tumbleweed
tossed about by the gusts of my whims.
Oh gather me!
Hold me in the stillness of your presence,
Write your name in my heart...." .... to this page ...
I have often raised my hand in the silence of the night and in my solitary cell, blessing you all and presenting you to Jesus and to our father, St. Francis of Assisi.
-St. Pio of Pietrelcina
"Unite yourself to my prayers."
- Padre Pio
"Pray, pray to the Lord with me, because the whole world needs prayer. And every day, when your heart especially feels the loneliness of life, pray. Pray to the Lord, because even God needs our prayers.
