There is more hunger in the world for love and appreciation in this world than for bread.

The success of love is in the loving - it is not in the result of loving. Of course it is natural in love to want the best for the other person, but whether it turns out that way or not does not determine the value of what we have done.

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

Jesus said love one another. He didn't say love the whole world.

It is impossible to walk rapidly and be unhappy.

It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.

It is a kingly act to assist the fallen.

I do not pray for success, I ask for faithfulness.

Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.

It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.

Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty, than the person who has nothing to eat.

Our life of poverty is as necessary as the work itself. Only in heaven will we see how much we owe to the poor for helping us to love God better because of them.

I try to give to the poor people for love what the rich could get for money. No, I wouldn't touch a leper for a thousand pounds, yet I willingly cure him for the love of God.

There must be a reason why some people can afford to live well. They must have worked for it. I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things that we could use.

Give your hands to serve and your hearts to love.

If we have no peace it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.

We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared, for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.

There is always the danger that we may just do the work for the sake of the work. This is where the respect, and the love, and the devotion come in - that we do it to God, to Christ, and that's why we try to do it as beautifully as possible.

One of the greatest diseases is to be nobody to anybody.

I want you to be concerned about your next door neighbor. Do you know your next door neighbor?
