Knowing Jesus in our Midst

Knowing Jesus in our Midst
Saint Clare
     Our labor here is brief, but the reward is eternal.  Do not be disturbed by the clamor of the world which passes like a shadow.  Do not let the false delights of the deceptive world deceive you.
     Love Him totally Who gave Himself totally for your love.
     Our body is not made of iron.  Our strength is not that of stone.  Live and hope in the Lord, and let your service be according to reason.  Modify your holocaust with the salt of prudence.
     Melancholy is the poison of devotion.  When one is in tribulation, it is necessary to be more happy and more joyful because one is nearer to God.
     Close your eyes to the whisperings of hell and bravely oppose its onslaughts.
