Leave the past to the mercy of God,

the present to the love of God,

and the future to the providence of God.

Augustine

It is for God to grant His grace.

Your task is to accept that grace and guard it.

Cyril of Jerusalem

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

To receive grace

we need only to love its Donor.

Mathias Scheeben

No Christian escapes a taste of the wilderness

on the way to the Promised Land.

Evelyn Underhill

Heaven-gates are not so highly arch’d

As princes’ palaces; they that enter there

Must go upon their knees.

John Webster
