Words of Hope - Totus2us

Fr Dominic Faure: "St Catherine of Siena doesn’t hesitate to say that what is best in our life of charity on earth is the desire and you remember how St Therese was really a woman of incredible desires, she desired to be everything, And of course a life without desire is very bland, a life without desire is very poor, while people who have changed the world have been people who have huge desires, those who have really made a difference were people with a great desire, at any level. And of course the greater the desires the more we need to hope, because it would be foolish to desire something that you know you will not be able to reach. So if indeed we have been created for this fullness - to know God and to see Him as He is - knowing that by ourselves we are incapable of doing it, if God has put in each one of us, in our intelligence, in our heart, therefore the best in us which is our spirit, by nature and by grace this unquenchable desire to stay with Him and see Him face to face, then He needs to give us what will sustain us in hope, otherwise we would fall in despair. … And there’s this joy of desiring in hope and even more when we recognise that God responds to our desires by allowing us to anticipate what He wants to give us. Or, said otherwise, He would not give us the desire unless He was already planning on giving us what we desire." For much more, visit Totus2us - dedicated to Our Lady, it was inspired by our holy fathers St John Paul II and Papa Benedict XVI. Totus Tuus (All Yours) was JPII's motto to Mary. Our Lady is also everything to us - Totus2us.
