“Try to fill your Soul with Christ…”

“Try to fill your Soul with Christ so as not to have it empty. Your Soul is like a cistern full of water. If you channel the water to the flowers, that is, to the virtues, you will experience true joy and all the thorns of evil will wither away. But if you channel the water to the weeds, these will grow and choke you and all the flowers will wither.”

“When people are empty of Christ, a thousand and one other things come and fill them up: jealousies, hatreds, boredom, melancholy, resentment, a worldly outlook, worldly pleasures. Try to fill your Soul with Christ so that it’s not empty.”

“When there is love for Christ, loneliness disappears.”
