The more you put into the Church, the more you get out of her.
The more you are involved in the Church, the more you understand her.
The more you understand the Church, the more you thank God that you belong to her.
Maria Von Trapp
That they may bring forth in me the fruits of holiness
Rather than the fruits of sin.
Let me use disappointments as material for patience;
Let me use success as material for thankfulness;
Let me use suspense as material for perseverance;
Let me use danger as material for courage;
Let me use reproach as material for long suffering;
Let me use praise as material for humility;
Let me use pleasure as material for temperance;
Let me use pain as material for endurance.
