Father R. Garrigou-Lagrange, O.P.

"In those persons who we are not naturally attracted to we have to see souls that have been saved by the Blood of Christ, souls that belong to the Mystical Body of Christ, souls which might even be closer to His Sacred Heart than our own. It often happens that we spend many years alongside very beautiful souls without our ever noticing it."

(From The Three Ages of the Interior Life

Caryll Houselander 

"You see, God's will for you is to serve Him, in His way, as He chooses, now. it is only a want of humility to think of extreme vocations, like being a nun or a nurse, while you try to bypass your present obvious vocation, which is to restore your will to God's, so that you may become what He wants you to be, and may be able to use the faculties He has given to you for His service."

(From The Letters of Caryll Houselander: Her Spiritual Legacy

Blessed Pope Paul VI

"The preacher of the Gospel will therefore be a person who, even at the price of personal renunciation and suffering, always seeks the truth that he must transmit to others. He never betrays or hides truth out of a desire to please men, in order to astonish or shock, nor for the sake of originality or a desire to make an impression."

(From Apostolic Exhortation, Evangeli nuntiandi, December 8, 1975)
