Recourse to the Holy Cross

holy cross

“Let us often have recorse to the holy cross, embracing it in our hearts.  Let us rest in the shade of this holy tree!  It is impossible that anything can hurt us if we keep to our resolution to belong totally to God.  Do not get all upset, therefore, when difficulties come your way.  Laugh in your enemy’s face; you are in the arms of the Almighty.  Therefore, let God be your strength and your love.”

~St. Francis de Sales (Letters 638; O. IX, p. 382)
