Discouragement

A small h/t to Abbey Roads for posting some saintly wisdom on discouragement which I shall pass on to you here.

“Don’t give in to discouragement……. If you are discouraged it is a sign of pride because it shows you trust in your own powers. Never bother about people’s opinions. Be obedient to truth. For with humble obedience, you will never be disturbed.”

 Teresa of Calcutta

“We must put aside all judgment of our own, and keep the mind ever ready and prompt to obey in all things the true Spouse of Christ our Lord, our holy Mother, the hierarchical Church.”

Ignatius of Loyola

“What seems to me white, I will believe black if the hierarchical Church so defines.”

Ignatius of Loyola

“Discouragement is not from God.”

Ignatius of Loyola
