“A saint is happy, joyous, and free. Saints are also
steeped in the truth. This kind of holy, happy life is acquired through deep conversion, deep prayer, and deep study. The results of this formation are an increased generosity and a spontaneous desire to share our faith with others.” (Archbishop Carlson-Partakers of the Divine Nature)
"But if a person, whether a layperson, priest or sister, goes to confession and converts, the Lord forgives. And when the Lord forgives, he forgets. This is important," Pope Francis told reporters July 28, 2014.
“This journey of formation is never-ending, and it begins
where we are. A lifetime of learning — true discipleship
— will enrich our lives and enable us to enrich others’
lives as well.” (Archbishop Carlson-Partakers of the Divine Nature)
“Evangelization is the voice of the Lord speaking in and through those He
has imbued with his own Spirit. We must all aspire to be able to say with
St. Paul, “I live, no longer I, but Christ lives in me.”” (Archbishop Carlson-Partakers of the Divine Nature)
"So whoever is in Christ is a new creation: the old things have passed away; behold, new things have come."
-2 Corinthians 5:17
