God, added to your nothingness, will change you – St Gaspar

Posted on February 17, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

“God, added to your nothingness, will change you
make you a totality of omnipotence.
To be sure, why did the Lord always select the weak,
the unlearned,
those despised in the eyes of the world
for his greatest undertakings,
if not to banish from our hearts every feeling of diffidence,
filling them with holy trust in his divine power?

Confortamini in domino, et in potentia virtutis eius!”

(St. Gaspar – Letter No. 62 to Countess Lucrezia Ginnasi, April 29, 1813)
