For Special Consideration

The TRUE HEART disciplines have a time of prayerful recollection upon waking in the morning and before going to bed at night.

For the duration of TRUE HEART, include at these times a simple prayer asking God for the grace to know and follow the vocation he is calling you to live.

No matter whether you are called to the lay or priestly state of life, you are certainly called to be a saint.

Pray with the quote from St. Ignatius Loyola that you have the grace not to resist God’s plans for your life, but by God’s grace, fulfill them completely so you can produce fruit that endures to eternity.

There are very few who realize what God would make of them if they abandoned themselves entirely to His hands, and let themselves be formed by His grace. A thick and shapeless tree trunk would never believe that it could become a statue, admired as a miracle of sculpture…and would never consent to submit itself to the chisel of the sculptor who, as St. Augustine says, sees by his genius what he can make of it. Many people who, we see, now scarcely live as Christians, do not understand that they could become saints, if they would let themselves be formed by the grace of God, if they did not ruin His plans by resisting the work which He wants to do.[1]
