Quotes by Charles de Foucauld
Our Lady of Perpetual Help
In a time of great sorrow, not knowing where to take refuge, fearing to be misled by the evil one, I remembered the heart of the Mother of Perpetual Help, and I placed myself in her care, like her child, like her property. I begged her, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, to carry me, as she carried Jesus when he was a child, and to make me become, not what I would like to become, but what she herself would like for the greatest glory of her Son, according to his will, according to what she read in his heart.
Cry the Gospel
We must love people as Jesus loved them
The evangelisation that I am called to live
The evangelisation that I am called to live is not through the word but through the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, the offering of the sacrifice of the Mass. It is through prayer and penance and the practice of the Gospel virtues - love, fraternal and universal love, sharing even my last mouthful of bread with every poor person, with every visitor, every stranger, and welcoming each person as a beloved brother or sister.
The universal brother
God came to us and lived among us
In order to save us, God came to us and lived among us, from the Annunciation to the Ascension, in a close and familiar way. God continues to come to us and to live with us in a close and familiar way, each day and at every hour, in the holy Eucharist. So we too must go and live among our brothers and sisters in a close and familiar way.
It is love that should recollect you in me
Always see Jesus in every person
How good I must be towards others
Embrace all humanity
