"True sanctity consists in
renouncing oneself from morning to night,
in being a living sacrifice,
in constantly putting aside the human self,
in allowing God to work in and with you as He pleases,
to receive the graces He sends you with profound humility,
recognizing yourself quite unworthy of them,
to live as constantly as possible in the Divine Presence,
to perform all your actions under the eye of God,
wanting Him only to be the witness of your efforts and your only reward.
This is the sanctity wished for and demanded by Jesus
of all those who desire to be His only and to live His life.
All the rest is pure illusion."
~ Sr. M.G. from An Unpublished Manuscript on Purgatory ~
