is wealth in heaven that lasts for all of eternity.
Better than the costliest perfume that coats the body
is the perfumed scent of a clean and pure soul.
Better than beauty that decays and turns to dust
is the grandeur of God overflowing and illuminating one's countenance.
And so I pray: May God grant me the grace not to settle for less.
|Our Lady of Lourdes|
