The Eucharist is not a prize for the perfect but a powerful medicine and nourishment for the weak.
Head mirrors and ice cream. Found sisters in MedSchool. 💛
Even histology has a heart. 😍😜 HVD! 💕
Pray as if it’s up to God, work as if it’s up to you.
I’ve always liked how these authors try to make Pathology interesting. Oh kidneys, you still fascinate me though you’re giving me a hard time. Infinite artfulness, indeed. :P
Love like there’s no tomorrow, and if tomorrow comes, love again.
"You are going through a critical stage. You feel a certain vague fear and find it difficult to adapt your plan of life. Your work seems to weigh you down, since twenty-four hours are not enough to do everything you ought to each day. Have you tried following the Apostle’s advice: "let all things be done decently and according to order”? That means, in the presence of God, with Him, through Him, and only for Him. (Furrow, 512)
How shall I manage, you seem to ask, to act always in a spirit that leads me to finish all my professional work perfectly? The answer comes not from me, but from St Paul: ‘Work courageously, be strong. And let everything you do be done in a spirit of charity’ . Do everything for Love’s sake and do it freely. Never give way to fear or routine. Serve God Our Father.
Having put them very much to the test, I am very fond of repeating these artless but very expressive verses:
My life consists in loving,
And if with loving I’m familiar,
‘Tis because I’ve sorrowed much;
For there’s no finer lover,
Than one who’s suffered much.*
Go about your professional duties for Love’s sake. Do everything for the sake of Love and (precisely because you are in love, even though you may taste the bitterness of misunderstanding, of injustice, of ingratitude and even of failure in men’s eyes) you will see the result in the wonders that your work produces — rich, abundant fruit, the promise of eternity!”
Bethlehem means ‘house of bread’. How apt that Jesus, the Bread of Life, would be born in Bethlehem (house of bread), offer himself as living sacrifice for us and be present in the Mass, within the Holy Eucharist
Happy new year! Happy birthday, Daddy! We love you. <3
