Excerpt from St. Padre Pio's Letters

Remember that I am the enemy of useless desires, no less than I am of dangerous and bad desires. Because even though one's desires are good, nevertheless the desire is always defective in our regard, especially when it is combined with excessive haste. Because God does not expect this sort of good, but He wants us to practice another. 
- St. Padre Pio (Letters III,. p. 583)

A Prayer to Jesus Abandoned

"O Divine Jesus, lonely tonight in so many Tabernacles, without visitor or worshipper, I offer Thee my poor heart. May its every throb be an act of love for Thee. Thou art always watching beneath the Sacramental Veils; in Thy Love Thou dost never sleep and Thou art never weary of Thy vigil for sinners."
