Excerpts from my book. . .
It is consoling to realize that people with whom we had dealings a short time ago are now contemplating the face of God. We continue to be united to them by profound friendship and affection through the Communion of Saints. They lend us assistance from Heaven and we remember them with joy and seek their intercession as well.
Francis Fernandez, In Conversation with God
To love God and serve him it is not necessary to do extraordinary things. Of every man without exception Christ asks he ‘be perfect as his Father in heaven is perfect’ (Matt 5:48). For the great majority of men, to be a saint means sanctifying our work, sanctifying ourselves in our work and sanctifying others through all the circumstances of that work. in this way, we find God on all the pathways of our life.
