Spiritual Quote of the Day (Alessandro Manzoni, on the Benefits of Offering Our Hearts to God)

“Let us offer our hearts, wretched and empty as they are, to God, that He may be pleased to fill them with that charity which amends the past, which ensures the future, which fears and trusts, weeps and rejoices in its knowledge; which becomes in every instance the virtue of which we stand in need.” Italian novelist Alessandro Manzoni (1785-1873), I Promessi Sposi (The Bethrothed) (1840)
