Biblical quotes that every catholic should read: Jeremiah

God is stronger in His power of atraction than any disorder, depression or anguish that we could suffer. For those who love the Lord, the fire never puts out although we try to smother it.
This is what the prophet says:

You duped me, O LORD, and I let myself be duped; 
you were too strong for me, and you triumphed. 
All the day I am an object of laughter; 
everyone mocks me.

Whenever I speak, I must cry out, violence and outrage is my message; 
The word of the LORD has brought me derision and reproach all the day.

I say to myself, I will not mention him, 
I will speak in his name no more. 
But then it becomes like fire burning in my heart, imprisoned in my bones; 
I grow weary holding it in, 
I cannot endure it.
Jeremiah 20:7-9
