SOUL – the spiritual part of a person that is believed to give life to the body and in many religions is believed to live forever
Your soul – that invisible and eternal part of you – is the part that connects you with God. It’s what makes you different than all other life forms on the planet: every human has a soul. Your soul is the real you. That’s why Jesus asked, “Is anything worth more than your soul?”
Scripture: Psalm 42:11
“Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.”
“Try to keep your soul always in peace and quiet, always ready for whatever our Lord may wish to work in you. It is certainly a higher virtue of the soul, and a greater grace, to be able to enjoy the Lord in different times and different places than in only one.”
— Saint Ignatius
