For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting. -- Saint John the Apostle

Pope Saint Gregory the Great Quote



A weak minded person is frequently diverted toward pursuing exterior happiness when the breath of popular favor accompanies his good actions. So he gives up his own personal choices, prefering to remain at the mercy of whatever he hears from others. Thus, he rejoices not so much to become but to be called blessed. Eager for praise, he gives up what he had begun to be; and so he is severed from God by the very means by which he appeared to be commendable in God.

-- Pope Saint Gregory the Great




Saint Teresa of Avila Quote



It is by humility that the Lord allows Himself to be conquered, so that He will do all we ask of Him.

-- Saint Teresa of Avila
