Saint Quote: Saint Ambrose of Milan

Saint Ambrose of Milan.jpg


"The law of Thy mouth, O Lord, is good unto me, I keep Thy commandments.'' Thou hast Thyself said that Thou art one with the Father. Because Peter believed this, he received the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and without anxiety for himself forgave sins. Judas, because he believed not this, strangled himself with the cord of his own wickedness. O the hard stones of unbelieving words! O the unseemly cord of the betrayer, and the still more hideous purchase-money of the Jews! O hateful money wherewith either the just is bought for death, or sold ! Joseph was sold, Jesus Christ was bought, the one to slavery, the Other to death. O detestable inheritance, O deadly sale, which either sells a brother to suffering or sets a price on the Lord to destroy Him, the Purchaser of the salvation of all.


-- Saint Ambrose of Milan from "On the Holy Spirit, Book III"



Saint Quote: Saint Thomas More

The covetous claim to be Christian, yet they have no trust in Christ. For they are always afraid of want in the time to come, no matter how much they have.

Saint Quote: Saint Melito of Sardis

Saint Melito of Sardis.jpg


God who is from God; the Son who is from the Father; Jesus Christ the King for evermore...He that bore up the earth was borne up on a tree. The Lord was subjected to ignominy with naked body--God put to death, the King of Israel slain!


-- Saint Melito of Sardis


Saint Quote: Saint Andrew of Crete

Saint Andrew of Crete.jpg


Let us go together to meet Christ on the Mount of Olives. Today he returns from Bethany and proceeds of his own free will toward his holy and blessed passion, to consummate the mystery of our salvation. He who came down from heaven to raise us from the depths of sin, to raise us with himself, we are told in Scripture, above every sovereignty, authority and power, and every other name that can be named, now comes of his own free will to make his journey to Jerusalem. He comes without pomp or ostentation. As the psalmist says: He will not dispute or raise his voice to make it heard in the streets. He will be meek and humble, and he will make his entry in simplicity.


-- Saint Andrew of Crete

Saint Quote: Saint Giuseppe Moscati

Saint Giuseppe Moscati.jpg


Remember, that you must treat not only bodies, but also souls, with counsel that appeals to their minds and hearts rather than with cold prescriptions to be sent in to the pharmacist.

-- Saint Giuseppe Moscati from a letter to one of his students


Note: Saint Giuseppe Moscati was the first modern doctor to be canonized.
