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

Saint Quote: Saint John of Sahagun

". . . a preacher must be prepared in his soul to speak the truth, both in denouncing and correcting shortcomings and in praising virtue, to such a point that he is willing in that cause even to face death."

--Saint John of Sahagun (his response to a Duke's complaint that not only did the Saint point out the sins of the common people, he also pointed out those of the nobility as well.)
