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 Anthony of Padua

These symbolize (Proverbs 30:14) the greedy and usurers whose teeth are swords and knifes which they use to devour the poor and steal their meager possessions. All of them are children of this world who consider the children of light to be stupid and believe themselves to be the prudent ones. Their prudence is their death.

--Saint Anthony of Padua

Saint Quote: Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha

I am not my own; I have given myself to Jesus. He must be my only love. The state of helpless poverty that may befall me if I do not marry does not frighten me. All I need is a little food and a few pieces of clothing. With the work of my hands I shall always earn what is necessary and what is left over I'll give to my relatives and to the poor. If I should become sick and unable to work, then I shall be like the Lord on the cross. He will have mercy on me and help me, I am sure.

-- Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha

--Saint Peter of Alcantara

Saint Quote: St. Vincent de Paul

However great the work that God may achieve by an individual, he must not indulge in self-satisfaction. He ought rather to be all the more humbled, seeing himself merely as a tool which God has made use of.

-- St Vincent de Paul

Saint Quote: Saint Maximilian Kolbe

The most deadly poison of our times is indifference. And this happens, although the praise of God should know no limits. Let us strive, therefore, to praise Him to the greatest extent of our powers.
--Saint Maximilian Kolbe

Saint Quote: Saint Peter Julian Eymund

We believe in the love of God for us. To believe in love is everything. It is not enough to believe in the Truth. We must believe in Love and Love is our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. That is the faith that makes our Lord loved. Ask for this pure and simple faith in the Eucharist. Men will teach you; but only Jesus will give you the grace to believe in Him. You have the Eucharist. What more do you want?

--Saint Peter Julian Eymund

Saint Quote: Saint Ephraem of Syria

Virtues are formed by prayer. Prayer preserves temperance. Prayer suppresses anger. Prayer prevents emotions of pride and envy. Prayer draws into the soul the Holy Spirit, and raises man to Heaven.
--Saint Ephraem of Syria

Saint Quote: Saint Pope Gregory the Great

The proof of love is in the works. Where love exists, it works great things. But when it ceases to act, it ceases to exist.
--Saint Gregory the Great

Saint Quote: Saint Cyril of Alexandria

Who can put Mary’s high honour into words? She is both mother and virgin. I am overwhelmed by the wonder of this miracle. Of course no one could be prevented from living in the house he had built for himself, yet who would invite mockery by asking his own servant to become his mother? Behold then the joy of the whole universe. Let the union of God and man in the Son of the Virgin Mary fill us with awe and adoration.

-- Saint Cyril of Alexandria

Saint Quote: Saint Cyril of Jerusalem

Our actions have a tongue of their own; they have an eloquence of their own, even when the tongue is silent. For deeds prove the lover more than words.

-- St. Cyril of Jerusalem

Saint Quote: Saint John Vianney

Listen to me for one moment and you will see that only the service of God will console us and make us happy in the midst of all the miseries of life. To accomplish it, you do not need to leave either your belongings, or your parents, or even your friends, unless they are leading you to sin. You have no need to go and spend the rest of your lives in the desert to weep there for your sins. If that were necessary for us, indeed, we should be very happy to have such a remedy for our ills. But no, a father and a mother of a family can serve God by living with their children and bringing them up in a Christian way. A servant can very easily serve God and his master, with nothing to stop him. No, my dear bretheren, The way of life that means serving God changes nothing in all that we have to do. On the contrary, we simply do better all the things we must do!

-- St. John Vianney

Saint Quote: Saint John of the Cross

In detachment, the spirit finds quiet and repose for coveting nothing. Nothing wearies it by elation, and nothing oppresses it by dejection, because it stands in the center of its own humility.

-- St. John of the Cross

Saint Quote: Saint Josemaría Escriva de Balaguer

A man who fails to love the Mass fails to love Christ. We must make an effort to "live" the Mass with calm and serenity, with devotion and affection. And this is why I have always suspected that those who want the Mass to be over with quickly show, with this insensitive attitude, that they have not yet realized what the sacrifice of the altar means.

-- St. Josemaría Escriva de Balaguer

Saint Teresa of the Andes

He leaves His angels and millions of people, to come into your soul, to consummate in you the most intimate union, to transform you into God, to nourish in you the life of grace with which you will attain heaven.

Saint Teresa of the Andes

Blessed Titus Brandsma

"He who wants to win the world for Christ must have the courage to come in conflict with it."
Blessed Titus Brandsma

Saint Quote: Saint Alphonsus Liguori

If you commit any sin, repent of it at once and resolve to amend. If it is a grievous sin, confess it as soon as possible.

-- St. Alphonsus Liguori

Saint Quote: Saint Isidore of Seville

Heresy is from the Greek word meaning 'choice'.... But we are not permitted to believe whatever we choose, nor to choose whatever someone else has believed. We have the Apostles of God as authorities, who did not...choose what they would believe but faithfully transmitted the teachings of Christ. So, even if an angel from heaven should preach otherwise, he shall be called anathema.

--Saint Isidore of Seville

Monday, August 8, 2005

Saint Quote: Saint John Baptist de la Salle

We should have frequent recourse to prayer, and persevere a long time in it. God wishes to be solicited. He is not weary of hearing us. The treasure of His graces is infinite. We can do nothing more pleasing to him than to beg incessantly that He bestow them upon us.

-- St. John Baptist de la Salle

Saint Quote: Saint Augustine of Hippo

God bestows more consideration on the purity of the intention with which our actions are performed than on the actions themselves.

-- St. Augustine

Saturday, August 6, 2005

St. Therese of Lisieux

Believe me, the writing of pious books, the composing of the most sublime poetry; all that does not equal the smallest act of self-denial.

St. Therese of Lisieux

Friday, August 5, 2005

Saint Quote: Saint Anselm

Mary was raised to the dignity of Mother of God rather for sinners than for the just, since Jesus Christ declares that he came to call not the just, but sinners.

-- St. Anselm

Thursday, August 4, 2005

Saint John Vianney

"When you think of going to mass on working days, it is an impulse of the grace that God willed to grant you. FOLLOW IT." He did not say ignore it! He also said: "A saint has told us that one day at Mass he saw Jesus Christ with His hands full of gifts, looking for souls to whom He might give them." But no one was there.

--St. John Vianney

Saint Quote: Saint Padre Pio of Pietrelcina

Stop entertaining those vain fears. Remember it is not feeling which constitutes guilt but the consent to such feelings. Only the free will is capable of good or evil. But when the will sighs under the trial of the tempter and does not will what is presented to it, there is not only no fault but there is virtue.

-- Saint Pio of Pietrelcina

Tuesday, August 2, 2005

Saint Quote: Saint John Chrysostom

If we have obtained the grace of God, none shall prevail against us, but we shall be stronger than all who oppose us.

-- St John Chrysostom

Saint Quote: Saint Francis de Sales

[God] does not want each person to keep all the counsels, but only those appropriate to the diversity of persons, times, opportunities, and strengths, as charity requires; for it is charity, as queen of all virtues, all commandments, all counsels, and, in short, of all laws and all Christian actions that gives to all of them their rank, order, time, and value.

-- St Francis de Sales

Saint Quote: St. Camillus de Lellis

Think well. Speak well. Do well. These three things, through the mercy of God, will make a man go to Heaven.

-- St. Camillus de Lellis
