Quote/s of the Day – 21 April
“God has promised pardon to him that repents
but he has not promised repentance to him that sins.”
“O supreme and unapproachable light!
O whole and blessed truth, how far You are from me,
who am so near to You!
How far removed You are from my vision,
though I am so near to Yours!
Everywhere You are wholly present
and I see You not.
In You I move and in You I have my being
and I cannot come to You.
You are within me
and about me
and I feel You not.”
“God often works more by the life of the illiterate
seeking the things that are God’s,
than by the ability of the learned
seeking the things that are their own.”
“For I do not seek to understand in order to believe
but I believe in order to understand.
For I believe this: unless I believe, I will not understand.”
“Remove grace, and you have nothing whereby to be saved.
Remove free will and you have nothing that could be saved.”
“A single Mass offered for oneself during life
may be worth more than a thousand celebrated
for the same intention after death.”
“No one will have any other desire in heaven
than what God wills;
and the desire of one will be the desire of all;
and the desire of all and of each one
will also be the desire of God.”
