Quote/s of he Day – 4 July
“I urge you with all the strength of my soul
to approach the Eucharistic Table as often as possible.
Feed on this Bread of the Angels, from which you will draw,
the strength to fight inner struggles.”
“To the Heights”
Blessed Pier Giorgio’s famous motto, “Verso l’alto,” Italian for “To the heights,” meant reaching for God as well as the mountain peaks. His regular habit was to attend Mass before heading to the mountains and of visiting the Blessed Sacrament upon his return. He loved the Eucharist. He would often spend whole nights in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
“You ask me whether I am in good spirits.
How could I not be so?
As long as Faith gives me strength, I will always be joyful.
Sadness ought to be banished from Catholic souls…
the purpose for which we have been created shows us the path;
even if strewn with many thorns, it is not a sad path.
It is joyful even in the face of sorrow.”
Bl Pier Giorgio Frassati
