Quote/s of the Day – 4 August
“You must accept your cross. If you bear it courageously, it will carry you to heaven.”
“Here is the rule for everyday life.
Do not do anything which you cannot offer to God.”
“The priest is not a priest for himself – he is for you.
After God, the priest is everything.”
“It is by battles against hell
and by resistance to temptations,
that we give God proofs of our love.”
“His look rests on you alone.”
“The sign of the cross
is the most terrible weapon
against the devil.
Thus the Church wishes not only,
that we have it continually
in front of our minds,
to recall to us
just what our souls are worth
and what they cost Jesus Christ
but also that we should make it
at every juncture ourselves:
when we go to bed,
when we awaken during the night,
when we get up,
when we begin any action,
and, above all,
when we are tempted.”
“The Devil writes down our sins –
our Guardian Angel all our merits.
Labour that the Guardian Angel’s book may be full
and the Devil’s empty.”
