Quote/s of the Day – 9 August – The Memorial of St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross
“Today I stood with you beneath the cross
And felt more clearly than I ever did
That you became our Mother only there.
But those whom you have chosen for companions
To stand with you around the eternal throne,
They must stand with you beneath the Cross,
And with the lifeblood of their bitter pains,
Must purchase heavenly glory for those souls
Whom God’s own Son entrusted to their care.”
St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross – Good Friday 1938
“Our love of neighbour is the measure of our love of God.
For Christians — and not only for them —
no one is a ‘stranger’.
The love of Christ knows no borders”
St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross
