Quote/s of the Day – 12 August – The Memorial of St Jane Frances de Chantal (1572-1641)

“Hold your eyes on God and leave the doing to Him.
That is all the doing you have to worry about.”

hold your eyes on god - st jane de chantal

“We should go to prayer with deep humility
and an awareness of our nothingness.
We must invoke the help of the Holy Spirit
and that of our good angel
and then remain still in God’s presence,
full of faith, that He is more in us than we are in ourselves.”

st jane quote

“With God there is no need for long speeches.
In heaven the angels utter no other word than this: “HOLY.”
This is their entire prayer and in paradise they are occupied
with this single word as an act of homage,
to the single Word of God, who lives eternally….
In prayer, more is accomplished by listening than by talking.”

St Jane Frances de Chantal

with god there is no need for long speeches - st jane de chantal

“She was full of faith and yet all her life long,
she had been tormented by thoughts against it.
Nor did she once relax in the fidelity God asked of her.
And so I regard her as one of the holiest souls
I have ever met on this earth.”

St Vincent de Paul

she was full of faith and yet - st vincent de paul

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. This is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
