"My mission is not to indicate to the world the material punishments
which will certainly happen if the world does not pray and do penance beforehand. Bo! My mission is to indicate to everyone
the immediate danger we are in of losing our souls for all eternity if we remain obstinate in sin."
- Sister Lucia of Fatima
"The Holy Spirit is fire; whoever is filled with the Holy Spirit
ought to inflame others."

but it means nothing if we do not preserve."

"And whence comes our pride if
not from our forgetfulness of the Eucharist - that pride which finds cause for self-exaltation in the graces received, in
the gifts of God, in our circle of holy and virtuous friends, or inthe influence we perhaps exercise on souls? Are you affected
with this pride when you communicate, when you feel within you the presence of Jesus, Who says to you, 'What! You exalt yourselves
with the dignities and the graces I have given you, with the privileged love I bear you! But see, I annihilate Myself. Do
at least as I do.'"
Peter Julian Eymard
faith is worthy of praise only when our deeds do not contradict the words we say."
- Saint Gregory the Great
"As long as I know there are people in the world who do not love God, I can not rest."
- Saint Francis Xaiver
"...[W]hatever man may have, even though he main gain the entire
world, he is still poor and wretched if he want God, Who alone can fill up the bosom of his soul; and, on the other hand,
he who possesses God, he has everything."
"The greatest of all evils is
not to be tempted, because there are then grounds for believing that the devil looks upon us as his property.."
John Marie Vianney
you are what you should be, you will set the whole world on fire."
Catherine of Siena
"You must all stand fast in the faith and love one another. And do not be weakened by what we have gone
"For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself
will be exalted."
"In the presence of a significant life, we
behold not only our own life as it is but possibilities and potential for the future."
"A man who
governs his passions is master of the world. We must either rule them, or be ruled by them. It is better to be the hammer
than the anvil."
- Saint Dominic
"...There can be no more effective way to pray for this spiritual growth than for the Church, itself Christ's body,
to make the offering of his body and blood in the sacramental form of bread and wine. For the cup we drink is a participation
in the blood we break is a participation in the body of Christ..."
