Pope Saint Gregory the Great

We should reflect on Mary Magdalen’s attitude and the great love she felt for Christ, for though the disciples had left the tomb, she remained … And so it happened that the woman who stayed behind to seek Christ was the only one to see him. For perseverance is essential to any good deed, as the voice of truth tells us: ‘Whoever perseveres to the end will be saved.’

San Ignacio de Loyola

Después que hayas tomado una decisión agradable a Dios, el Demonio tratará de que lo pienses dos veces. Intensifica tu tiempo de oración, meditación y buenas obras. Porque, si las tentaciones de Satanás hacen que se incrementen tus esfuerzos para crecer en santidad, tendrá un incentivo para dejarte solo.

Saint Ignatius of Loyola

After you have made a decision that is pleasing to God, the Devil may try to make you have second thoughts. Intensify your prayer time, meditation, and good deeds. For if Satan’s temptations merely cause you to increase your efforts to grow in holiness, he’ll have an incentive to leave you alone.

San Pedro Crisólogo

La dulzura le gana al enojo, la bondad extingue la furia… la paciencia es el azote de la impaciencia, las palabras suaves derrotan a la pelea y, la humildad, derriba al orgullo.

Saint Peter Chrysologus

Mildness overcomes anger, meekness extinguishes fury… patience is the scourge of impatience, gentle words vanquish quarrelsomeness, and humility prostrates pride.

Beato Papa Urbano II

Ustedes son llamados pastores; miren que no vayan a actuar como asalariados. Sean verdaderos pastores, con sus cayados siempre en sus manos. No se duerman sino que cuiden del rebaño que se les ha confiado. Porque, si por su descuido o negligencia un lobo se lleva alguna de sus ovejas, seguramente perderán su recompensa que está con Dios.

Blessed Pope Urban II

You are called shepherds; see that you do not act as hirelings. But be true shepherds, with your crooks always in your hands. Do not go to sleep, but guard on all sides the flock committed to you. For if through your carelessness or negligence a wolf carries away one of your sheep, you will surely lose the reward laid up for you with God.

Beata María Grazia Tarallo

Quiero ser santa, amando a Jesús en la Eucaristía, sufriendo con Cristo Crucificado y viendo a Cristo en mis hermanos y hermanas.
