Saint Louis de Montfort

What, then, does God look upon with pleasure and delight? It is the man who is fighting for Him against riches, against the world, hell and himself, the man who is cheerfully carrying his cross.

Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen

Woe to me if I should prove myself but a halfhearted soldier in the service of my thorn crowned Captain

Saint Anselm of Canterbury

Faith seeks understanding. I do not seek to understand in order to believe, but I believe in order to understand. For I believe this: unless I believe, I will not understand.

Saint Zeno of Verona

Job received back his health and his riches; and the Lord, rising, did not only regain health but granted immortality to those who believed in him and took back dominion over the whole of nature. For as he himself bears witness: All things have been given to me by my Father.

Do not have any anxiety about the future. Leave everything in God’s hands for he will take care of you.

Saint Vincent Ferrer

When troubled with temptations, raise up your heart and soul to God, humbly beseeching Him to turn them to His greater glory, and to your salvation, supporting the temptations as long as it shall please Him, and imploring Him to grant you grace never to offend Him.

Saint John Climacus

A servant of the Lord is he who in body stands before men, but in mind knocks at Heaven with prayer.
