Pope Saint Pius V

You are the salt of the earth! You are the light of the world! See to it that the people are edified by your example, by the purity of your lives, by the moderation of your conduct, and the brilliance of your holiness! God does not ask of you mere ordinary virtue. He demands downright perfection!

Saint Catherine of Siena

Now we are the vessel that has received this blood. And we are the rock into which the standard of the most holy cross was set.

Saint Gianna Beretta Molla

The secret of happiness is to live moment by moment and to thank God for all that He, in His goodness, sends to us day after day.

Saint Mary Euphrasia Pelletier

If you always love one another, if you always uphold one another, you will be capable of working wonders!

Saint Benedict Joseph Labre

God is so good and so merciful, that to obtain Heaven it is sufficient to ask it of Him from our hearts.

Saint Joseph Moscati

Love truth; show yourself as you are, without pretenses and fears and without ceremonies. And if the truth causes you persecution accept it, and if it causes some torment, bear it and if for truth’s sake you should sacrifice your self and your life, be strong in your sacrifice.

Saint Gemma Galgani

If I saw the gates of Hell open and I stood on the brink of the abyss, I should not despair, I should not lose hope of mercy, because I should trust in Thee, my God.

Saint Julie Billiart

I ought to die of shame to think I have not already died of gratitude to my good God.
