Sample Saint Quotes

Pray that neither self-indulgence nor pride, nor any other evil passion, prevent me from seeing in my patients Jesus who suffers, and from healing and comforting Him.
(Saint Richard Pampuri)

Let's influence those around us, not through an insignificant sermonizing, but through the irresistible power of our spirituality and the example of our lives.
(Servant of God Elisabeth Leseur)

If your desire and aim is to reach the destination of the path and home of true happiness, of grace and glory, by a straight and safe way, then earnestly apply your mind to seek constant purity of heart, clarity of mind and calm of the senses. Gather up your heart's desire and fix it continually on the Lord God.
(Saint Albert the Great)

Complain as little as possible of your wrongs, for as a general rule you may be sure that complaining is sin... because self-love always magnifies our injuries.
(Saint Hilary of Arles)

Let them remember that the seed of the Word of God bears fruit in patience.
(Saint Francis de Montmorency Laval)

The imitation of Christ in the lives of Saints is always possible and compatible with every state of life. The Saints did but one thing: the will of God. But they did it with all their might. We have only to do the same thing.
(Blessed Miriam Teresa Demjanovich)

Return thanks to God for all your spiritual graces, natural gifts and every other good that you possess, attributing nothing to yourself except your sins, faults and imperfections.
(Saint John of Avila)

We can tell the solution of any question not through our own reasoning but from what follows from the Scriptures.
(Saint Germanus of Constantinople)

He said not: you shall not be troubled, you shall not be tempted, you shall not be distressed. But he said: You shall not be overcome.
(Blessed Julian of Norwich)

Have love in your hearts but repress the tendency to appear devout.
(Saint Maria Mazzarello)

Although obedience and poverty seem to confine and restrict our freedom, nevertheless, poverty makes us rich, and obedience makes us free. Whoever follows Jesus along the straight and narrow path will not be hampered by attachments to riches and to his own will.
(Saint Anthony of Padua)

Humility and obedience are also absolutely essential to the interior rule of the Holy Spirit. Self-love, self-activity, self-hood, is something not easily destroyed. It is like a cancer which has its roots extending to the most delicate fibers of our mental and moral nature. Divine grace can draw them all out. But how slowly! And how exquisitely painful is the process! The more subtle the self-love, the more painful the cure.
(Servant of God Isaac Hecker)

Meditate well on this: Seek God above all things. It is right for you to seek God before and above everything else, because the majesty of God wishes you to receive what you ask for. This will also make you more ready to serve God and will enable you to love him more perfectly.
(Saint Paschal Baylon)

Throw yourself upon Christ's mercy, crying: 'My Love and my Stronghold, my Protector and Liberator, in whom my heart has put its hope.'
(Blessed Alcuin)

Prayer is the raising of the mind to God. When we pray we go to meet Christ, who is coming to us. If our Creator and Savior comes from heaven with such great love, it is only fitting that we should go to meet Him. And this is what we do when we spend some time in prayer.
(Saint Bernardine of Siena)

Leave nothing undared for the Kingdom of God.
(Saint Eugene de Mazenod)

The name of Jesus is more than light, it is also food. Do you not feel greater strength as often as you remember it? What other name can so enrich us when we meditate on it?
(Saint Bernard of Clairvaux)

One of the chief means of our salvation is perseverance in mental prayer. It is so powerful a one that I know of no other way of attaining to perfection. If we are proficient in that exercise we need never fear; but if we neglect it, let us dread the consequences, for we run a great risk of losing our souls.
(Saint John Baptist Rossi)

For the greater the torment, the richer the reward and the fiercer the battle, the brighter the glory…
(Saint Bede the Venerable)

Cheerfulness strengthens the heart and makes us persevere in a good life. Therefore the servant of God ought always to be in good spirits.
(Saint Philip Neri)

But first let me again urge you to pray and pray very much without worrying about anything else. He who is worried and full of anxiety in his work does an offense to God and does not say the Our Father from the heart.
(Saint Joseph Marello)

Nothing so provokes the service of the needy as the consciousness of one's own unworthiness when visited by the grace of God.
(Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen)

A Meditation on the Passion of Christ Through the Eyes of Peter and Judas

Written with a powerfully life-changing twist, this is not the usual Passion story. “Forgiven” shows the passion of Christ as seen through the eyes of Peter and Judas. Each react in different ways to the final days and crucifixion of Jesus. One chooses forgiveness and the other ends his life in terrible guilt.

The story ends with the reunion of Jesus and Peter after the resurrection when Jesus calls Peter to become the first leader of the Church.

This is a fictional account based on the true events of the Passion of Jesus Christ, for the purpose of meditation.
