August 21 – Saint Pius X

Saint Pius X

listenHoly Spirit, Saint Pius X is the pope who authorized children to receive Holy Communion and encouraged everyone to receive the Eucharist as often as possible.  During his papacy, he had many heavy responsibilities that increased in difficulty, and he relied on You, saying, “His Power is infinite, and if I lean on him, it will be mine.  His Wisdom is infinite, and if I look to Him for counsel, I shall not be deceived.”  I ask him to pray for my endurance in the responsibilities I face.  Remind me to turn to You whenever I feel weak, tired, or discouraged, for You are the source of everything I need.  Saint Pius, pray for me.  Amen.

Quotes for Today

Pope Saint Pius X (1835-1914)

quoteTruly we are passing through disastrous times, when we may well make our own the lamentation of the Prophet: “There is no truth, and there is no mercy, and there is no knowledge of God in the land” (Hosea 4:1). Yet in the midst of this tide of evil, the Virgin Most Merciful rises before our eyes like a rainbow, as the arbiter of peace between God and man.”

quoteMy hope is in Christ, who strengthens the weakest by His Divine help. I can do all in Him who strengthens me. His Power is infinite, and if I lean on Him, it will be mine. His Wisdom is infinite, and if I look to Him for counsel, I shall not be deceived. His Goodness is infinite, and if my trust is stayed in Him, I shall not be abandoned.”

quoteThere is no holiness without the grace of God. And this grace can be obtained by our prayers.”
