Saint John Chrysostom

Saint John Chrysostom

For where God wills, nature yields. For He willed. He had the power. He descended. He redeemed. All things move in obedience to God. This day He Who is born and He Who is becomes what He is not. He is God become man, yet not departing from His Godhead.

Saint John of the Cross

Saint John of the Cross

The virtuous soul that is alone and without a master is like a lone burning coal; it will grow colder rather than hotter. Those who fall alone remain alone in their fall, and they value their souls little since they entrust it to themselves alone. If you do not fear falling alone, do you presume that you will rise up alone? Consider how much more can be accomplished by two together than by one alone.

Pope Saint John Paul II

Pope Saint John Paul II

Opening ourselves to our fellow man, to our neighbour, constitutes one of the principal fruits of sincere conversion. Man breaks out of his selfish �being for himself alone� and opens himself to others, feeling the need to �be for others�, to be for his brothers and sisters.

I offer my nothingness so that the Holy Spirit can bestow his gifts of love, light and peace upon the youth; so that everybody can understand what a free and immese gift life is and how important it is to live every instant in the fullness of God.

All the wealth in the world cannot be compared with the happiness of living together happily united.

Saint Cardinal John H. Newman

Saint Cardinal John H. Newman

Jesus, help me to spread your fragrance wherever I am. Fill my heart with your Spirit and your life. Penetrate my being and take such hold of me that my life becomes a radiation of your own life. Give your light through me and remain in me in such a way that every soul I come in contact with can feel your presence in me. May people not see me, but see you in me.

Love is a mystery that transforms everything it touches into things beautiful and pleasing to God.

Saint Therese of Lisieux

Saint Therese of Lisieux

Our Lord does not come down from Heaven every day to lie in a golden ciborium. He comes to find another heaven which is infinitely dearer to Him–the heaven of our souls, created in His Image, the living temples of the Adorable Trinity.

It is our vocation to set people’s hearts ablaze, to do what the Son of God did, who came to light a fire on earth in order to set it ablaze with His love.
