Quote/s of the Day 26 June

“A man who fails to love the Mass fails to love Christ.   We must make an effort to ‘live’ the Mass with calm and serenity, with devotion and affection.   And this is why I have always suspected that those who want the Mass to be over with quickly show, with this insensitive attitude, that they have not yet realised what the sacrifice of the altar means.” AND   “Many Christians take their time and have leisure enough in their social life (no hurry here).   They are leisurely, too, in their professionally activities, at table and recreation (no hurry here either).   But isn’t it strange how those same Christians find themselves in such a rush and want to hurry the priest, in their anxiety to shorten the time devoted to the most holy sacrifice of the altar?”

“To defend his purity, Saint Francis of Assisi rolled in the snow, Saint Benedict threw himself into a thorn bush and Saint Bernard plunged into an icy pond… You – what have you done?” …………………May I give you some advice for you to put into practice daily? When your heart makes you feel those low cravings, say slowly to the Immaculate Virgin:  Look on me with compassion.   Don’t abandon me.   Don’t abandon me, my Mother! – And recommend this prayer to others.”

don't abandon me my mother - st josemaria

“If you have so many defects, why are you surprised to find defects in others?”
