Quote/s of the Day – 15 August – The Memorial of St Simplicain, Friend and Teacher of St Ambrose and the “spiritual father of my soul” of St Augustine, both Fathers and Doctors of the Church
“Only the “new” person can sing a new song to the Lord:
the person restored from a fallen condition through the grace of God.
Let us sing a new song –
not with our lips
but with our lives!”
St Augustine (354-430) Father and Doctor of the Church
“All the children of the Church are priests.
At Baptism, they received the anointing
that gives them a share in the priesthood.
The sacrifice which they must offer to God
is completely spiritual – it is THEMSELVES!”
St Ambrose (340-397) Father and Doctor of the Church
