Quote/s of the Day – 11 October – The Memorial of St John XXIII (1881-1963)
“It is easier for a father to have children
than for children to have a real father.”
“Every time I hear anyone speak of the Sacred Heart of Jesus or of the Blessed Sacrament I feel an indescribable joy.
It is as if a wave of precious memories, sweet affections and joyful hopes swept over my poor person,
making me tremble with happiness and filling my soul with tenderness.
These are loving appeals from Jesus who wants me wholeheartedly there, at the source of all goodness,
His Sacred Heart, throbbing mysteriously behind the Eucharistic veils…
I love to repeat today ‘Sweet Heart of my Jesus, make me love You more and more.'”
Holy Mother Church is a home for one and all.
She desires to belong to everyone
and in particular she is the Church of the poor,
like the village fountain”.
