Quote/s of the Day – 1 November – – The Solemnity of All the Saints
“If we only got to heaven,
what a sweet and easy thing it will be there,
to be always saying with the angels and the saints,
‘Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus.’”
St Philip Neri (1515-1595)
...”But do not forget that all the saints
cannot endear you to Christ
as much as you can yourseIf.
It is entirely up to You!”
St Cajetan (1480-1547) Founder of the Theatines
“Remember the sufferings of Christ,
the storms that were weathered…
the crown that came from those sufferings
which gave new radiance to the faith…
All saints give testimony to the truth
that without real effort,
no-one ever wins the crown.”
St Thomas à Becket (1118-1170)
“God creates out of nothing.
Wonderful you say.
Yes, to be sure but He does.
what is still more wonderful,
He makes saints out of sinners.”
