Quote/s of the Day – 4 November – The Memorial of St Charles Borromeo (1538-1584)

“If we wish to make any progress in the service of God
we must begin every day of our life with new eagerness.
We must keep ourselves in the presence of God,
as much as possible and have no other view or end,
in all our actions but the divine honour.”if we wish - st charles borromeo - 4 nov 2017

“I admit that we are all weak but if we want help,
the Lord God has given us the means to find it easily.
Would you like me to teach you how to grow from
virtue to virtue and how, if you are already recollected at prayer,
you can be even more attentive next time
and so give God more pleasing worship?
Listen, and I will tell you.
If a tiny spark of God’s love already burns within you,
do not expose it to the wind, for it may get blown out.
Keep the stove tightly shut so that it will not lose its heat
and grow cold.
In other words, avoid distractions as well as you can.
Stay quiet with God.
Do not spend your time in useless chatter.”i admit that we are - st charles borromeo - 4 nov 2017

“Be sure that you first preach by the way you live.
If you do not, people will notice that you say one thing
but live otherwise and your words will bring
only cynical laughter and a derisive shake of the head.”

St Charles Borromeo (1538-1584)be sure that you - st charles borromeo - 4 nov 2017
