Quote/s of the Day – 6 November – On Achieving Sanctity!

“We must have a real living determination to reach holiness.
‘I will be a saint’ – means I will despoil myself of all that is not God;
I will strip my heart of all created things;
I will live in poverty and detachment;
I will renounce my will,
my inclinations,
my whims and fancies
and make myself a willing slave to the will of God.”

St Mother Teresa (1910-1997)we must have a real living determination - st mother teresa - 6 nov 2017

“God’s invitation to become saints is for all, not just a few.
Sanctity therefore must be accessible to all.
In what does it consist?
In a lot of activity? No.
In doing extraordinary things?
No, this could not be for everybody and at all times.
Therefore, sanctity consists in doing good
and in doing this good in whatever condition
and place God has placed us.
Nothing more, nothing outside of this.”

Blessed Louis Tezza (1841-1923)god's invitation - bl louis tezza - 6 nov 2017

“If God gives you an abundant harvest of trials,
it is a sign of great holiness which He desires you to attain.
Do you want to become a great saint?
Ask God to send you many sufferings.
The flame of Divine Love never rises higher.
than when fed with the wood of the Cross,
which the infinite charity of the Saviour used to finish His sacrifice.
All the pleasures of the world are nothing,
compared with the sweetness found in the gall and vinegar
offered to Jesus Christ. That is:
hard and painful things endured for Jesus Christ
and with Jesus Christ!”

St Ignatius Loyolaif god give you an abundant - st ignatius loyola - 6 nov 2017

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
