Quote/s of the Day – 12 February
“Speaking of Lent”
The Imitation of Christ
“Without the Way, there is no going,
Without the Truth, there is no knowing,
Without the Life, there is no living.”
“Follow Me. I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Without the Way, there is no going.
Without the Truth, there is no knowing.
Without the Life, there is no living.
I am the Way, which you must follow,
the Truth, which you must believe,
the Life, for which you must hope.
I am the inviolable Way,
the infallible Truth,
the unending Life.
I am the Way that is straight,
the supreme Truth,
the Life that is true,
the blessed, the uncreated Life.
If you abide in My Way, you shall know the Truth
and the Truth shall make you free
and you shall attain life everlasting.”
“If you wish to enter into life, keep My commandments.
If you will know the truth, believe in Me.
If you will be perfect, sell all.
If you will be My disciple, deny yourself.
If you will possess the blessed life, despise this present life.
If you will be exalted in heaven, humble yourself on earth.
If you wish to reign with Me, carry the Cross with Me.
For only the servants of the Cross find the life of blessedness and of true light.”
“MY CHILD, the more you depart from yourself,
the more you will be able to enter into Me.
As the giving up of exterior things, brings interior peace,
so the forsaking of self, unites you to God.
I will have you learn perfect surrender to My will,
without contradiction or complaint.”
“Take courage, brethren, let us go forward together
and Jesus will be with us.
For Jesus’ sake we have taken this cross.
For Jesus’ sake let us persevere with it.
He will be our help as He is also our leader and guide.
Behold, our King goes before us and will fight for us.
Let us follow like men.
Let no man fear any terrors.
Let us be prepared to meet death valiantly in battle.
Let us not suffer our glory to be blemished
by fleeing from the Cross.”
The Imitation of Christ Chapter 56
“If, however, you seek Jesus in all things,
you will surely find Him. “
