Quotes of the Day – 15 April – The Third Sunday of Easter Year B

“Speaking of the Holy Mass”

“Recognise in this bread what hung on the cross
and in this chalice what flowed from His side…
whatever was in many and varied ways
announced beforehand in the sacrifices
of the Old Testament
pertains to this one sacrifice
which is revealed in the New Testament.”

St Augustine (354-430) Father & Doctorrecognise in this bread what hung - st augustine - 15 april 2018

“Jesus taught a new sacrifice
which the Church received
from the Apostles and offers
throughout the whole world.”

St Irenaeus (130-202) Father of the Churchjesus taught a new sacrifice - st irenaeus - 15 april 2018

“All the good works in the world
are not equal to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
because they are the works of men – 
but the Mass is the work of God.
Martyrdom is nothing in comparison,
for it is but the sacrifice of man to God – 
but the Mass is the sacrifice of God for man.”

St John Vianney (1786-1859)all the good works in the world are not equal - st john vianney - 15 april 2018

“Many Christians take their time
and have leisure enough in their social life
(no hurry here).
They are leisurely, too, in their professional activities,
at table and recreation (no hurry here either).
But isn’t it strange, how those same Christians.
find themselves in such a rush
and want to hurry the priest,
in their anxiety to shorten the time devoted
to the most holy sacrifice of the altar?

St Josemaria Escriva (1902-1975)many christians take their time - st josemaria - 15 april 2018

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.
