Quote/s of the Day – 27 April – Friday of the Fourth Week of Eastertide
“Speaking of: Sin and Suffering”
“The dragon, sits by the side of the road,
watching those who pass.
Beware lest he devour you.
We go to the Father of Souls
but it is necessary,
to pass by the dragon.”
St Cyril of Jerusalem (315-387) Father & Doctor of the Church
“Only those who do not fight
are never wounded.”
St John Chrysostom (347-407) Father & Doctor of the Church
“The life of each and every one of us has been written.
The crucifix is my autobiography.
The blood is the ink.
The nails the pen.
The skin the parchment.
On every line of that body, I can trace my life.
In the crown of thorns I can read my pride.
In the hands that are dug with nails,
I can read avarice and greed.
In the flesh hanging from him like purple rags,
I can read my lust.
In feet that are fettered, I can find the times
that I ran away and would not let Him follow.
Any sin that you can think of is written there.”
Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen (1895-1979)
“My key to heaven
is that I loved Jesus
in the night.”
St Mother Teresa (1910-1997)
“Don’t waste your suffering.”
