Quote/s of the Day – 26 June – The Memorial of St Josemaria Escrivá (1902-1975)
“Turn your gaze constantly to Jesus who,
without ceasing to be God, humbled Himself
and took the nature of a slave, in order to serve us…
May you seek Christ,
may you find Christ,
may you love Christ.”
“When you approach the tabernacle,
remember, that He has been waiting
for you for twenty centuries.”
““A man who fails to love the Mass, fails to love Christ.
We must make an effort to ‘live’ the Mass with calm and serenity,
with devotion and affection.
And this is why I have always suspected that those who want the Mass
to be over with quickly show, with this insensitive attitude,
that they have not yet realised what the sacrifice of the altar means.”
AND “Many Christians take their time and have leisure enough
in their social life (no hurry here).
They are leisurely, too, in their professionally 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?”
“If you have so many defects,
why are you surprised,
to find defects in others?”
“Conversion is the task of a moment;
sanctification is the work of a lifetime.
To begin is for everyone,
to persevere is for saints!”
“We are all called to be saints!
A saint is a person,
who lets the light shine through.”
