Quote/s of the Day – 16 August – The Memorial of St Stephen of Hungary (c 975- 1038)
“Be HUMBLE in this life,
that God may raise you up in the next.
Be truly MODERATE
and do not punish or condemn anyone immoderately.
so that you may never oppose justice.
so that you may never voluntarily
bring disgrace upon anyone.
so that you may avoid all the foulness of lust
like the pangs of death.”
“Be merciful to all
who are suffering violence,
keeping always in your heart
the example of the Lord
‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice.’”
