Quote/s of the Day – 10 October – The Memorial of St Francis Borgia SJ (1510-1572) and
St Daniel Comboni (1831-1881)
“I have great doubts about the salvation of those
who do not have special devotion to Mary.”
“When you pray, hear Mass, sit at table, engage in business
and when at bedtime you remove your clothes—
at all times crave that by the pain which He felt when He was stripped
just before His crucifixion, He may strip us of our evil habits of mind.
Thus, naked of earthly things, we may also embrace the cross.”
St Francis Borgia (1510-1572)
I have dedicated my mind and my heart,
my blood and my life.”
“Our life is in God’s hands,
He does what He wants,
by an irrevocable gift,
we have sacrificed
our lives to Him.
Blessed be He.”
“In Jesus crucified we are taken into the depths of God. It is there that we come to understand most deeply the love God has for us and the absolute lengths to which God goes to give us life, even in our moments of darkness and defeat.
hat we see in the passion of Jesus is a love that gathers in all the scattered, shattered pieces of our life and heals them with a tenderness that can break our hearts.
What we see in the cross is a love that loses nothing that can be saved, whether that be our defeats, our brokenness, or our shame. With God all these can be points of life for us and the reason is startling –
God can kiss us with a healing because God is wounded by our pain.”
