Quote/s of the Day – 3 December – The Memorial of St Francis Xavier SJ (1506-1552)
“It is impossible
to find a saint
who did not take
the “two P’s” seriously –
Prayer and Penance.”
“I am in a country
where all the niceties of life are lacking.
But I am filled with many inner consolations.
Indeed, I run the risk of crying my eyes out
because of my tears of joy!”
“It is not the actual physical exertion
that counts towards a one’s progress,
nor the nature of the task but by the
spirit of faith with which it is undertaken.”
“When trying to evangelise,
no tool is more effective,
than that of personal witness.
…People can argue with points of doctrine
but no-one can argue,
with a personal testimony!”
“Prayer is powerful!
It fills the earth with mercy,
it makes the Divine clemency
pass from generation to generation,
right along the course of the centuries.
wonderful works have been achieved.
“If you are in danger,
if your hearts are confused,
turn to Mary!”
