Quote/s of the Day – 8 February – The Memorial of St Jerome Emiliani (1486–1537)

“God wishes to test you, like gold in the furnace.
The dross is consumed by the fire but the pure gold remains
and its value increases.
It is in this manner, that God acts with His good servant,
who puts his hope in Him and remains unshaken in times of distress.
God raises him up and, in return for the things,
he has left out of love for God, He repays him a hundredfold in this life
and with eternal life hereafter.
If then you remain constant in faith, in the face of trial,
the Lord will give you peace and rest for a time in this world
and forever in the next.”

“I urge you to persevere in your love for Christ
and your faithful observance of the law of Christ.
Our goal is God, the source of all good.
As we say in our prayer,
we are to place our trust in God and in no one else.
In His kindness, our Lord wished to strengthen your faith,
for without it, as the evangelist points out,
Christ could not have performed many of His miracles.”

“Therefore, having done what you could,
the Lord will be satisfied with you
because for Him,
who is the most benign,
goodwill compensates
for the lack of success. “
(Letter 5 #4)

St Jerome Emiliani (1486–1537)

We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
