Quote/s of the Day – 19 February – the Memorial of Bl John Sullivan SJ (1861-1933)
“Any friend of the poor
is a friend of God.”
“I hope every single one of you, will have broken, every resolution you made, in the retreat before the end of the week, and if not then, at least in a fortnight. It will do you good and humble you, provided you get up and begin again and do not flop down and lie there on the broad of your back, saying “It’s no use, it’s all over.” Not a bit of it, it’s not all over, it’s only beginning. So up with you and start again. Remember, each time you fall, that you are not back where you were before but are starting again, from where you fell.”
“Be always beginning.
Let the past go.
The saints were always beginning.
That is how they became saints.”
the lovely Face of God.”
