Quote/s of the Day – 8 March – The Memorial of St John of God (1495-1550)
“The first (virtue) is faith,
believing all that
holy mother church
believes and holds,
keeping and putting
what she commands”
“Labour without stopping,
do all the good works you can,
while you still have the time.”
“If we look forward to receiving God’s mercy,
we can never fail to do good,
so long as we have the strength.
For if we share with the poor,
out of love for God,
whatever He has given to us,
we shall receive according to His promise,
a hundredfold in eternal happiness.
What a fine profit, what a blessed reward!
With outstretched arms He begs us
to turn toward Him, to weep for our sins
and to become the servants of love,
first for ourselves, then for our neighbours.
Just as water extinguishes a fire,
so love wipes away sin.”
“Whether you like it or not,
you will grow apart from human beings.
However, Christ is faithful
and always with you.
Fot Christ provides all things.”
