Quote/s of the Day – 23 April – Marked with His brand

Quote/s of the Day – 23 April – the Memorial of Bl Teresa Maria of the Cross OCD (1846–1910)

Do you know what it means
to be truly spiritual?
It means becoming the slaves of God.
Marked with His brand,
which is that of the Cross,
spiritual persons,
because now, they have given Him,
their liberty,
can be sold by Him,
as slaves of everyone,
as He was.
In acting this way,
He doesn’t do us any harm
but rather He grants us,
a not insignificant grace.do youknow what it means - bl teresa maria of the cross - 23 april 2019.jpg

We have always seen,
that those who were
closest to Christ our Lord,
were those with the greatest trials.
Let us look at what
His glorious Mother suffered
and the glorious apostles.
Take up the Cross of Jesus.
Help your Spouse to carry the burden
that weighs Him down
and pay no attention
to what they may say about you.
If you should happen to stumble
and fall like your Spouse,
do not withdraw from the Cross or abandon it.
No matter how great your trials may be,
you will see, that they are quite small,
in comparison to His.take up the cross - bl teresa maria of the cross 23 april 2019.jpg

If we never look at Him
or reflect on what we owe Him
and the death He suffered for us,
I don’t know how we’ll be able
to know Him or serve Him.
And without these works in His service,
what value will our faith have?
And what value will our works have,
if they are separated,
from the inestimable merits
of Jesus Christ, our Good.
And then, who will bring us
to love this Lord?”

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. 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 is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
