Quote/s of the Day – 13 November – The Memorial of St Stanislaus Kostka SJ (1550-1568) and Bl Karl Lampert (1894-1944) Martyr and of all the Saints of the Order of St Norbert, the Order of Canons Regular of Prémontré, also known as the Premonstratensians, the Norbertines and the White Canons.
On the day of his ordination, St Norbert said:
You are not of yourself because you are of God.
You are not of yourself because you are the servant and minister of Christ.
You are not your own because you are the spouse of the Church.
You are not yourself because you are the mediator between God and man.
You are not from yourself because you are nothing.
What then are you? Nothing and everything.
Take care, lest what was said to Christ on the cross be said to you:
‘He saved others, himself he cannot save!”
St Norbert (c 1080-1134)
“What have I done for Christ?
What am I doing for Christ?
What ought I do for Christ?”
St Stanislaus Kostka SJ (1550-1568)
“I love my Church.
I remain faithful to my Church
and to the priesthood.
I am on Christ’s side
and I love His Church.”
Said during his trial, in which the Nazis condemned him to death by guillotining.
Blessed Karl Lampert (1894-1944) Martyr
