Quote/s of the Day – 17 February – Monday of the Sixth week in Ordinary Time, Year A
And he sighed deeply in his spirit and said,
“Why does this generation seek a sign?
“But for what sign from heaven were they asking?
Maybe that He should hold back the sun,
or curb the moon,
or bring down thunderbolts,
or change the direction of the wind,
or something like that?
In Pharaoh’s time there was an enemy
from whom deliverance was needed.
But for one who comes among friends,
there should be no need of such signs.”
St John Chrysostom (347-407)
Father & Doctor
“You also are blessed,
because you have heard and believed.
A soul that believes, both conceives
and brings forth the Word of God
and acknowledges His works.
… Christ has only one mother, in the flesh
but we all bring forth Christ, in faith.”
St Ambrose of Milan (340-397)
Great Latin Father and Doctor of the Church
“For those who believe,
everything is a sign!”
