“In all our undertakings —
when we enter a place or leave it,
before we dress,
before we bathe,
when we take our meals,
when we light the lamps in the evening,
before we retire at night,
when we sit down to read,
before each new task —
we trace the Sign of the Cross on our foreheads.”
Father of the Church
“O adorable mystery!
In the name of God,
the Omnipotent Father, who created me!
In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord,
Son of the living God, who bled for me!
In the name of the Holy Spirit,
who has been poured out on me!”
St John Henry Newman (1801-1890)
“Silence is precious.
by keeping silence
and knowing how to listen to God,
the soul grows in wisdom
and God teaches it,
what it cannot learn from men.”
“Our Lord became a spring for us,
so that we should not die of thirst
among all the miseries that surround us.”
“How truly He said in the Gospel
that He came to serve and not to be served!
What tremendous goodness!
Can we fail to be shamed by Your words and deeds
and the patience You show for us everyday?”
Bl Ana of St Bartholomew (1550-1626)
“How can anyone be lonely,
with Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament?”
“As to nobility of blood,
true nobility is to be derived
only, from the Blood of the Son of God.”
“Three things I cannot escape:
the eye of God,
the voice of conscience,
the stroke of death.
In company, guard your tongue.
In your family, guard your temper.
When alone guard your thoughts.”
“The Heart of Jesus is with me.”
