Quote/s of the Day – 26 June – Tthe Memorial of Blessed Jacques Ghazir Haddad OFM Cap (1875-1954) “The Apostle of Lebanon” “The Apostle of the Cross”
“… Just as a person,
who denies a single point of dogma,
has lost his faith,
so, to hate a single person,
means that you have lost charity.”
“The Holy Spirit gives his grace to everyone,
as long as they do not refuse it.”
“God gives us an example.
He makes His sun rise on good and evil alike.
His Son died for all men and women.
… Let us imitate the sun.”
“Let us imitate the fountain.
It does not say to a thirsty man:
Before I give you a drink,
tell me what country you come from!”
“May our heart be gentle, Christ‐like,
towards the wretched and those who suffer.
May they be to us, sons and daughters.
How sweet this service,
how precious this life,
when it is consecrated to the love of God
and of neighbour, His visible image on earth.”
