Quote/s of the Day – 30 August – The Memorial of St Jeanne Jugan /Mary of the Cross (1792 – 1879)
“Little, very little,
be very little before God.”
“He is so good … love God very much.
All for Him,
do everything through love.”
“My little ones, never forget
that the poor are Our Lord;
in caring for the poor say to yourself:
This is for my Jesus – what a great grace!”
“We were grafted into the Cross.”
“Eternal Father, open your gates today
to the most miserable of your children
but one who greatly longs to see You.
O Mary, my dear Mother, come to me.
You know that I love you
and I long to see You.”
(her last words)
St Jeanne Jugan/Mary of the Cross (1792-1879)
