Quote/s of the Day – 19 October – The Memorial of St Paul of the Cross CP (1604-1775)
“We ought to glory in nothing
other than, the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.
You are blessed and don’t know it.
You have Jesus Crucified, with you!”
“Your crosses dear God,
are the joy of my heart.
How beautiful to suffer with Jesus.”
“Oh cherished cross!
Through thee my most bitter trials
are replete with graces!”
“The passion of Jesus is a sea of sorrows
but it is also an ocean of love.
Ask the Lord to teach you to fish in this ocean.
Dive into its depths.
No matter how deep you go,
you will never reach the bottom.”
“Do not live any longer in yourself
but let Jesus Christ live in you in such a way
that the virtue of this Divine Saviour may be resplendent
in all your actions, in order that all may see in you
a true portrait of the Crucified and sense,
the sweetest fragrance of the holy virtues of the Lord,
in interior and exterior modesty,
and in all others that follow.”
“Look upon the face of the Crucified,
who invites you to follow Him.
He will be a Father, Mother–everything to you.”
St Paul of the Cross (1604-1775)
