“I have come to set the earth on fire!”
“And I will ask the Father
and he will give you another Advocate
to be with you always,
the Spirit of truth,
which the world cannot accept,
because it neither sees nor knows it.
But you know it,
because it remains with you
and will be in you.”
“His action is preceded
by the beaming rays of His light and knowledge.
He comes with the truth of the real Protector;
for He comes to save, to lead, to teach, to counsel,
to strengthen, to console,
to illumine in the first place the mind of the person
who receives Him
and through that person‘s works,
the minds of others.”
St Cyril of Jerusalem (315-387)
Father and Doctor of the Church
“Go Forth, Set the World on Fire”
St Ignatius Loyola (1491-1556)
“A Son of the Immaculate Heart of Mary
is a man on fire with love,
who spreads it’s flames wherever he goes.
He desires mightily and strives by all means possible,
to set the whole world on fire with God’s love.
Nothing daunts him,
he delights in privations,
smiles at slander
and rejoices in suffering.
His only concern
is how he can best follow Jesus Christ
and imitate Him in working,
suffering and striving constantly
for the greater glory of God
and the salvation of souls.”
St Anthony Mary Claret (1807-1870)
