“Quickly bring the finest robe
and put it on him”
‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’
“You do not know
when your last day may come.
You are an ingrate!
Why not use the day, today,
that God has given you
“He who calls us, came here below,
to give us the means of getting there.
He chose the wood
that would enable us to cross the sea –
indeed, no-one can cross the ocean of this world,
who is not borne by the Cross of Christ.
Even the blind can cling to this Cross.
If you can’t see where you are going very well,
don’t let go of it, it will guide you by itself. ”
St Augustine (354-430)
Father & Doctor of Grace
“A saint is not someone, who never sins,
but one who sins less and less frequently
and gets up more and more quickly.”
St Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153)
“Aspire to God with short
but frequent outpourings of the heart,
admire His bounty,
invoke His aid,
cast yourself in spirit at the foot of His Cross,
adore His goodness,
treat with Him of your salvation,
give Him your whole soul –
a thousand times in the day.”
