“If you continue in my word,
you are truly my disciples
and you will know the truth
and the truth will make you free.”

John 8:31-32

“The good man, though a slave, is free;
the wicked, though he reigns, is a slave
and not the slave of a single man
but, what is worse,
the slave of as many masters,
as he has vices.”

St Augustine (354-430)
Father & Doctor of Grace

“He came to lead our lives
away from corruption, to Himself
and gave us freedom, in place of slavery.”

St Anastasius II of Antioch (550-609)

“Earthly riches are like the reed.
Its roots are sunk in the swamp
and its exterior, is fair to behold
but inside, it is hollow.
If a man leans on such a reed,
it will snap off and pierce his soul.”

St Anthony of Padua (1195-1231)
Evangelical Doctor
