Quote/s of the Day – 7 June – Heaven

Quote/s of the Day – 7 June – “Month of the Sacred Heart” – Readings: First: Second Corinthians 1: 1-7, Psalm: Psalms 34: 2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9, Gospel: Matthew 5: 1-12

“Rejoice and be glad,
for your reward will be great in heaven.”

Matthew 5:12

“Why do we on earth not strive
to find rest with Him in heaven even now,
through the faith, hope and love that unites us to Him?
While in heaven. He is also with us
and we, while on earth, are with Him.
He is here with us by His divinity,
His power and His love.
We cannot be in heaven,
as He is on earth, by divinity
but in Him, we can be there by love.”

St Augustine (354-430)
Great Western Father and Doctor of the Church

“Keep a clear eye toward life’s end.
Do not forget your purpose
and destiny as God’s creature.
What you are in His sight,
is what you are and nothing more.
Remember that when you leave this earth,
you can take nothing that you have received…
but only what you have given – a full heart
enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage.”

St Francis of Assisi (c 1181-1226)

“In truth, the loss or gain of God’s kingdom, is up to you.”

Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471)

“We should work and pray with our feet on the earth
and our minds in heaven.
We should seek God, not ourselves,
in everything which we do.
Let us remember,
that one moment in Heaven,
is worth infinitely more
than all the pleasure, love and vanity of this world!”

Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
