Quote/s of the Day – 10 October – The Memorial of St Francis Borgia SJ (1510-1572)
“This death … has already levelled
his bow to strike me.
Is it not prudent to prevent its stroke,
by dying now to the world,
that at my death,
I may live to God?”
“O sensual, base,
miserable and blind life!
is it possible, that men should be
such strangers to their own happiness,
such enemies to themselves,
to be fond of thy false enjoyments
and for their sake,
to deprive themselves of those
that are pure, permanent and solid?!”
