Quote/s of the Day – 22 October – On Pilgrimage
“Let Your Name, not mine, be praised.
Let Your Work, not mine, be magnified.
Let Your Holy Name be blessed
but let no human praise be given to me.
You are my glory.
You are the joy of my heart.
In You I will glory and rejoice
all the day and for myself
I will glory in nothing but my infirmities. … ”
Thomas `a Kempis CRSA (1380-1471)
The Imitation of Christ – Book 3 Chapter 40
“And like the little grain of mustard seed …
we should set it in the garden of our soul,
all weeds being pulled out
for the better feeding of our faith.
Then shall it grow and …
through the true belief of God’s word …
we shall be well able to command
a great mountain of tribulation
to void from the place
where it stood in our hearts,
whereas with a very feeble faith
and faint, we shall scarcely
be able to remove a little hillock.”
St Thomas More (1478-1535)
“Never listen to those,
who are speaking evil of another
and never say anything evil of anyone,
excepting of yourself
and when you take pleasure in doing this,
you will be advancing rapidly.”
St Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)
Doctor of the Church
“All our goodness is a loan;
God is the owner;
and His work is God.”
