“To be a Catholic
is my greatest glory.”
St Edmund Campion (1540-1581
“The Gospel showed me
that the first commandment is to love God
with all one’s heart
and that, we should enfold everything in love;
that the first effect of love is imitation.”
“Every person is a child of God,
who loves them infinitely:
it is, therefore, impossible to want to love God,
without loving human beings –
the more one loves God,
the more one loves people.
The love of God, the love of people,
is my whole life;
it will be my whole life, I hope.”
“When you love,
you feel like speaking the whole time
with the one you love,
or at least, you want to look at Him without ceasing.
Prayer is nothing else.
It is the familiar meeting with our Beloved.
We look at Him,
we tell Him we love Him,
we rejoice to be at His feet.”
“I would like to be
that people would say:
‘If such is the servant,
what must the Master be like.’”
