Quote/s of the Day – 2 June – The Octave Day of the Ascension
“He who believes and is baptised,
shall be saved …”
“See that you not be deceived,
for many will come in my name,
saying, ‘I am he’
and ‘The time has come.’
Do not follow them!”
I became useless to those
who knew Me not,
because I shall hide Myself,
from those who possessed Me not.
And I will be with those who love Me.
… I arose and am with them
and will speak by their mouths.
For they have rejected those
who persecute them
and I threw over them, the yoke of My love.
… Then I heard their voice
and placed their faith in My Heart.
And I placed My Name upon their forehead (Rv 14,1)
because they are free and they are Mine!”
Odes of Solomon
(Hebrew Christian text f
rom the beginning of the 2nd Century)
“Faith gives rise to prayer
and this prayer obtains
an increase of faith.”
“Wherever you are on earth,
however long you remain on earth,
the Lord is near,
do not be anxious about anything!”
St Augustine (354-430)
Father and Doctor of Grace
“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)
