Quote/s of the Day – 9 August – The Memorial of St John Marie Vianney (1786-1859) Confessor
“To be saved,
we must know, love,and serve God.
Oh, what a beautiful life!
How good, how great a thing it is,
to know, to love and serve God!
We have nothing else to do in this world.
All that we do, besides this, is lost time! ”
“This is a good rule of conduct –
to do nothing but that
which we can offer to the good God.
Now, we cannot offer to Him –
slanders, calumnies, injustice,
anger, blasphemy, impurity …
yet that is all that people do in the world!”
“When death shall come upon us,
of what use, will three-quarters
of our life have been to us?
With what are we occupied,
the greatest part of our time?
Are we thinking of the good God,
of our salvation, of our soul?”
