Quote/s of the Day –13 April – Easter Thursday
“ … Have perfect faith
and love for Jesus Christ.
These are the beginning
and the end of life –
faith the beginning, love the end.
When these two are found together,
there is God and everything else
concerning right living follows from them. …”
“Nothing is hidden from the Lord
but even our secrets are close to Him.
Let us then, do everything,
in the knowledge that He is dwelling within us
that we may be His temples
and He ,God within us.”
St Ignatius of Antioch (c35–c107)
Bishop, Martyr, Apostolic Father
“If we follow Christ closely we shall be allowed,
even on this earth,
to stand, as it were,
on the threshold of the heavenly Jerusalem
and enjoy the contemplation,
of that everlasting feast,
like the blessed Apostles,
who, in following the Saviour as their leader,
showed and still show,
the way to obtain the same gift from God.
They said – See, we have left all things and followed You.
We too follow the Lord
and we keep His feast
by deeds rather than by words.”
St Athanasius (297-373)
Father & Doctor of the Church
“Is it possible that I have been loved
and loved so tenderly, by my Saviour?
That He thought of me personally
in all these little events by which
He has drawn me to Himself?
How much then should we love,
cherish and make good use of all this
for our benefit!
This is extremely kind.
this loving Heart of my God thought of me,
loved me and obtained for me
a thousand means of salvation.
This He did as though there was no other soul
in the world He could think of!”
