“Blessed are they who have not seen
and have believed.”
“… No-one professing faith, sins,
no-one possessing love, hates. …”
St Ignatius of Antioch (c35–c107)
Bishop, Martyr, Apostolic Father
“What determines that the gifts of God
dwells in us,
is the measure of each one’s faith.
Because it is to the extent that we believe
that the enthusiasm to act is given us.
And so those who act,
reveal the measure of their faith
proportionate to their action,
they receive their measure of grace
according to what they have believed. …”
St Maximus the Confessor (c 580-662)
Monk and Theologian
“If we wish to make any progress
in the service of God,
we must begin everyday of our life,
with new eagerness.
We must keep ourselves,
in the presence of God,
as much as possible
and have no other view or end,
in all our actions
but the Divine honour.”
St Charles Borromeo (1538-1584)
“Keep, O Lord, my heart at peace,
always close to Thee.
Thou Who calms the wild waves of the sea.”
