Quote/s of the Day – 24 March – The Memorial of Blessed Didacus Joseph of Cadiz OFM Cap (1743–1801) and Saint Óscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdámez (1917–1980) Martyr

“By means of our penances
we should atone for the sins of our fellowmen
and thus preserve ourselves
and them from eternal death.   
It would hardly be too much
if we shed the last drop of our blood
for their conversion.”

Blessed Didacus Joseph of Cadiz (1743–1801)

“If we are worth anything,
it is not because we have
more money or more talent,
or more human qualities.
Insofar, as we are worth anything,
it is, because we are grafted onto Christ’s life,
His cross and resurrection.
That is a person’s measure.”
