Quote/s of the Day – 17 November – Mercy/Charity/Love on the Memorial of St Elizabeth of Hungary – Apostle of Charity (1207-1231)
“It is better to err by excess of mercy
than by excess of severity. . .
Wilt thou become a Saint?
Be severe to thyself but kind to others.”
“Mercy imitates God and disappoints Satan.”
St John Chrysostom (347-407) Father & Doctor of the Church
“Two works of mercy set a person free:
Forgive and you will be forgiven
and give and you will receive.”
” Love is itself the fulfillment of all our works.
There is the goal;
that is why we run:
we run toward it and once we reach it,
in it we shall find rest.
St Augustine (354-430) Father & Doctor of the Church
“Lord, I am in this world to show Your mercy to others…
For my part I will glorify You by making known
how good You are to sinners, that Your mercy is boundless.”
