Quote/s of the Day – 16 October – The Memorial of St Margaret Mary Alacoque (1647-1690) and St Gerard Majella (1726-1755)
“Let us begin in earnest
to work out our salvation,
for no-one will do it for us,
since even He Himself,
Who made us without ourselves,
will not save us without ourselves!”
“Let every knee bend before You,
O greatness of my God,
so supremely humbled in the Sacred Host.
May every heart love You,
every spirit adore You
and every will be subject to You!
St Margaret Mary Alacoque (1647-1690)
“The Most Blessed Sacrament
is Christ made visible.
The poor sick person
is Christ again made visible.”
St Gerard Majella (1726-1755)

REFLECTION – “Consider the shortness of time, the length of eternity and reflect how everything here below comes to an end and passes by. Of what use is it to lean upon that which cannot give support?”...St Gerard Majella (1726-1755)
“Let us ask the Lord that we never tire of going down that path, that we never tire of rejecting this religion of appearances, this religion of seeming, of pretending…. We must instead be committed to proceed quietly, doing good and doing so freely, as we have freely received, our interior freedom. Let us ask for this grace.”…Pope Francis – Santa Marta, 11 October 2016
PRAYER – Lord Jesus Christ, You wondrously revealed all of the deep treasures of Your Heart to Your saints. May their merits and example win us the grace to love You above all things and in all things so that we may make our abode in Your own Sacred Heart. With You, for You and in You, may we assist and love our neighbour. Hear the prayers of St Gerard Majella on our behalf dear Lord, we beg. Who live and reign forever, amen
