Saintly Wisdom

“Men do not fear a powerful, hostile army as the powers of Hell fear the Name and protection of Mary.”- Saint Bonaventure

“I ask you to consider that Our Lord Jesus Christ is your true Head and that you are a member of His Body.  He belongs to you as the head belongs to the body.  All that is His is yours: breath, heart, body, soul and all His faculties.  All of these you must use as if they belonged to you, so that in serving Him you may give Him praise, love and glory.”- Saint John Eudes

“Since Jesus has gone to Heaven now, I can only follow the traces He has left behind.  But how bright these traces are!  How fragrant and divine!  I have only to glance at the Gospels; at once this fragrance from the Life of Jesus reaches me and I know which way to run: to the lowest, not the highest place!”- Saint Therese of Lisieux

“Can there be a more fitting pursuit in youth or a more valuable possession in old age than a knowledge of Holy Scripture?  In the midst of storms it will preserve you from the dangers of shipwreck and guide you to the shore of an enchanting paradise and the ever-lasting bliss of the Angels.”- Saint Boniface

“Know that our faith is strengthened by the resurrection of Christ.  The Passion of Christ represents the misery of our present life, while the resurrection of Christ gives us a brilliant glimpse of the happiness of the future life.  Let us apply ourselves energetically in the present life and hope in the future.  Now is the time for painful struggle; then will come the recompense.  Those who are lazy about carrying out their work will be brazenly impudent if they expect the recompense.”- Saint Agustine

“He will provide the way and the means, such as you could never have imagined.  Leave it all to Him, let go of yourself, lose yourself on the Cross and you will find yourself entirely.”- Saint Catherine of Sienna

“O my God, fill my soul with holy joy, courage and strength to serve You.  Enkindle Your Love in me and then walk with me along the next stretch of road before me.”- Sr. Benedicta of the Cross- Edith Stein

“He who labors as he prays lifts his heart to God with his hands.”- Saint Benedict of Nursia
