You must never treat anyone unmercifully. If you think someone is not worthy of your mercy, you should realize that you don't deserve mercy either. St. Josemaria Escriva

Luke 1:49-50

The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name.

His mercy is from age to age to those who fear him.

Psalm 119:114

You are my refuge and shield; in your word I hope.

A Daily Dose April 28, 2011


For I do not seek to understand in order to believe, but I believe in order to understand. For I believe this: unless I believe, I will not understand.

St. Anselm of Canterbury

John 6:54

Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day.

First keep the peace within yourself, then you can also bring peace to others

Thomas a Kempis

Job 22:21-23

Come to terms with him to be at peace. In this shall good come to you:

Receive instruction from his mouth, and lay up his words in your heart.

If you return to the Almighty, you will be restored; if you put iniquity far from your tent

The Gospels do not explain Easter; Easter explains the Gospels.

J.S. Whale

Luke 24:1-3

At daybreak on the first day of the week they took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb; but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.

Thank you JESUS for opening the gates of HEAVEN for us. Amen.

Thank you JESUS for opening the gates of HEAVEN for us. Amen.

Thank you JESUS for opening the gates of HEAVEN for us. Amen.

Romans 6:8-11

If, then, we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him. We know that Christ, raised from the dead, dies no more; death no longer has power over him.

As to his death, he died to sin once and for all; as to his life, he lives for God.

Consequently, you too must think of yourselves as (being) dead to sin and living for God in Christ Jesus.

Rely less on words. Always remember that speech is of the senses. So make it your servant, never your Master. God Calling

God speaks in the silence of the heart. Listening is the beginning of prayer.

Blessed Mother Teresa

1 Thessalonians 4:10-12

…and indeed you do love all the brothers and sisters throughout Macedonia. But we urge you, beloved, to do so more and more, to aspire to live quietly, to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we directed you, so that you may behave properly towards outsiders and be dependent on no one.

And Jesus loved us, and poured out His own blood for us to wash away our sins.

LOH, Ant. 2

Philippians 2:7-11

Rather, He emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance, He humbled Himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross.

Because of this, God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Among all the works of God’s mercy, dearly-beloved, which from the beginning have been bestowed upon man's salvation, none is more wondrous, and none more sublime, than that Christ was crucified for the world.

Pope Saint Leo the Great

Colossians 1:12-14

…giving thanks to the Father, who has made you fit to share in the inheritance of the holy ones in light. He delivered us from the power of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Character is easier kept than recovered.

Thomas Paine

James 1:2-5

Consider it all joy, my brothers, when you encounter various trials, for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. And let perseverance be perfect, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. But if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and he will be given it.

A Daily Dose April 18, 2011


Our Lord never once spoke of His death without speaking of His resurrection. The very wounds He received He now carries as scars. He carries scars so that Thomas, touching them, could be cured of his doubt; scars that He will make appear on the Last Day when He comes to judge, scars that will make us all rejoice that He gave us a "thorn in the flesh". Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

2 Corinthians 12:6-7

Although if I should wish to boast, I would not be foolish, for I would be telling the truth. But I refrain, so that no one may think more of me than what he sees in me or hears from me because of the abundance of the revelations. Therefore, that I might not become too elated, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, an angel of Satan, to beat me, to keep me from being too elated.

Pray - period!

Don't expect anything. Or better, expect nothing.

Prayer cleanses us of expectations and allows holy will, providence, and life itself an entry. What could be more worth the effort or the non-effort?

Thomas Moore

Ephesians 6:18

With all prayer and supplication, pray at every opportunity in the Spirit. To that end, be watchful with all perseverance and supplication for all the holy ones

How great is our God.

He wraps Himself in Light. Darkness tries to hide. It trembles at His voice.

How great is our God.

Name above all names. Worthy of all praise.

How great is our God.

Chris Tomlin, How Great is Our God

Psalm 96:4-7

For great is the LORD and highly to be praised, to be feared above all gods.

For the gods of the nations all do nothing, but the LORD made the heavens.

Splendor and power go before him; power and grandeur are in his holy place.

Give to the LORD, you families of nations, give to the LORD glory and might

You can tell the size of your God by looking at the size of your worry list. The longer your list, the smaller your God.

My confidence is placed in God who does not need our help for accomplishing his designs. Our single endeavor should be to give ourselves to the work and to be faithful to him, and not to spoil his work by our shortcomings.

St. Isaac Jogues

Psalm 22:5-6

In You our ancestors trusted; they trusted and You rescued them.

To You they cried out and they escaped; in You they trusted and were not disappointed.

Wisdom is becoming to peacemakers, in whom there is no movement of rebellion, but only obedience to reason. St. Augustine

Mark 12:24-27

At the resurrection, when they arise, whose wife will she be? For all seven had been married to her.

Jesus said to them, "Are you not misled because you do not know the scriptures or the power of God? When they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but they are like the angels in heaven.

As for the dead being raised, have you not read in the Book of Moses, in the passage about the bush, how God told him, 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'?

He is not God of the dead but of the living. You are greatly misled."

German Proverb

When God loves me, He desires nothing else than to be loved by me. He loves me in order that I may love Him because He knows well that all who love Him, find in this very love their Joy and happiness.

St. Bernard of Clairvaux

1 John 3:1-2

See what love the Father has bestowed on us that we may be called the children of God. Yet so we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God's children now; what we shall be has not yet been revealed. We do know that when it is revealed we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.

No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends.

Matthew 13:13-16

This is why I speak to them in parables, because 'they look but do not see and hear but do not listen or understand.'

Isaiah's prophecy is fulfilled in them, which says: 'You shall indeed hear but not understand you shall indeed look but never see. Gross is the heart of this people, they will hardly hear with their ears, they have closed their eyes, lest they see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and be converted, and I heal them.'

"But blessed are your eyes, because they see, and your ears, because they hear.
