Love is the most beautiful sentiment the Lord has put into the soul of men and women.
St. Gianna Molla 

 

Psalm 63:1-4

O God, you are my God, I seek you, my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.

So I will bless you as long as I live; I will lift up my hands and call on your name."

When Christ who is your life is revealed, then you also will be revealed with him in glory.

Faith in action is love.

Love in action is service.

St. Teresa of Calcutta

 

James 2:14-18

What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him?If a brother or sister has nothing to wear and has no food for the day, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, keep warm, and eat well,” but you do not give them the necessities of the body, what good is it? So also faith of itself, if it does not have works, is dead. Indeed someone may say, “You have faith and I have works.” Demonstrate your faith to me without works, and I will demonstrate my faith to you from my works.

A DAILY DOSE     TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2017


Learn to hate your faults, but to hate them calmly 

St Padre Pio 

 

Proverbs 28:13 

Those who conceal their sins do not prosper, but those who confess and forsake them obtain mercy.

A DAILY DOSE     MONDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2017


Scattered about the entire earth, your mother the Church is tormented by the assaults of error. She is also afflicted by the laziness and indifference of so many of the children she carries around in her bosom as well as by the sight of so many of her members growing cold, while she becomes less able to help her little ones. Who then will give her the necessary help she cries for if not her children and other members to whose number you belong?

Saint Augustine

Be kind, for everyone you meet is engaged in a battle.
