A Daily Dose   Wednesday, July 31, 2013


From the altar of the Lord I go to the altar of my work. It is Christ whom we must proclaim through our lives, to him we offer the sacrifice of our own will.

Blessed Zdenka Schelingová

 

2 Samuel 22:33

It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect.

A Daily Dose   Tuesday, July 30, 2013


Mildness overcomes anger, meekness extinguishes fury... patience is the scourge of impatience, gentle words vanquish quarrelsomeness, and humility prostrates pride.

St. Peter Chrysologus

 

1 Corinthians 2:13

This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words.

A Daily Dose   Monday, July 29, 2013


It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.

Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta

 

Psalm 69:6-7

God, you know my folly; my faults are not hidden from you. Let those who wait in hope for you, LORD of hosts, not be shamed because of me. Let those who seek you, God of Israel, not be disgraced because of me.


A Daily Dose   Sunday, July 28, 2013


Let us remember that love lives through sacrifice and is nourished by giving. Let's remember that not everything which is good and beautiful pertains to essential love, because even without those other things love can be present.

St. Maximilian Kolbe

 

Ephesians 5:1-2

So be imitators of God, as beloved children, and live in love, as Christ loved us and handed himself over for us as a sacrificial offering to God for a fragrant aroma.

A Daily Dose   Saturday, July 27, 2013


Theology is knowing truth about God. That's important, but not as important as knowing God; just as knowing things about your friend is not as important as knowing your friend.

Peter Kreeft

 

John 17:3

Now this is eternal life, that they should know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.

 

A Daily Dose   Friday, July 26, 2013


He who wants to win the world for Christ must have the courage to come in conflict with it.

Blessed Titus Brandsma

 

John 16:33

I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.

A Daily Dose   Thursday, July 25, 2013


Every step on the road to holiness is a step of sacrifice in the performance of one's mission in life.

Servant of God Cardinal Francis Xavier Nguyen Van Thuan

 

Mark 8:34-35

He summoned the crowd with his disciples and said to them, “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and that of the gospel will save it.

A Daily Dose   Wednesday, July 24, 2013


There is a passage in Scripture which states: ‘With the innocent man you will be innocent, and with the chosen one you will be chosen also; likewise with the perverse you will deal perversely.’ Devote yourselves, then, to the innocent and the just; they are God’s chosen ones.

Pope Saint Clement

 

Matthew 12:30-31

Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. Therefore, I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven people, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.

A Daily Dose   Tuesday, July 23, 2013


Prayer is the exercise of drawing on the grace of God.
Oswald Chambers

1 Corinthians 14:15
So what is to be done? I will pray with the spirit, but I will also pray with the mind. I will sing praise with the spirit, but I will also sing praise with the mind.

A Daily Dose   Monday, July 22, 2013


If you begin to live life looking for the God that is all around you, every moment becomes a prayer.

Frank Bianco

 

Isaiah 55:6

Seek the LORD while he may be found, call upon him while he is near.

A Daily Dose    Sunday, July 21, 2013


You don't have to try some things to know that you don't like them. You don't have to do some things to know that they are wrong.

Mustard Seeds

 

1 Corinthians 10:13

No trial has come to you but what is human. God is faithful and will not let you be tried beyond your strength; but with the trial he will also provide a way out, so that you may be able to bear it.

A Daily Dose    Saturday, July 20, 2013


To be pleased at correction and reproofs shows that one loves the virtues which are contrary to those faults for which he is corrected and reproved. And, therefore, it is a great sign of advancement in perfection.

St. Francis de Sales

 

Proverbs 11:25

The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed; those who help others are helped.

A Daily Dose    Friday, July 19, 2013


Ultimately, prayer will determine the quality of the relationships you have with your employees, your customers, and yourself.

Cher & Bil Horton


Matthew 18:19

When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action.

A Daily Dose    Thursday, July 18, 2013


As much as we would like to hear from God upon occasion, it would be in our best interest that He hears from us first… or at least in response as He calls.

 

Psalm 86:5-7

Lord, you are good and forgiving, most merciful to all who call on you. LORD, hear my prayer; listen to my cry for help. On the day of my distress I call to you, for you will answer me.

A Daily Dose    Wednesday, July 17, 2013


If you have not chosen the kingdom of God, it will make in the end no difference what you have chosen instead. Those are hard words to take. Does it matter to a man dying in a desert by which choice of route he missed the only well? 

C.S. Lewis


Matthew 10:26

Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.

A Daily Dose    Tuesday, July 16, 2013


Sometimes the Lord rides out the storm with us; other times He calms the restless sea around us.

Most of all, He calms the storm inside us in our deepest inner soul.

Lloyd John Ogilvie

 

John 14:27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

A Daily Dose    Monday, July 15, 2013


Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art… It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.

C. S. Lewis

 

Proverbs 17:17

A friend is a friend at all times, and a brother is born for the time of adversity.

A Daily Dose    Saturday, July 13, 2013


Pray with great confidence, with confidence based upon the goodness and infinite generosity of God and upon the promises of Jesus Christ. God is a spring of living water which flows unceasingly into the hearts of those who pray.

St. Louis de Montfort

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.

A Daily Dose    Friday, July 12, 2013


Women don't want to hear what men think. Women want to hear what they think—in a deeper voice.

Bill Cosby

He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord.

A Daily Dose   Thursday, July 11, 2013


What, dearest brothers, can be sweeter to us than this voice of the Lord inviting us?

St. Benedict

With firm purpose you maintain peace; in peace, because of our trust in you. Trust in the LORD forever! For the LORD is an eternal Rock.

A Daily Dose   Wednesday, July 10, 2013


For all the misunderstandings and even deliberate attacks on prayer, one fact is certain—people pray.

Don M. Aycock

 

Psalm 86:6-7

LORD, hear my prayer; listen to my cry for help. On the day of my distress I call to you, for you will answer me.

A Daily Dose    Tuesday, July 9, 2013


If our salvation depended only on ourselves, we should have much to fear; but as it is in the hands of God, we can tranquilly repose in Him.

St. Paul of the Cross

 

Psalm 4:9

In peace I will lie down and fall asleep, for you alone, LORD, make me secure.

A Daily Dose    Monday, July 8, 2013


The person who is filled with the Holy Spirit speaks in different languages. These different languages are different ways of witnessing to Christ, such as humility, poverty, patience and obedience.

St. Antony of Pauda

 

1 Peter 4:10-11

As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace. Whoever preaches, let it be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with the strength that God supplies, so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

A Daily Dose    Sunday, July 7, 2013


Forgiveness is love in its noblest form… may today be the day Christ’s healing presence be alive in you and shared in the lives of others.

 

Ephesians 4:32

And be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving one another as God has forgiven you in Christ.

A Daily Dose   Saturday, July 6, 2013


Since God can keep working in you, and He knows how to use all the ways, all the paths, all the means for His purpose; and since He has given you free will—it is not His fault if you make no progress.

St. Anthony Mary Zaccaria
