Goodness is something so simple: always to live for others, never to seek one's own advantage. Dag Hammarskjold

Ecclesiastes 3:12

I recognized that there is nothing better than to be glad and to do well during life.

 

A Daily Dose March 30, 2011


Understanding is the reward of faith. Therefore seek not to understand that you may believe, but believe that you may understand.

St. Augustine of Hippo

Romans 8:5-8

For those who live according to the flesh are concerned with the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the spirit with the things of the spirit.

The concern of the flesh is death, but the concern of the spirit is life and peace. For the concern of the flesh is hostility toward God; it does not submit to the law of God, nor can it; and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

I'm suffering very much, but am I suffering very well? That's the point!

St. Therese of Lisieux

But the LORD'S kindness is forever, toward the faithful from age to age. He favors the children's children of those who keep his covenant, who take care to fulfill its precepts.

You can't always get what you want. No, you can't always get what you want. But if you try sometimes you just might find, you can get what you need.Mick Jagger

Colossians 3:12-13

Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if one has a grievance against another; as the Lord has forgiven you, so must you also do.

In nothing do men approach so nearly to the gods as in doing good to men Cicero

Galatians 6:9-10

Let us not grow tired of doing good, for in due time we shall reap our harvest, if we do not give up. So then, while we have the opportunity, let us do good to all, but especially to those who belong to the family of the faith

One of the most dangerous temptations is the temptation to prepare to live, instead of living. Tolstoy

Philippians 2:14-16

Do everything without grumbling or questioning, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine like lights in the world, as you hold on to the word of life, so that my boast for the day of Christ may be that I did not run in vain or labor in vain.

The great method of prayer is to have none. If in going to prayer one can form in oneself a pure capacity for receiving the spirit of God, that will suffice for all method. St. Jane Frances de Chantal

Isaiah 55:6

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

A Daily Dose March 21, 2011


Christianity, if false, is of no importance; and if true, of infinite importance. The one thing it cannot be is moderately important.

C. S. Lewis

Revelation 3:15-16

I know your works; I know that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. ng.

There is a slowness in affairs which ripens them, and a slowness which rots them. Joseph Roux

Matthew 16:1-3

The Pharisees and Sadducees came and, to test him, asked him to show them a sign from heaven.

He said to them in reply, "In the evening you say, 'Tomorrow will be fair, for the sky is red'; and, in the morning, 'Today will be stormy, for the sky is red and threatening.' You know how to judge the appearance of the sky, but you cannot judge the signs of the times.

It would be easier for the world to survive without the sun than to do without Holy Mass. St. Pio

Matthew 26:26-28

While they were eating, Jesus took a loaf of bread, and after blessing it he broke it, gave it to the disciples, and said, 'Take, eat; this is my body.'
Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he gave it to them, saying, 'Drink from it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.'

If I saw myself as other people see me, I'd need an introduction to myself.

For as the Easter festival approaches, the greatest and most binding of fasts is kept, and its observance is imposed on all the faithful without exception; because no one is so holy that he ought not to be holier, nor so devout that he might not be more devout.Pope St. Leo the Great

Mark 2:21-22

No one sews a piece of unshrunken cloth on an old cloak. If he does, its fullness pulls away, the new from the old, and the tear gets worse.

Likewise, no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the skins are ruined. Rather, new wine is poured into fresh wineskins.

Run through all the words of the holy prayers [in Scripture], and I do not think that you will find anything in them that is not contained and included in the Lord's Prayer.St. Augustine

Matthew 6:9-13

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread;

and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors;

and do not subject us to the final test, but deliver us from the evil one.

Each of us has no need to wonder about what God’s will must be for us; his will for us is clearly revealed in every situation of every day, if only we could learn to view all things as he sees them and sends them to us.

Fr. Walter J. Ciszek, S.J.

James 1:16-18

Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers: all good giving and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no alteration or shadow caused by change. He willed to give us birth by the word of truth that we may be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

Today.

Not yesterday

Not tomorrow

Today.

Matthew 6:25, 27, 33-34

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life… Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span?

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides.

Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil.

It is proper for us to exercise with true discretion all the spiritual and temporal virtues. However, when the enemy sees that he cannot impede the servant of Christ from doing good, he will seek to entice her with doing too much. So exercise all the virtues in proper measure that the weapon of true and diligent discretion may be exercised by us for our salvation and for the praise of Christ.St. Catherine of Bologna

Deuteronomy 6:18

Do what is right and good in the sight of the LORD, that you may, according to his word, prosper, and may enter in and possess the good land which the LORD promised on oath to your fathers

O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall proclaim your praise.

If we look forward to receiving God's mercy, we can never fail to do good so long as we have the strength. For if we share with the poor, out of love for God, whatever he has given to us, we shall receive according to his promise a hundredfold in eternal happiness. What a fine profit, what a blessed reward!St. John of God

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.

The older I get the less likely I listen to what people say and the more I look at what they do. Andrew Carnegie

James 2:26

For just as a body without a spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.

 

A Daily DoseMarch 5, 2011


Grace has been given mystically to those who have been baptized into Christ; and it becomes active within them to the extent that they actively observe the commandments. Grace never ceases to help us secretly; but to do good–as far as lies in our power–depends on us.

St. Mark the Ascetic

2 Corinthians 9:8-9

Moreover, God is able to make every grace abundant for you, so that in all things, always having all you need, you may have an abundance for every good work.

As it is written: "He scatters abroad, he gives to the poor; his righteousness endures forever."

A Daily DoseMarch 4, 2011


The most powerful weapon to conquer the Devil is humility. For as he does not know at all how to employ it, neither does he know how to defend himself from it. St. Vincent de Paul

Matthew 23:11-12

The greatest among you must be your servant.

Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

 

A Daily DoseMarch 3, 2011


If we wish to serve God and love our neighbor well, we must manifest our joy in the service we render to Him and them. Let us open wide our hearts. It is Joy which invites us. Press forward and fear nothing.

St. Katharine Drexel

Romans 12:1-2

I urge you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, your spiritual worship. Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect.

A Daily DoseMarch 2, 2011


This faith of mine is a gift, for which I give thanks.
If you do not believe in God, you still encounter the same problems, but you cannot call upon God or faith to resolve them.

Robert J. Spitzer

Ephesians 2:8-10

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not from you; it is the gift of God; it is not from works, so no one may boast.

For we are his handiwork, created in Christ Jesus for the good works that God has prepared in advance, that we should live in them.

 

A Daily DoseMarch 1, 2011
