A DAILY DOSE      MONDAY, MARCH 23, 2015


My Lord and my God, remove far from me whatever keeps me from You.

My Lord and my God, confer on me whatever enables me to reach You.

My Lord and my God, free me from self and make me wholly Yours. Amen.

St. Nicholas of Flue


Psalm 124:2-3, 6-8

Had not the LORD been with us, when people rose against us, then they would have swallowed us alive, for their fury blazed against us.


A DAILY DOSE      SUNDAY, MARCH 22, 2015 


By your work you show what you love and what you know. When you observe true obedience with prudence and enthusiasm, it is clear that you wisely pick the most delightful and nourishing fruit of divine Scripture.

St. Bruno

 

Proverbs 19:2-3

Desire without knowledge is not good; and whoever acts hastily, blunders.

Their own folly leads people astray;in their hearts they rage against the LORD.

A DAILY DOSE      SATURDAY, MARCH 21, 2015


Always be faithful to God in keeping the promises made to Him and do not bother about the ridicule of the foolish. Know that the saints were always sneered at by the world and the worldly; and they have trampled and triumphed over the world and its maxims.

St. Pio of Pietrelcina

 

2 Chronicles 16:9

The eyes of the LORD roam over the whole earth, to encourage those who are devoted to him wholeheartedly.


A DAILY DOSE      FRIDAY, MARCH 20, 2015


Neither praise nor threats will distance me from God.

Blessed Clemens August von Galen

 

Romans 8:35-39

What will separate us from the love of Christ? Will anguish, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or the sword? As it is written: “For your sake we are being slain all the day; we are looked upon as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we conquer overwhelmingly through him who loved us.

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor present things, nor future things, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.


 

A DAILY DOSE      THURSDAY, MARCH 19, 2015


St. Joseph was a just man, a tireless worker, the upright guardian of those entrusted to his care. May he always guard, protect and enlighten families

St. Pope John Paul II

 

Matthew 2:13-15

Now after they had left, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, ‘Get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.’

Then Joseph got up, took the child and his mother by night, *and went to Egypt, and remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet, ‘Out of Egypt I have called my son.’

A DAILY DOSE      WEDNESDAY, MARCH 18, 2015


Prefer nothing to the love of Christ.

St. Benedict

 

Proverbs 8:17

I love those who love me,    and those who seek me diligently find me.

A DAILY DOSE      TUESDAY, MARCH 17, 2015


Our Lord does not come down from Heaven every day to lie in a golden ciborium. He comes to find another heaven which is infinitely dearer to him—the heaven of our souls, created in His Image, the living temples of the Adorable Trinity.

St. Therese of Lisieux

 

Philippians 3:20-21

But our citizenship is in heaven, and it is from there that we are expecting a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. He will transform the body of our humiliation so that it may be conformed to the body of His glory, by the power that also enables him to make all things subject to Himself.

A DAILY DOSE      MONDAY, MARCH 16, 2015


I bind to myself today God's Power to guide me, God's Might to uphold me, God's Wisdom to teach me...

Breastplate of St. Patrick

 

1 Corinthians 16:13

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.

A DAILY DOSE      SUNDAY, MARCH 15, 2015


Don't be anxious about what you have, but about what you are.

Pope St. Gregory the Great

 

2 Corinthians 5:17

So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!

A DAILY DOSE      SATURDAY, MARCH 14, 2015


If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world on fire!

St. Catherine of Siena

 

Luke 12:49

I came to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!

A DAILY DOSE      FRIDAY, MARCH 13, 2015


Living in fear keeps us from living in faith.

 

Psalm 56:3-4

O Most High, when I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I am not afraid; what can flesh do to me?

A DAILY DOSE      THURSDAY, MARCH 12, 2015


Faith expects from God what is beyond all expectation.

Andrew Murray

 

Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

A DAILY DOSE      WEDNESDAY, MARCH 11, 2015


Sometimes your only available transportation is a leap of faith.
Margaret Shepard

 

James 1:2

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds.

A DAILY DOSE      TUESDAY, MARCH 10, 2015


Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.

St. Jerome

 

Matthew 7:21

Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.

A DAILY DOSE      MONDAY, MARCH 9, 2015


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.

St. John of God

 

2 Samuel 22:33

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

A DAILY DOSE      SUNDAY, MARCH 8, 2015


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

Oswald Chambers

 

Psalm 55:17

Evening and morning, and at noon, I will pray and cry aloud; and He shall hear my voice.

A DAILY DOSE      SATURDAY, MARCH 7, 2015


If you don’t have time to pray and read the Scriptures, you are busier than God ever intended you to be.

 

Colossians 4:2

Persevere in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving

A DAILY DOSE      FRIDAY, MARCH 6, 2015


Even though knowledge is true, it is still not firmly established if unaccompanied by works. For everything is established by being put into practice.

St. Mark the Ascetic

 

2 Timothy 3:14-17

But as for you, continue in what you have learned and firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it, and how from childhood you have known the sacred writings that are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching*, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.

A DAILY DOSE      THURSDAY, MARCH 5, 2015


Heaven for me is hidden in a little Host where Jesus, my Spouse, is veiled for love. I go to that Divine Furnace to draw out life, And there my Sweet Savior listens to me night and day.

St. Therese of Lisieux

 

Galatians 2:20 

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave
