A DAILY DOSE      FRIDAY, MAY 30, 2014


Having been told 'Look around you,' and having also been told 'Pray always,' perhaps we could combine these two charges and use our eyes as a means of perpetual adoration.

Edward M. Hays

 

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

A DAILY DOSE      THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2014


You can give without loving, but you can't love without giving.

Amy Carmichael

 

Romans 13:8

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law. 

A DAILY DOSE      WEDNESDAY, MAY 28, 2014


One of the chief means of our salvation is perseverance in mental prayer. It is so powerful a one that I know of no other way of attaining to perfection. If we are proficient in that exercise we need never fear; but if we neglect it let us dread the consequences, for we run a great risk of losing our souls.

St. John Baptist Rossi

 

Psalm 145:18-19

The LORD is near to all who call upon him, to all who call upon him in truth. He fulfills the desire of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them

A DAILY DOSE      TUESDAY, MAY 27, 2014


Learn who you are in the eyes of God.

St. Eugene de Mazenod

 

1 John 4:10

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

A DAILY DOSE      MONDAY, MAY 26, 2014


In honor, glory and sacrifice, many have come before; many shall come hence.

None though have come as the One, Jesus Christ, who gave us all we have and all that we are today.


John 15:13

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

A DAILY DOSE      SUNDAY, MAY 25, 2014

God is the great giver.

We are blessed that He is.

But whoever obeys me dwells in security, in peace, without fear of harm.

A DAILY DOSE      SATURDAY, MAY 24, 2014


Serve and follow-follow and serve.

There is no better invitation.

Let's get busy.

Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there also will my servant be. The Father will honor whoever serves me.

A DAILY DOSE      FRIDAY, MAY 23, 2014


One of the chief means of our salvation is perseverance in mental prayer. It is so powerful a one that I know of no other way of attaining to perfection. If we are proficient in that exercise we need never fear; but if we neglect it let us dread the consequences, for we run a great risk of losing our souls.

St. John Baptist Rossi


Psalm 4:2

Answer me when I call, my saving God. When troubles hem me in, set me free; take pity on me, hear my prayer.

A DAILY DOSE      THURSDAY, MAY 22, 2014


The opposite of joy is not sorrow. It is unbelief.

Leslie Weatherhead


Mark 9:23-24

Jesus said to him, “‘If you can!’ Everything is possible to one who has faith.”Then the boy’s father cried out, “I do believe, help my unbelief!

A DAILY DOSE      WEDNESDAY, MAY 21, 2014


Those who have abandoned themselves to God always lead mysterious lives and receive from God exceptional and miraculous gifts by means of the most ordinary, natural and chance experiences in which there appears to be nothing unusual. The simplest sermon, the most banal conversations, the least erudite books become sources of knowledge and wisdom to these souls by virtue of God’s purpose. This is why they carefully pick up the crumbs which clever minds tread underfoot, for to them everything is precious and a source of enrichment. 

Jean-Pierre de Caussade, S.J

 

John 15:4

Remain in me, as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me.

A DAILY DOSE      TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2014


Whenever the divine favor chooses someone to receive a special grace, or to accept a lofty vocation, God adorns the person chosen with all the gifts of the Spirit needed to fulfill the task at hand.

St. Bernardine of Siena

 

Romans 5:1-2

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God.

A DAILY DOSE      MONDAY, MAY 19, 2014


Faith is the most powerful of all forces operating in humanity and when you have it in depth nothing can get you down.

Norman Vincent Peale


Matthew 9:36

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

A DAILY DOSE      SUNDAY, MAY 18, 2014   


God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.

 

Romans 15:13

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope. 

A DAILY DOSE      SATURDAY, MAY 17, 2014   


Meditate well on this: Seek God above all things.

St. Paschal Baylon

Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and, having done everything, to hold your ground.

A DAILY DOSE      THURSDAY, MAY 15, 2014


If we really loved the good God, we should make it our joy and happiness to come and spend a few moments to adore Him, and ask Him for the grace of forgiveness; and we should regard those moments as the happiest of our lives.

St. John Vianney

 

1 John 1:7

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

Prayer is a means of bringing you to a point where you will accept what God wants.

Norman Vincent Peale


1 John 5:14

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

A DAILY DOSE    TUESDAY, MAY 13, 2014


Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.

Pope John XXIII

Romans 8:25-27

But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait with endurance. In the same way, the Spirit too comes to the aid of our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit itself intercedes with inexpressible groanings. And the one who searches hearts knows what is the intention of the Spirit, because it intercedes for the holy ones according to God’s will.

A DAILY DOSE    MONDAY, MAY 12, 2014

A DAILY DOSE    SATURDAY, MAY 10, 2014


To try to pray is to pray. You can't fail at it. It's the only human endeavor I can think of where trying is doing.

Rick Hamlin


Psalm 66:20

Blessed be God, who did not reject my prayer and refuse his mercy.

A DAILY DOSE    FRIDAY, MAY 9, 2014


Go often to Holy Communion. Go very often! This is your one remedy.

St. Therese of Lisieux

 

John 6:53

Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you.

A DAILY DOSE    THURSDAY, MAY 8, 2014


If angels could be jealous of men, they would be so for one reason: Holy Communion.

St. Maximilian Kolbe

 

Luke 22:19

Then he took the bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which will be given for you; do this in memory of me.”

A DAILY DOSE    WEDNESDAY, MAY 7, 2014


Complain as little as possible of your wrongs, for as a general rule you may be sure that complaining is sin ... because self-love always magnifies our injuries.

St. Hilary of Arles

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

We cannot become more like Jesus Christ and stay just as we are.

A DAILY DOSE    SATURDAY, MAY 3, 2014


Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself.

St. Francis de Sales

 

1 Thessalonians 5:14-15

We urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, cheer the fainthearted, support the weak, be patient with all.  See that no one returns evil for evil; rather, always seek what is good both for each other and for all.

A DAILY DOSE    FRIDAY, MAY 2, 2014


The risen Jesus accompanies us on our way and enables us to recognize him as the disciples of Emmaus did in the breaking of the bread. May he find us watchful, ready to recognize his face and to run to our brothers and sisters with the Good News…we have seen the Lord.

Pope St. John Paul II

 

2 Timothy 1:9-10

He saved us and called us to a holy life, not according to our works but according to his own design and the grace bestowed on us in Christ Jesus before time began, but now made manifest through the appearance of our savior Christ Jesus, who destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.

A DAILY DOSE    THURSDAY, MAY 1, 2014


Some who seek Him are blamed, others who do are commended; therefore, let us seek for Christ, that He may be ours, that we may keep Him, and not that we may slay Him.

St. Augustine

 

John 3:33-36

Whoever does accept his testimony certifies that God is trustworthy. For the one whom God sent speaks the words of God. He does not ration his gift of the Spirit. The Father loves the Son and has given everything over to him.
