Where there is great love there are always miracles.

Willa Cather

 

Mark 12:31

"The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these." 


A Daily Dose   Wednesday, October 30, 2013


I do not understand the mystery of grace—only that it meets us where we are, but does not leave us where it found us.

Anne Lamott

 

2 Corinthians 4:15

Everything indeed is for you, so that the grace bestowed in abundance on more and more people may cause the thanksgiving to overflow for the glory of God.

A Daily Dose   Tuesday, October 29, 2013


Where there is no obedience, there is no virtue; there is neither goodness nor love. And where there is no love, there is no God. Without God, we cannot reach Heaven. These virtues form a ladder; if a step is missing, we fall down.

St. Padre Pio

 

Romans 4:7-8

Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sin is covered. Blessed is the one to whom the Lord shall not impute sin. 

A Daily Dose   Monday, October 28, 2013


Blessings can come in a number of ways. The Lord doesn't give you what you want; the Lord gives you what you need.

Eric Davis

 

Micah 6:8

You have been told, O mortal, what is good, and what the LORDrequires of you: only to do justice and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God.

A Daily Dose   Sunday, October 27, 2013


If God's Word is spoken by a priest who is filled with the fire of charity--the fire of love of God and neighbor--it will wound vices, kill sins, convert sinners, and work wonders.

St Anthony Mary Claret

 

1 Timothy 4:15-17

Even if you should have countless guides to Christ, yet you do not have many fathers, for I became your father in Christ Jesus through the gospel. Therefore, I urge you, be imitators of me. For this reason I am sending you Timothy, who is my beloved and faithful son in the Lord; he will remind you of my ways in Christ Jesus, just as I teach them everywhere in every church.

A Daily Dose   Saturday, October 26, 2013


The good man is like a tree planted by the waterside that will bring forth its fruit in due season, because when a soul is watered by charity, it brings forth good works seasonably and with discretion.

St. Francis de Sales

 

Jeremiah 17:7-8

Blessed are those who trust in the LORD; the LORD will be their trust. They are like a tree planted beside the waters that stretches out its roots to the stream: it does not fear heat when it comes, its leaves stay green; in the year of drought it shows no distress, but still produces fruit.

A Daily Dose   Friday, October 25, 2013


If we only have sense enough to leave everything to the guidance of God's hand, we should reach the highest peak of holiness.

Jean-Pierre de Caussade

 

Luke 22:42-43

”Father, if you are willing, take this cup away from me; still, not my will but yours be done.”

And to strengthen him an angel from heaven appeared to him.

Leave the broken, irreversible past in God's hands, and step out into the invincible future with Him.

Oswald Chambers

If we had all the facts we wouldn’t need faith.

Hayley C.

Faith is the realization of what is hoped for and evidence of things not seen.

A Daily Dose   Tuesday, October 22, 2013


I strive always in all things to understand as clearly as possible and follow the will of God, and this in the most perfect way.

Blessed Charles of Austria

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 

A Daily Dose   Monday, October 21, 2013


Evangelizing means bearing personal witness to the love of God, it is overcoming our selfishness, it is serving by bending down to wash the feet of our brethren, as Jesus did.

Pope Francis

 

John 13:14-15

I, therefore, the master and teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash one another’s feet.I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do.

A Daily Dose   Sunday, October 20, 2013


Our Lord knows well that I have labored all of my life to love Him myself, and to make others love Him.

St. Paul of the Cross

 

1 John 4:16

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.

A Daily Dose   Saturday, October 19, 2013


God uses broken things. It takes broken soil to produce a crop, broken clouds to give rain, broken grain to give bread, broken bread to give strength. It is the broken alabaster box that gives forth perfume.

Vance Havner

 

John 12:24

Amen, amen, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit.

 

A Daily Dose   Friday, October 18, 2013


A man who openly despises the accolades of this world and rejects all earthly glory must also practice self-denial. Such self-denial means that you never seek your own will but God's, using God's will as a sure guide.

St. Gregory of Nyssa

 

John 6:40

For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in him may have eternal life, and I shall raise him on the last day.

A Daily Dose   Thursday, October 17, 2013


Precious momenthow small in the eyes of my head and how great in those of my heart, the means whereby I receive small things from the Father who reigns in heaven! Everything that falls from there is very excellent, everything bears the mark of its maker.
Jean-Pierre de Caussade

 

Romans 8:6

The concern of the flesh is death, but the concern of the spirit is life and peace.

A Daily Dose   Wednesday, October 16, 2013


Prayer is an act of love, words are not needed. Even if sickness distracts from thoughts, all that is needed is the will to love.
St. Teresa of Avila

 

Lamentations 3:22-23

The LORD’s acts of mercy are not exhausted, his compassion is not spent; they are renewed each morning— great is your faithfulness!

A Daily Dose   Tuesday, October 15, 2013


We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

 

Psalm 30:3

O LORD, my God, I cried out to you for help and you healed me.

A Daily Dose   Monday, October 14, 2013


Christianity is not an excuse for complacency and laziness. Now that you are working for God you must work harder than ever at everything you do.

Mustard Seeds

 

Ephesians 4:22-24

You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

A Daily Dose  Sunday, October 13, 2013


Yes, we must learn the hard lesson of submission; and once this has been accomplished, everything that comes after will be rendered easy.

St. Elizabeth Ann Seaton

 

Psalm 27:1

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom should I fear? The LORD is my life’s refuge; of whom should I be afraid?

A Daily Dose  Wednesday, October 2, 2013


For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.

St. Thérèse of Lisieux

 

Psalm 148:15

The LORD is near to all who call upon him, to all who call upon him in truth.

A Daily Dose  Tuesday, October 1, 2013
