“There is nothing so great as the Eucharist. If God had something more precious, He would have given it to us”. - St John Vianney

The judge said that the mother “would suffer greater trauma from having a baby removed” to be adopted than from an abortion.

Lord have mercy.


"The loss of each soul plunges Me into mortal sadness. You always console Me when you pray for sinners. The prayer most pleasing to Me is for the conversion of sinners. Know, My daughter, that this prayer is always heard and answered."

The Diary of St. Faustina

"What, in short, is the purpose of grace - with the infused virtues that flow from it - but to sweeten the yoke of Christ, to facilitate the practice of virtue, to make you joyful in danger, and victorious in temptation?

Venerable Louis of Granada

"Do not forget the Creator - Christ tells us - and respect Creation! Perform your work by using properly the resources God has bestowed upon you! Transform his riches with the aid of science and technology, but do not squander them, do not be a heedless exploiter of the goods created! Neither destroy nor contaminate! Remember your neighbor, remember the poor! Think of future generations!

St. John Paul II

"You Christians have in your keeping a document with enough dynamite in it to blow the whole of civilization to bits; to turn society upside-down; to bring peace to a war-torn world. But you read it as if were just good literature and nothing else." - Gandhi

"Our Savior tells us in the Garden to pray - not that we be wealthy, not that we may enjoy abundant pleasures, not that something evil may befall our enemies, not that we may receive honors in this world. He tells us to pray that we may not enter in temptation. So, in His wisdom, Christ placed this one petition at the end of the prayer He'd previously taught His disciples … as if to serve as a summary of all the rest: "Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil" (Mt 6:13)

St. Thomas More

"The great saints worked for the glory of God but I'm only a little soul; I work for His pleasure. And let me assure you, God is much better than you believe. He is content with just a glance … or even just a sigh of love."

St. Therese of Lisieux

I don't say it enough, but I am always happy to explore these topics further.

In this case (the video or my comments) with Catholics, Protestants (which I was born into and remained for over 5 decades), and everyone else!

"Lesser temptations to anger, suspicion, jealousy, envy, frivolity, vanity, foolishness, deception, artificiality, and impure thoughts are a perpetual trial even to those who are most devout and resolute. So we must carefully and diligently prepare for this warfare. But be assured that every victory won over these little foes is like a precious stone in the crown of glory that God prepares for us in heaven."
St. Francis De Sales

"Something is expressed in Mary's Visitation to her cousin Elizabeth that has been lost in our time and it belongs to the heart of the Faith. It is the pure joy in recognition that the Word of God has become man. It is a self forgetful happiness that we see in David as he dances before the Ark. Only against this background can Marian devotion be understood. It is the blissful entering into the joy of the Magnificat by she who bears the true, indestructible and incorruptable Ark of ther Covenant."
Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

"The Savior promises the disciples the descent of the Holy Spirit, which God had announced of old by Joel (cf. JL 2:28), and power from above, that they might be strong and invincible, and without fear preach to men everywhere the divine mystery. And having blessed them he was carried up into heaven, that he might share the Father's throne even with the flesh that was united with him. It is he who will come in great glory to judge the living and the dead, and to give everyone according to his deeds."
St. Cyril of Alexandria

I would like to taste the "original" recipes, even though the monks say that their innovations make is tastier...


"It won't be long before I meet with discouragement; some remark of mine, quite innocently meant, will be taken up all wrong. But it isn't a waste of time, because my object in being kind, and especially to the less attractive ones, is to rejoice the heart of our Lord."
St. Therese of Lisieux

" Whatever temptations may trouble you, and whatever attraction to them you may feel, as long as your will refuses consent - not just to the temptation itself but also to the attraction - you need have no fear. God is not offended."

St. Frances De Sales
