Quotes of The Week #3
©2011 James Dacey, Jr. SFO
Another incredible week of praying and sharing and help each other get closer to our Lord. I really enjoy sharing quotes and insight and wisdom I come across in books, and research. I am so happy so many come here on Saturday's for an easy reference for the weeks quotes; and even if you missed them, they are all here every Saturday.
"To conclude: charity and devotion differ no more one from another than the fire does from the flame; for charity is a spiritual fire which, when inflamed, is called devotion." ~St. Francis de Sales
"No earthly pleasures, no kingdoms of this world can benefit me in any way. I prefer death in Christ Jesus to power over the farthest limits of the earth. He who died in place of us is the one object of my quest. He who rose for our sakes is my one desire." ~Saint Ignatius of Antioch
"My Jesus, how good it is to love you! Let me be like your disciples on Mount Tabor, seeing nothing else but you, my Savior. Let us be as two friends, neither of whom can bear to offend the other. Amen."
~St. John Vianney
"Can you imagine how incredible it would be if, in the world we live in; everyone lived their lives with what Jesus told us, are the two greatest commandments. Love God first and foremost, and everyone else like ourselves." ~Jim Dacey Jr SFO
"Our wish, our object, our chief preoccupation must be to form Jesus in ourselves, to make his spirit, his devotion, his affections, his desire, and his disposition live and reign there." ~Saint John Eudes
"To love God as He ought to be loved, we must be detached from all temporal love. We must love nothing but Him, or if we love anything else, we must love it only for His sake." ~Saint Peter Claver
"The cross: it is the cross he must carry for there is nothing more necessary, more useful, more agreeable and more glorious than suffering for Jesus Christ." ~THE FRIENDS OF THE CROSS
~St. Louis De Montfort
"The Hail Mary is dew falling from heaven to make the soul fruitful. It is a pure kiss of love we give to Mary. It is a crimson rose, a precious pearl that we offer to her. It is a cup of ambrosia, a divine nectar that we offer her." ~TRUE DEVOTION TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN
~St. Louis de Montfort
"Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies."
~Mother Teresa of Calcutta
“Never be afraid of loving the Blessed Virgin too much. You can never love her more than Jesus did.” ~Saint Maximilian Kolbe
"When our hands have touched spices, they give fragrance to all they handle. Let us make our prayers pass through the hands of the Blessed Virgin. She will make them fragrant." ~Saint John Marie Vianney
"The Rosary is a powerful weapon to put the demons to flight and to keep oneself from sin. If you desire peace in your hearts, in your homes, and in your country, assemble each evening to recite the Rosary. Let not even one day pass without saying it, no matter how burdened you may be with many cares and labors." ~Pope Pius XI
"Ever since Calvary, all men were her children. She loved them with a Mother’s tenderness and longed for their supreme good as for her own; therefore, she was consumed with the desire to make Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament known to all, to inflame all hearts with His love, to see them enchained to His loving service." ~St. Peter Julian Eymard
"Jesus, I trust in You."
Your brother in Christ Jesus & His Most Blessed Mother,
