Daily Virtue Quote – St. Augustine

"For if we look at the matter a little more carefully, we shall see that even when a man dies faithfully and laudably for the truth’s sake, it is still death he is avoiding… He submits to the separation of soul and body, lest the soul be separated both from God and from the body, [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – St. John Vianney

"What love is there like to that of Jesus Christ? He chose for the institution of the Eucharist the eve of the day on which He was to be put to death! Men weave the darkest plots against Him, and He thinks only what is the most precious gift He can give them! They think [...]
