Daily Virtue Quote – St. Therese of Lisieux

"I see now that true charity consists in bearing with the faults of those about us, never being surprised at their weaknesses, but edified at the least sign of virtue.  I see above all that charity must not remain hidden in the bottom of our hearts, for 'no man lighteth a candle and putteth it [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Thomas Aquinas

"Christ is contained in this sacrament, and He compares Himself to a grain of wheat, saying (Jn. 12:24): 'Unless the grain of wheat falling into the ground die, itself remaineth alone.'
