Daily Virtue Quote – St. Peter Julian Eymard

"Again God's goodness shows itself here. He could have exacted of His creature absolute service without any recompense. But no.

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Francis de Sales

"The Angels on Jacob’s ladder had wings, yet nevertheless they did not fly, but went in due order up and down the steps of the ladder.  The soul which rises from out of sin to a devout life has been compared to the dawn, which does not banish darkness suddenly, but by degrees." Source: [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – Catechism of the Catholic Church

"The first announcement of the Eucharist divided the disciples, just as the announcement of the Passion scandalized them: 'This is a hard saying; who can listen to it?' The Eucharist and the Cross are stumbling blocks. It is the same mystery and it never ceases to be an occasion of division. 'Will you also go [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Augustine

"Pious humility enables us to submit to what is above us; and nothing is more exalted above us than God; and therefore humility, by making us subject to God, exalts us.

Daily Eucharist Quote – Ven. Fulton Sheen

"There is somewhat the same relationship existing between Baptism and the Eucharist, as there is between faith and charity or perfect love.

Daily Virtue Quote – Pope St. John Paul II

Daily Eucharist Quote – St. John Vianney

If we could conceive a little of the grandeur and happiness of Communion, we would desire life only to have the happiness of making Jesus Christ our daily bread. All created things would be as nothing." Source: St. John Vianney, The Meditations of the [...]
