Daily Virtue Quote – Pope Benedict XVI

"Let us first of all bring to mind the vast semantic range of the word 'love': we speak of love of country, love of one’s profession, love between friends, love of work, love between parents and children, love between family members, love of neighbor and love of God. Amid this multiplicity of meaning, however, one [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Thomas Aquinas

"This sacrament has of itself the power of bestowing grace… when the sacrament itself is really received, grace is increased, and the spiritual life perfected: yet in different fashion from the sacrament of Confirmation, in which grace is increased and perfected for resisting the outward assaults of Christ's enemies. But by this sacrament grace receives [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – Ven. Fulton Sheen

But this kind of tolerance is very dangerous, for it becomes intolerance as [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – Thomas a’ Kempis

Daily Eucharist Quote – St. John Vianney

"One must be suitably clothed, not richly clad, but respectably. It is not becoming in young people to make a display of vanity in going to receive a God humiliated and despised. My God! My God! what a contradiction: they seem to make no difference between the Holy Table and a ball or dance. It [...]
