Daily Virtue Quote – St. Bernard of Clairvaux

"If you have eyes for the shortcomings of your neighbor and not for your own, no feeling of mercy will arise in you but rather indignation.  You will be more ready to judge than to help, to crush in the spirit of anger than to instruct in the spirit of gentleness.  'You who are spiritual, [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – St. John Vianney

"The visit to the Blessed Sacrament is a source of so much sweetness because we have in the tabernacle, the same God who is the source of happiness for the elect in heaven. The Eucharist becomes thus an earthly paradise. One asked a saint if it were hard for him to remain so long in [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Alphonsus Liguori

"O Divine Word ! O my own Jesus! I see Thee all sacrificed, all annihilated, and so to say destroyed on the altar, for my love. It is, then, but right that, as Thou sacrificest Thyself as a victim of love for me, I at least should consecrate myself wholly to Thee. Yes, my God [...]
