Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Ignatius of Antioch

"Take ye heed, then, to have but one Eucharist. For there is one flesh of our Lord Jesus Christ, and one cup to [show forth] the unity of His blood; one altar; as there is one bishop, along with the presbytery and deacons, my fellow-servants: that so, whatsoever ye do, ye may do it according [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Francis de Sales

"If a word, we are like the Paphlagonian partridge, which has two hearts; for we have a very tender, pitiful, easy heart toward ourselves, and one which is hard, harsh, and strict toward our neighbor. We have two scales, one wherein to measure our own goods to the best advantage, and the other to weigh [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Catherine of Siena

"If sensual affection wants to love sensual things, the eye of understanding is moved in that direction. It takes for its object only passing things with selfish love, contempt for virtue, and love of vice, drawing from these pride and impatience.

Daily Virtue Quote – Pope Benedict XVI

"Love – caritas – will always prove necessary, even in the most just society. There is no ordering of the State so just that it can eliminate the need for a service of love… The State which would provide everything, absorbing everything into itself, would ultimately become a mere bureaucracy incapable of guaranteeing the very [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – Catechism of the Catholic Church

"To respond to this invitation we must prepare ourselves for so great and so holy a moment. St. Paul urges us to examine our conscience: 'Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Alphonsus Liguori

"O God, O incomprehensible ocean of love, since Thy condescension towards us is so great, that in order to dwell near us Thou descendest upon our altars, I propose often to visit Thee; I am determined, as often as I possibly can, to enjoy Thy most sweet Presence, which is the beatitude of the saints [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. John Climacus

"To be chaste is to put on the nature of an incorporeal being. Chastity is a supernatural denial of what one is by nature, so that a mortal and corruptible body is competing in a truly marvelous way with incorporeal spirits. A chaste man is someone who has driven out bodily love by means of [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – Pope Benedict XVI

"Sunday is thus the day when Christians rediscover the eucharistic form which their lives are meant to have. 'Living in accordance with the Lord's Day' means living in the awareness of the liberation brought by Christ and making our lives a constant self-offering to God, so that his victory may be fully revealed to all [...]
