Virtue Quote: St. Augustine

"For if we look at the matter a little more carefully, we shall see that even when a man dies faithfully and laudably for the truth’s sake, it is still death he is avoiding… He submits to the separation of soul and body, lest the soul be separated both from God and from the body, [...]

Virtue Quote: Pope St. John Paul II

"When God-Yahweh says, 'It is not good that the man should be alone' (Gen 2:18), he affirms that, 'alone,' the man does not completely realize his essence. He realizes it only by existing 'with someone' – and, put even more deeply and completely, by existing 'for someone.'" -Pope St. John Paul II

Eucharist Quote: St. John Vianney

"What love is there like to that of Jesus Christ? He chose for the institution of the Eucharist the eve of the day on which He was to be put to death! Men weave the darkest plots against Him, and He thinks only what is the most precious gift He can give them! They think [...]

Virtue Quote: St. Faustina

"A disobedient soul will win no victory, even if the Lord Jesus Himself, in person, were to hear its confession. The most experienced confessor will be of no help whatsoever to such a soul. The disobedient soul exposes itself to great misfortunes; it will make no progress toward perfection, nor will it succeed in the [...]
