Virtue Quote: St. Peter Julian Eymard

"When there is question of working on one's self, a man experiences difficulty, he soon finds that he always does enough.

Virtue Quote: St. Faustina

"A soul does not benefit as it should from the sacrament of confession if it is not humble. Pride keeps it in darkness. The soul neither knows how, nor it is willing, to prove with precision the depths of its own misery. It puts on a mask and avoids everything that might bring it recovery." [...]

"You must seek earnestly the grace of devotion, ask for it fervently, await it patiently and hopefully, receive it gratefully, guard it humbly, cooperate with it carefully and leave to God, when it comes, the length and manner of the heavenly visitation.

Virtue Quote: St. Cyril of Jerusalem

"Let all vain ornament be banished, and every hurtful glance, and all wanton gait, and every flowing robe, and perfume enticing to pleasure.
