Daily Virtue Quote – Pope Benedict XVI

"Hope encourages reason and gives it the strength to direct the will.  It is already present in faith, indeed it is called forth by faith.  Charity in truth feeds on hope and, at the same time, manifests it.  As the absolutely gratuitous give of God, hope bursts into our lives as something not due to [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – Brother Lawrence

"That the whole substance of religion was faith, hope and charity; by the practice of which we become united to the will of God: that all besides is indifferent, and to be used as a means that we may arrive at our end, and be swallowed up therein, by faith and charity.  That all things [...]
