Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Thomas Aquinas

"Hilary, in commenting on Mat. 26:17, held that Christ did not give His body and blood to Judas. And this would have been quite proper, if the malice of Judas be considered. But since Christ was to serve us as a pattern of justice, it was not in keeping with His teaching authority to sever [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Hildegard of Bingen

God to St. Hildegard in a vision: “You should give your alms to the poor as I mete out My grace to you. But let not those who receive alms take them vainly or avariciously.  What does this mean? There are many who love laziness and do not want to labor with their bodies to [...]
