Daily Eucharist Quote – Ven. Fulton Sheen

"The Church demands a certain amount of fasting before Communion. This is to remind us that the Eucharist is not only a sacrament of life, but also the sacrament of mortification. Only when we are stamped with the sign of the Cross will we be stamped with the glory of His Resurrection." Source: Ven. [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – Ven. Fulton Sheen

"Holy Communion is incorporation not only to the life of Christ, but also to His death. This second aspect is sometimes forgotten. St. Paul mentions it: 'So it is the Lord's death that you are heralding, whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, until he comes' (I Corinth. 11:26)... What He did in [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Therese of Lisieux

"I made up my mind to more serious mortification than ever. When I say mortification, I do not mean that sort of penance the Saints undertake. I was not like those grand souls who practice all kinds of penances from childhood. My mortification consisted in checking my self-will, keeping back an impatient word, doing little [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Peter Julian Eymard

"See in Jesus sacramental the virtues you ought to practise. Appropriate them to yourselves and complete them in yourselves. Yes, the Eucharistic virtues are incomplete in this sense, that Jesus can no longer perform their meritorious acts, and that He takes but their state. Thus, His Body can no longer give to the virtue of [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Francis de Sales

"When the soul is purged of the evil humors of sin, it experiences a ravenous hunger for spiritual things, and sets to work as one famished at all manner of spiritual exercises: mortification, penitence, humility, charity, prayer. Doubtless such an appetite is a good sign, but it behooves you to reflect whether you are able [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Peter Julian Eymard

"The two actions must be joined and never separated, filling our soul with love by prayer, and purifying ourselves exteriorly by mortification. It is easy to say, 'I love God,' but if this word is not followed by mortification, it is vain and unfounded. Self-love has quickly taken the place of the love of God." [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Faustina

“You commanded me to ask for these mortifications, but Mother Superior will not permit them.”  Jesus said, “I was here during your conversation with the Superior and know everything.  I don’t demand mortification from you, but obedience.  By obedience you give great glory to Me and gain merit for yourself.” Source: St. Faustina, Diary: [...]
