Daily Virtue Quote – St. Faustina

"However, in all these sufferings and struggles, I was not omitting Holy Communion. When it seemed to me that I should not communicate, I went, before Holy Communion, to the Directress and told her that I could not approach the Sacrament, because it seemed to me that I should not do so.

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Peter Julian Eymard

The vow of obedience consummates the sacrifice of the religious. It is the essential vow of religion. It alone might suffice, for it eminently comprises the others. It perfects the holocaust begun by poverty in the goods of fortune, and continued by chastity in those of the body, by offering to God the liberty, the [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – Pope Benedict XVI

She knows that she will only contribute to the salvation of the world if, rather than carrying out her own projects, she places [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Peter Julian Eymard

"How admirable is that obedience of Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament! It is unattended by glory, its perfection is not seen. It is almost always without honor.

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Francis de Sales

"Do not long after things afar off; such, I mean, as cannot happen till a distant time… these useless wishes take the place of such as I ought to have – namely, to be patient, resigned, self-denying, obedient, gentle under suffering – which are what God requires of me under the circumstances."
