Daily Virtue Quote – Pope Benedict XVI

"Mary’s greatness consists in the fact that she wants to magnify God, not herself. She is lowly: her only desire is to be the handmaid of the Lord (cf. Lk 1:38, 48). 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. Who in the world reflects on it, even the Christian even the pious soul? It is humiliated, since He obeys even the sacrilegious, the apostate, the soul [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Peter Julian Eymard

"Do not obey your Superiors because they are good, or pious, or learned. That would be to obey the creature, a natural obedience worthless for heaven. Never obey through human fear of the person or of the reprimand. That would be to obey as a beast deprived of reason That would be humiliating obedience worthy [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Faustina

"All the sisters should respect the Superior as the Lord Jesus himself, as I mentioned when speaking about the vow of obedience. They should behave toward her with childlike trust, and should never murmur or find fault with her commands, as this is very displeasing to God." Source: St. Faustina, Diary: Divine Mercy in [...]

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." Source: St. [...]

"Man is thus exceedingly dear to God, Who made him truly in His own image and likeness; he was to exercise all the virtues in the perfection of holiness, as indeed God formed all creatures to do, and to work in humble obedience to do acts of virtue, and so to fulfill the function of [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Catherine of Siena

"Thus it is in every respect dangerous to be content with mediocre obedience. Such obedience is cold, very burdensome, and very painful. Because it seems to the cold heart wearisome to carry it, these souls bear great burdens with little fruit. They sin against the perfection into which they entered and which they are obliged [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Catherine of Siena

"The source of this pride is their selfish love for themselves. Everything here is the exact opposite of what I have told you about true obedience. How can these wretches, bereft of charity, be otherwise than in pain? They are forced to bow the head of their will while pride holds it high. Their every [...]
