Daily Virtue Quote – St. Peter Julian Eymard

"Humility endues you with the strength of God, and it is, moreover, the means of your sanctity. There is no saint here below who can rest, saying: 'I have reached the degree to which God calls me.' No, neither in the virtues nor in love does that ever come to pass. To possess a virtue [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Peter Julian Eymard

"Ah! why do we not place our perfection in prayer? Why do we not direct our studies, our virtues, to increase the state and the practice of prayer in ourselves? We employ our time and our graces in correcting some defects; but even should we not leave a single one, we must not pause there, [...]
