Daily Virtue Quote – Thomas a’ Kempis

"Now, all our peace in this miserable life is found in humbly enduring suffering rather than in being free from it. He who knows best how to suffer will enjoy the greater peace, because he is the conqueror of himself, the master of the world, a friend of Christ, and an heir of heaven." [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Faustina

Daily Virtue Quote – Ven. Fulton Sheen

"Any great love… makes the lover indifferent to physical hardships and sordid surroundings. The hovel of a man and wife who love each other is a far more joyous place than the rich apartment of the couple who have lost their love.  Love of God begets an even greater indifference to our environment: a saint [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – Thomas a’ Kempis

"Learn, then, to suffer little things now that you may not have to suffer greater ones in eternity.  Prove here what you can bear hereafter.  If you can suffer only a little now, how will you be able to endure eternal torment?  If a little suffering makes you impatient now, what will hell fire do?  [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Catherine of Siena

"To what dangers and sufferings people will submit themselves on land and sea to acquire great wealth, to return later to their own city with pleasures and honors!  Yet they neither try not care to acquire the virtues or to suffer the least bit of pain to have them, though these are the riches of [...]
