This year's roster of my precious Saints



"Pain is never permanent."

-------------------------St. Teresa of Avila


"Desire to be what you are and to be good at what you are; all your thoughts should be directed to perfecting yourself in this. Be ready to carry all the crosses you will be asked to bear in the process. Believe me, it is a great secret, but one that is least understood in the spiritual life, because everyone loves to do his own thing and few want to live according to the plan and wishes of Our Lord."

-----------------------St. Francis de Sales


"Lose yourself wholly; and the more you lose, the more you will find."

--------------------St. Catherine of Siena


"If we wish to reach eternal life, even as we avoid the torments of hell, then while there is still time, while we are in this body and have time to accomplish all these things by the light of life we must run and do now what will profit us forever."

---------------St. Benedict


"Jesus whom I know as my Redeemer cannot be less than God."

---------------------------St. Athanasius


"Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired."

---------------------Blessed Teresa of Calcutta


"...God is more nearer to us than our own soul, and in falling and rising we are ever preciously kept in one love. God's dealings with us are in homeliness and courtesy for love maketh might and wisdom fully meek to us. With this we must correspond to God by a happy confidence; failing of comfort is the most mischief into which the soul can fall."

---------------Blessed Julian of Norwich

Happy All Saints' Day, ya'll!
