Blessed Paul VI

Daily Catholic Quote — from Blessed Paul VI

“The world calls for and expects from us simplicity of life, the spirit of prayer, charity towards all, especially towards the lowly and the poor, obedience and humility… Without this mark of holiness, our word will have difficulty in touching the heart of modern man.

St. Jean-Baptiste Marie Vianney, Cure d’Ars

Daily Catholic Quote — from St. John Vianney

“My dear brethren, I call that man bad company who is without religion, who does not concern himself with either the commandments of God or those of the Church, who does not recognize Lent or Easter, who seldom comes to church or, if he does come, then only to scandalize others by his irreligious ways.

Daily Reflection — God, Our Refuge

“O Lord, you have been our refuge, from generation to generation; from age to age, you are.” (Entrance Antiphon, Tuesday of the First Week of Lent, Cf. Psalm 89:1-2). The times in which we live are becoming “curiouser and curiouser” to the point that one hasn’t any idea what is coming next. I wonder why it seems we are shocked that government […]

Daily Reflection — Blessed of My Father

“Then the King will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed […]

Daily Reflection — Into New Life

“For Christ also died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit; in which he went and preached to the spirits in prison, who formerly did not obey, when God’s patience waited in the days of Noah, during […]
