Let Us Pray!

Prayer is the great means we have for overcoming sin, for persevering in grace, for turning our hearts to God and drawing down upon us all kinds of blessings, whether for ourselves or for our temporal needs. 
St. John Marie Vianney

Be At Peace

Do not fear what may happen tomorrow; the same Everlasting Father who cared for you today will take care of you then and everyday.  He will either shield you from suffering, or will give you unfailing strength to bear it.  Be at peace and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.
 St. Francis de Sales

These Things Are Not First - But We Forget

[When Satan tempted Jesus in the desert] our Lord was not denying that man must be fed, or that social justice must be preached, but He was asserting that these things are not first. 
He was, in effect, saying to Satan, 'You tempt me to a religion which would relieve want; you want Me to be a baker instead of a Savior; to be a social reformer, instead of a Redeemer. You are tempting Me away from My Cross, suggesting that I be a cheap leader of people, feeding their bellies instead of their souls...
Be gone Satan! I am not just a social worker who has never been hungry Himself, but one who says I reject any plan which promises to make men richer, without making them holier.’
Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

Remember!

We have no right to rest as long as a single soul is Satan's slave. 
St. Maximilian Kolbe
