Praised be You, my Lord, through our Sister, Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us, producing varied fruits with coloured flowers and herbs.
Francis of Assisi
While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it even more fully in your heart.
For it is in giving that we receive.
The Father willed that his blessed and glorious Son, whom he gave to us and who was born for us, should through his own blood offer himself as a sacrificial victim on the altar of the cross. This was to be done not for himself through whom all things were made, but for our sins.
It is no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching.
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.
Men lose all the material things they leave behind them in this world, but they carry with them the reward of their charity and the alms they give. For these, they will receive from the Lord the reward and recompense they deserve.
A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows.
Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
