Like the Good Samaritan, may we not be ashamed of touching the wounds of those who suffer, but try to heal them with concrete acts of love. ~Pope Francis

When folks ask me about intercession of the saints, I like saying this: In prayer, we always go to Jesus. Sometimes we bring friends with us.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan (via asteriahysteria)

(via by-grace-of-god)


God the Father gathered all the waters together and called them the seas (maria). He gathered all his
graces together and called them Mary (Maria)

St Louis Marie de Montfort  (via dominus-deus)

Perfect wordplay is perfect.

Normally the sacrifices that our Lord asks of us, even the most difficult ones, refer to tiny details, but they are as continuous and invaluable as the beating of our hearts.
St. Josemaria Escriva (via saintquotes)

Remember when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received, only what you have given: a heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage.
St. Francis of Assisi (via sunflower-soul)

People talk with a quite astonishing gravity about the inequality or equality of the sexes; as if there could possibly be any inequality between a lock and a key…A woman is only inferior to man in the matter of being not so manly; she is inferior in nothing else. Man is inferior to woman in so far as he is not a woman; there is no other reason.
G.K. Chesterton (via varangoi)

Quote from Venerable Fulton Sheen.

(via life-gift-love-eternal)


You are small children and have already lost your mother. That is an irreplaceable loss. A father’s death is not anywhere near the loss of a mother. My death will leave you orphans, vulnerable and alone in the world. You will weep. Yes, you might even weep your hearts out, and that will be good—provided you weep before your Father in heaven. We have it on the authority of his Son, and I have experienced the truth of it personally: ‘Happy are those who weep, for they shall be comforted.’ Spill your tears before him, and he will always dry them. That is the Sermon on the Mount, the place where you can find all the answers. Climbing through this mountain can be hard-going, and at times through mists, rain and snow. But when the mists and clouds lift, what a vista of beauty, peace and love!
Dr. Takashi Nagai, Catholic convert and scientist, writing to his young children. His wife was killed by the atomic bombing of Nagasaki. Dr. Nagai died in 1951 of leukemia, the disease exacerbated by his exposure to radiation. (via semper-spes-est)
