Quote of the day, 12 April: St. Teresa of Avila

In the Sixth Dwelling Place of the Interior Castle, St. Teresa once again commends the practice of reflection on the Passion of Our Lord: "Life is long, and there are in it many trials, and we need to look at Christ our model, how He suffered them, and also at His apostles and saints, so as to bear these trials with perfection."

Quote of the day, 11 February: Saint Zélie Martin

Saint Zélie Martin learns that her breast cancer has reached such an advanced stage that it is inoperable. She writes to her husband, "I'll go to Lourdes on the first pilgrimage, and I hope the Blessed Mother will cure me, if it's necessary. In the meantime let's stop worrying."

Pray a lot, my dear little girl, for the success of the pilgrimage to Chartres
