Quote of the day, 11 September: St. Teresa of Avila

Here St. Teresa explains her image of the well-watered garden, irrigated by "the water flowing from a river or spring." She compares the soul's joy to the woman who called her neighbors when she found her lost coin, one of the parables in our Gospel for Sunday, 11 September.

Quote of the day, 25 August: St. Mary of Jesus Crucified

St. Mary of Jesus Crucified experienced a phenomenon during prayer that seems to be common to us all at one point in our lives: she would fall asleep. "Without doubt, I am not distracted, but I cannot finish my brief prayer. Even if I want to say the Hail Mary, I stop at the first words: “I salute you Mary”... and I lose myself and I fall asleep."

Quote of the day, 18 August: St. John Paul II

In his homily for the beatification of the Martyrs of Rochefort, St. John Paul II quoted the apostle Paul: "they fought the good fight of faith." He continued: "They even went through a long ordeal for having remained faithful to their faith and to the Church. If they died, it was because they insisted to the end on affirming their close communion" with the Pope.

Quote of the day, 15 August: Père Jacques de Jésus

In his retreat for the Carmel of Pontoise in 1943, the Servant of God Père Jacques de Jésus, OCD offered a meditation on The Divine Preparation in Mary and in Us. His essential point was this: "Divine preparations are always and above all spiritual rather than material."

Quote of the day, 11 August: St. Elizabeth of the Trinity

In a tender letter to her mother, St. Elizabeth of the Trinity reassures her mother once again that her heroic sacrifice will be recorded "in the great book of life." But she also intimates that her health is failing: the prioress insists that Elizabeth should "spend time out in the fresh air."
