Teach us to give and not count the cost.
- St. Ignatius de Loyola
God tenderly gathers all the tears of the suffering and are stored in his chest, as if they were precious stones.
- Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi
Tribulation is a gift from God - one that he especially gives His special friends.
- St. Thomas More
If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world ablaze!
- St. Catherine of Sienna
Love to be real, it must cost - it must hurt - it must empty us of self.
- St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Let me tell you why I believe abortion is the crucial issue of our age. First, because abortion, too, is about living within the truth. The right to life is the foundation of every other human right. If that right is not inviolate, then no right can be guaranteed. Or to put it more bluntly: Homicide is homicide, no matter how small the victim.
- Archbishop Charles J. Chaput
O Master, make me chaste, but not yet!
- St. Augustine
