This week, it was difficult just to choose one reflection from a saint so I quoted four instead!
“Remember that you have only one soul; that you have only one death to die; that you have only one life…if you do this, there will be many things about which you care nothing.”
“Christ has no body now on earth but yours, no hands, no feet, but yours. Yours are the eyes which Christ looks out his compassion to the world. Yours are the feet with which he has to go about doing good. Yours are the hands with which he is to bless us now.”
St Teresa of Avila
“It often happens that I wake up at night and begin to think about a serious problem and decide I must tell the Pope about it. Then I wake up completely and remember that I am the Pope”
“To keep me from sin and straying from Him, God has used devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. My life vows destined to be spent in the light irradiating from the tabernacle, and it is to the heart of Jesus that I dare go for the solution of all my problems.”
Pope Saint John XXIII
