Daily Meditations

REMEMBER, O Christian soul, that thou hast this day and every day of thy life: God to glorify-- Jesus to imitate-- the Angels and Saints to invoke-- a soul to save-- a body to mortify-- sins to expiate-- virtues to acquire-- Hell to avoid-- Heaven to gain-- Eternity to prepare for-- time to profit by-- neighbors to edify-- the world to despise-- devils to combat-- passions to subdue-- death perhaps to suffer-- Judgment to undergo.

Christ made my soul beautiful with the jewels of grace and virtue. I belong to Him Whom the angels serve. ~Saint Agnes

No one heals himself by wounding another. ~Saint Ambrose

God in his omnipotence could not give more, in His wisdom He knew not how to give more, in His riches He had not more to give, than the Eucharist. ~Saint Augustine

Conquer thyrself and the world lies at thy feet. ~Saint Augustine

A Tree (Mary) is known by Its Fruit (Jesus). ~St. Louis de Montfort

If there is anything divine among man's possessions which might excite the envy of the citizens of heaven -could they ever be swayed by such a passion-, this is undoubtedly the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, by means of which men, having before their eyes, and taking into their hands the very Creator of Heaven and earth, experience, while still on earth, a certain anticipation of Heaven. ~Pope Urban VII
