Quick Takes: The Quote Edition


At the evening of our life, we shall be judged on our love.

St. John of the Cross


A living love hurts. Jesus, to prove His love for us, died on the Cross.
The mother, to give to her child, must suffer. If you really love one another
properly, there must be sacrifice.

Blessed Teresa of Calcutta


Justice ceases to be just when it ceases to be human.

St. Katherine Drexel


Manifest yourself. You have not time to occupy your thoughts with that
complacency or consideration of what others will think. Your business is simply,
'What will my Father in heaven think?'

St. Katherine Drexel


When you feel the assaults of passion and anger, then it is the time to be
silent as Jesus was silent in the midst of His ignominies and sufferings.

St. Paul of the Cross


When freedom does not have a purpose, when it does not wish to know anything
about the rule of law engraved in the hearts of men and women, when it does not
listen to the voice of conscience, it turns against humanity and society.

Pope John Paul II


Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything
depended on you.

St. Augustine
