First Sunday of Lent
"Very few people believe in the devil these days, which suits the devil very well.
He is always helping to circulate the news of his own death.
The essence of God is existence, and He defines Himself as: 'I am Who am.'
The essence of the devil is the lie, and he defines himself as: 'I am who am not.'
Satan has very little trouble with those who do not believe in him;
they are already on his side." - Ven Fulton J Sheen, Life of Christ
"What does Jesus Christ do in the Eucharist?
It is God who, as our Savior,
offers Himself each day for us to His Father's justice.
If you are in difficulties and sorrows,
He will comfort and relieve you.
If you are sick,
He will either cure you
or give you strength to suffer so as to merit Heaven.
If the devil, the world, and the flesh
are making war upon you,
He will give you the weapons with which to fight,
to resist, and to win victory.
If you are poor,
He will enrich you with all sorts of riches
for time and eternity.
Let us open the door of His sacred and adorable Heart, and be wrapped about for an instant by the flames of His love, and we shall see what a God who loves us can do. O my God, who shall be able to comprehend?"
St. John Vianney
"The Holy Eucharist is the perfect expression
of the love of Jesus Christ for man." - St. Maria Goretti
