Wise counsel, wise living ...

"God is more honored by a single Mass than He could be by all the actions 
of angels and men together, however fervent and heroic they might be. 
 ... If we only knew the treasure we hold in our hands!"
- St Claude de la Colombiere


"If you are sinful, repent
so that you can Communicate often.
If you are imperfect,
go often to Communion
that you may amend your faults."

"It is in vain that Your enemy and mine (the devil) sets new traps
for me all the time.  He can make me lose everything, except
my hope in Your mercy.  Had I fallen a hundred times, and my
crimes were a hundred times more horrible than they are,
I would still hope in You." -  St. Claude de la Colombiere


If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins 
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. - I John 1:9
