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


"The happiness of the person whose will is entirely submitted 
to God's is constant, unchangeable and endless. 
No fear comes to disturb it for no accident can destroy it."
St. Claude de la Colombiere

  St Claude de la Colombiere, pray for us!
