Make me preach you without preaching …

Stay with me, and then I shall begin to shine as you shine, so to shine as to be a light to others. The light, O Jesus, will be all from you. It will be you who shines through me upon others. (Cardinal Newman)

Serenity Prayer

God, give us grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, courage to change the things which should be changed, and the Wisdom to distinguish the one from the other. (Reinhold Niebuhr)

God Never Abandons Us

As an act of love, let us bring into prayer our families, our friends, our neighbors. Let us pray for those who are sick and suffering. Let us pray for the Clerics of St. Viateur. Let us pray for all the pilgrims who come to Our Lady’s Sanctuary. Let us pray for all those with whom over the years we have shared the celebration of Mass at our parishes and especially at Our Lady’s beautiful Sanctuary. Let us pray for one another!

Life is life

Life is beauty, admire it. Life is sheer happiness, enjoy it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge, take it up. Life is a duty, do it. (…) (Mother Teresa)

The experience of grace

You are accepted. You are accepted, accepted by that which is greater than you, and the name of which you do not know. Do not ask for the name now; perhaps you will find it later. (Paul Tillich)

It is the time to rearrange our priorities

We must aim above all at an inner renewal, a liberation from the mere following of conventions, a new departure in our way of thinking. (Pope Paul VI)

Peace is first and foremost personal before it is social

Peace demands a mentality and a spirit which, before turning to others, must first permeate him who wishes to bring peace. Peace is first and foremost personal before it is social. (Pope Paul VI)
