Some wise words from the saints!

Christ said, "I am the Truth"; he did not say "I am the custom."  St. Toribio

Those who commit these types of scandals are guility of the spiritual equivalent of murder, but I', here among you to prevent something far worst for you. While those who give scandal are guilty of the spiritual equivalent of murder, those who take scandal- who allow scandals to destroy faith- are guilty of spiritual suicide. St. Francis de Sales

It is better to say one Our Father fervently and devoutly than a thousand with no devotion and full of distraction.  St. Edmund

We must pray without tiring, for the salvation of mankind does not depend on material success; nor on sciences that cloud the intellect. Neither does it depend on arms and human industries, but on Jesus alone.  St. Frances Xavier Cabrini

Mary was raised to the dignity of Mother of God rather for sinners than for the just, since Jesus Christ declares that he came to call not the just, but sinners.  St. Anselm

O Mary, we poor sinners know no other refuge but you, you are our only patroness, and we all look to you! St. Thomas of Villanova

Whoever loves Mary will persevere-St. John Berchmans

I found these quotes on "Seeking Jesus" ( and on "Defend the Faith" ( I recommend you their sites!
