5 CATHOLIC QUOTES

FIVE FAVOURITE QUOTES

“Dear friends, may no adversity paralyse you. Be afraid neither of the world, nor of the future, nor of your weakness. The Lord has allowed you to live in this moment of history so that, by your faith, His name will continue to resound throughout the world."
Pope Benedict XVI

“If you follow the will of God, you know that in spite of all the terrible things that happen to you, you will never lose a final refuge. You know that the foundation of the world is love, so that even when no human being can or will help you, you may go on, trusting in the One that loves you.”
POPE BENEDICT XVI

“God has created me to do Him some definite service. He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission. I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.
He has not created me for naught.....

Therefore, I will trust Him..... If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him, in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him. If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. He does nothing in vain. He knows what He is about. He may take away my friends. He may throw me among strangers. He may make me feel desolate, make my spirits sink, hide my future from me. Still,
He knows what He is about.” 
Bl. John Henry Newman

Can we suppose that the blood of our martyrs shall never receive its recompense? Those priests did they suffer for no end? Or rather, for an end which is not yet accomplished? O my God, are they to have no reward?  Shall they lose life, and not gain a better life for the children of those who persecuted them? And in that day of trial and desolation for England, when hearts were pierced through and through with Mary's woe, at the crucifixion of Thy body mystical, was not every tear that flowed, and every drop of blood that was shed, the seeds of a future harvest, when they who sowed in sorrow were to reap in joy?
Bl. John Henry Newman
