Memorable Quotes

I was looking over posts from when I began my blog (hoping for some kind of inspiration, I guess) when I happened upon these two quotes:

"If you wish to go to extremes, let it be in sweetness, patience, humility and charity."
St Philip Neri

"The highest degree of meekness consists in seeking, serving, honoring, and treating amiably, on occasion, those who are not to our taste, and who show themselves unfriendly, ungrateful, and troublesome to us."
St Frances de Sales

Very timely quotes, seeing as it is Lent, and, as I said before, the devil is working overtime to bring unrest and dissension into as many situations as he can right now! Today, let's all try to be extremists - in sweetness, patience, humility and charity! If I can pull it off, I'm sure my family will wonder what I'm up to!

Wait, one final quote that I just saw in an email:
"Faithfully do what God expects of you each moment, and leave the rest to Him. I assure you that living in this manner will bring you great peace." ~St. Jane Frances de Chantal


  1. Maybe "like minded people" aren't so" like minded" after all.

  2. I've published this Anonymous comment in the hopes that the person who left it will explain it to me. If you were trying to tell me something, I must confess that it went completely over my head!
    God Bless!

  3. Here's a great quote from my favorite, St. Therese, the Little Flower: "Let us not grow tired of prayer: confidence works miracles." I love the one you posted from St. Jane Frances de Chantal as well.
