Inspirational Quotes

“Faith is to believe what you do not see. The reward of faith is to see what you believe.”

St. Augustine

“Let no one mourn that he has fallen again and again: for forgiveness has risen from the grave!”

St. John Chrysostom

“Mary, who is the Virgin Most Pure, is also the Refuge of Sinners. She knows what sin is, not by the experience of its fall, not by tasting its bitter regrets, but by seeing what it did to her Divine Son.”

Venerable Fulton Sheen

“Know that the greatest service that man can offer to God is to help convert souls.”

St. Rose of Lima
