Saint Francis Solano quotes by Malcolm Muggeridge
#2. The greatest artists, saints, philosophers, and, until quite recent times, scientists ... have all assumed that the New Testament promise of eternal life is valid ... I'd rather be wrong with Dante and Shakespeare and Milton, with Augustine of Hippo and Francis of Assisi, with Dr. Johnson, Blake, and Dostoevsky than right with Voltaire, Rousseau, the Huxleys, Herbert Spencer, H. G. Wells, and Bernard Shaw. #Quote by Malcolm Muggeridge
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Simone Weil
#3. As for the spirit of poverty, I do not remember any moment when it was not in me, although only to that unhappily small extent compatible with my imperfection. I fell in love with Saint Francis of Assisi as soon as I came to know about him. I always believed and hoped that one day Fate would force upon me the condition of a vagabond and a beggar which he embraced freely. Actually I felt the same way about prison. #Quote by Simone Weil

Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#9. The enemy often tries to make us attempt and start many projects so that we will be overwhelmed with too many tasks, and therefore achieve nothing and leave everything unfinished. Sometimes he even suggests the wish to undertake some excellent work that he foresees we will never accomplish. This is to distract us from the prosecution of some less excellent work that we would have easily completed. He does not care how many plans and beginnings we make, provided nothing is finished. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales

If I were tied by a villain and thrown before a herd of stampeding horses all shod in iron, and the only way to keep from being trampled was to tell the villain your secret, I - #Quote by Lisa Kleypas

Saint Francis Solano quotes by Francis Of Assisi
#21. We should have no more use or regard for money in any of its forms than we have for dust. Those who think it is worth more, or who are greedy for it, expose themselves to the danger of being deceived by the Devil. #Quote by Francis Of Assisi
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#22. Do not look forward to the changes and chances of this life in fear; rather look to them with full hope that, as they arise, God, whose you are, will deliver you out of them. He is your keeper. He has kept you hitherto. Do you but hold fast to his dear hand, and he will lead you safely through all things; and, when you cannot stand, he will bear you in his arms. Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow. Our Father will either shield you from suffering, or he will give you strength to bear it. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#23. What we need is a cup of understanding, a barrel of love, and an ocean of patience. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Pope Francis
#24. Nobody can go off to battle unless he is fully convinced of victory beforehand. If we start without confidence, we have already lost half the battle and we bury our talents. While painfully aware of our own frailties, we have to march on without giving in, keeping in mind what the Lord said to Saint Paul: "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness" (2 Cor 12:9). Christian triumph is always a cross, yet a cross which is at the same time a victorious banner borne with aggressive tenderness against the assaults of evil. The evil spirit of defeatism is brother to the temptation to separate, before its time, the wheat from the weeds; it is the fruit of an anxious and self-centred lack of trust. #Quote by Pope Francis
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#25. All the science of the Saints is included in these two things: To do, and to suffer. And whoever had done these two things best, has made himself most saintly. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#26. It is to those who have the most need of us that we ought to show our love more especially. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Pope Francis
#27. Saint John Paul II, pray for us and especially for our youth. #Quote by Pope Francis
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Pope Francis
#28. May both of them [Saint John XXIII and Saint John Paul II] teach us not to be scandalized by the wounds of Christ and to enter ever more deeply into the mystery of divine mercy, which always hopes and always forgives, because it always loves. #Quote by Pope Francis
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Nikos Kazantzakis
#29. Forgetting himself for a moment, Francis brought his hand out from under his frock in order to bless the multitude. When the people saw his wound they bellowed madly. The women dashed forward with mantles outstretched to catch the drops; the men thrust in their hands and anointed their faces with blood. The villagers' expressions grew savage, and so did their souls. They longed to be able to tear the Saint limb from limb in order for each of them to claim a mouthful of his flesh, for they wanted to make him their own, to have him enter them so that they could become one with a saint - could be sanctified. Blind rage had overpowered them; their eyes were leaden, their lips ringed with froth. #Quote by Nikos Kazantzakis
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#30. Trouble that is easily recognized is half-cured. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#31. Faith fills a man with love for the beauty of its truth, with faith in the truth of its beauty #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Maria Monk
#32. Others too would occasionally entertain and privately express such doubts; though we all had been most solemnly warned by the cruel murder of Saint Francis. #Quote by Maria Monk
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Pope Francis
#33. One form of prayer moves us particularly to take up the task of evangelization and to seek the good of others: it is the prayer of intercession. Let us peer for a moment into the heart of Saint Paul, to see what his prayer was like. It was full of people: " ... I constantly pray with you in every one of my prayers for all of you ... because I hold you in my heart" (Phil 1:4, 7). Here we see that intercessory prayer does not divert us from true contemplation, since authentic contemplation always has a place for others. #Quote by Pope Francis
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#34. How are you to meet the swarm of foolish attachments, triflings, and undesirable inclinations which beset you? By turning sharply away, and thoroughly renouncing such vanities, flying to the Saviour's Cross, and clasping His Crown of thorns to your heart, so that these little foxes may not spoil your vines. Beware of entering into any manner of treaty with the Enemy; do not delude yourself by listening to him while intending to reject him. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#35. Without a doubt, one of the things which keeps us from attaining perfection is our tongue. When one has reached the point of no longer committing faults in speech, he has surely reached perfection, as was said by the Holy Spirit. The worst defect in talking is talking too much. Hence, in speech be brief and virtuous, brief and gentle, brief and simple, brief and charitable, brief and amiable. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#36. We can never attain to perfection while we have an affection for any imperfection. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#37. While I am busy with little things, I am not required to do greater things. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#38. Every Christian needs a half-hour of prayer each day, except when he is busy, then he needs an hour. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#39. To love our neighbor in charity is to love God in man. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#40. A judicious silence is always better than truth spoken without charity. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#41. The damned are in the abyss of Hell, as within a woeful city, where they suffer unspeakable torments, in all their senses and members, because as they have employed all their senses and their members in sinning, so shall they suffer in each of them the punishment due to sin. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#42. The elephant, not only the largest but the most intelligent of animals, provides us with an excellent example. It is faithful and tenderly loving to the female of its choice, mating only every third year and then for no more than five days, and so secretly as never to be seen, until, on the sixth day, it appears and goes at once to wash its whole body in the river, unwilling to return to the herd until thus purified. Such good and modest habits are an example to husband and wife. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
#43. One of the greatest sermons ever pronounced on missionary work is this simple thought attributed to Saint Francis of Assisi: 'Preach the gospel at all times and if necessary, use words.' Opportunities to do so are all around us. Do not miss them by waiting too long on the road to Damascus. #Quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#44. There is nothing as strong as tenderness, And nothing as tender as true strength. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#45. There is no better means of attainment to the spiritual life Than by continually beginning again ... #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#46. 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. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Author Lynn Donovan
#47. Preach the gospel at all times. Use words if necessary. ~Saint Francis #Quote by Author Lynn Donovan
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#48. There are many who say to the Lord, "I give myself wholly to Thee, without any reserve," but there are few who embrace the practice of this abandonment, which consists in receiving with a certain indifference every sort of event, as it happens in conformity with Divine Providence, as well afflictions as consolations, contempt and reproaches as honor and glory. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Francis Solano quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#49. The test of a preacher is that his congregation goes away saying, not "What a lovely sermon!" but "I will do something." #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
