Quote For a Sunday Night


"If you want faith, pray. If you want hope, pray. If you want charity, pray. If you want poverty, pray. If you want obedience, pray. If you want chastity, pray. If you want humility, pray. If you want meekness, pray. If you want fortitude, pray. If you want any virtue, pray.

"And pray in this fashion: always reading the Book of Life, that is, the life of the God-Man, Jesus Christ, whose life consisted of poverty, pain, contempt and true obedience."

~~ Blessed Angela of Foligno, Book of Visions and Instructions
