Saints Show us the View Through the Grille

"Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ."  (St. Jerome)

"How can we go on saying we are one with Him if we are not willing to make our will fit in with His?"  (St. Francis de Sales)

"Every moment comes to us pregnant with a command from God, only to pass on and plunge into eternity, there to remain forever what we have made of it."  (St. Francis de Sales)

"Close your ears to the whisperings of hell and bravely oppose its onslaughts."  (St. Clare)

"Always remain quiet and calm in the shelter of God's will, under the mighty protection of the most High." (St. Paul of the Cross)

"Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought."  (St. John Paul II)

"A heart full of love loves the commandments."  (St. Francis de Sales)
