From Catherine Doherty

Through her liturgy, the Church points to the fact that the Cross and the empty Tomb are inseparable.

 In this way, she teaches us all about hope. She says, in effect, that when things seem all wrong, practically hopeless, that this is the time when hope should be its strongest. ~ Catherine Doherty


From St. Isaac the Syrian

“………at every moment we should know that we stand in need of repentance throughout the twenty-four hous of the night and the day………….repentance is this: continual and intense supplication which by means of prayer filled with compunction draws nigh to God in order to seek forgiveness of past offenses, and entreaty for preservation from future ones.”  ~ from Homily Seventy of St. Isaac the Syrian

Two Masses

All things can be endured and all things become possible between two Masses: the Mass of yesterday and the Mass of tomorrow.

I need to be able to sustain one day of my life. I need that Food if I am to live His commandments.

I need Him daily because I am a sinner and weak.
