Dear Parishioners

I hope your daily rosary is going well during this month of the Rosary. Here are a few quotes from some spiritual masters. I hope you find inspiration in them.

Love and Peace,
Fr Liam Quinlan

“Prayer is the duty of every moment. We ought always to pray, said our Lord. And what He said, He did; therein lay His great power. Action accompanied His words and corresponded with them. We must pray always in order to be on our guard. Our life, both of body and soul, our natural and supernatural life, is like a fragile flower. We live surrounded by enemies. Ever since man rejected the Light that was meant to show him the way, everything has become for us an obstacle and a danger; we live in the shadow of death.”

— Dom Augustin Guillerand, The Prayer of the Presence of God

“Here is a rule for everyday life: do not do anything which you cannot offer to God.” – St. Jean-Marie Vianney

“The soul that does not attach itself solely to the will of God will find neither satisfaction nor sanctification in any other means however excellent by which it may attempt to gain them. If that which God Himself chooses for you does not content you, from whom do you expect to obtain what you desire? . . . No soul can be really nourished, fortified, purified, enriched, and sanctified except in fulfilling the duties of the present moment.”

— Fr. Jean-Pierre de Caussade, Abandonment to Divine
Providence
