“Teach me to sing again of your faithfulness, Gracious One. Open my mouth to give you praise with exuberant joy. Give me courage, Lord, to speak, to let my lips declare what I know in my inmost being: I am blessed by your love.”

-from Who Does He Say You Are?


“Make it a practice to judge persons and things in the most favorable light at all times and under all circumstances.”

— St. Vincent de Paul


“The Church, which has spread everywhere, even to the ends of the earth, received the faith from the apostles and their disciples . . . Having one soul and one heart, the Church holds this faith, preaches and teaches it consistently as though by a single voice. For though there are different languages, there is but one tradition.”

— St. Ignatius of Antioch
