“The Lord’s triumph, on this day of the Resurrection, is final. Where are the soldiers the rulers posted there? Where are the seals that were fixed to the stone of the tomb? Where are those who condemned the Master? Where are those who crucified Jesus? He is victorious, and faced with His victory those poor wretches have all taken flight. Be filled with hope: Jesus Christ is always victorious!!!”

–St. Josemarie Escriva,

“The spirit of humility is sweeter than honey, and those who nourish themselves with this honey produce sweet fruit.”

“Let anger be guarded against. But if it cannot be averted, let it be kept within bounds. For indignation is a terrible incentive to sin. It disorders the mind to such an extent as to leave no room for reason. The first thing, therefore, to aim at, if possible, is to make tranquility of character our natural disposition by constant practice, by desire for better things, by fixed determination.”

— St. Ambrose
