“Each of you knows that the foundation of our faith is charity. Without it, our religion would crumble. We will never be truly Catholic unless we conform our entire lives to the two commandments that are the essence of the Catholic faith: to love the Lord, our God, with all our strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves.”

— Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati

“Know, dearest daughter, how, by humble, continual, and faithful prayer, the soul aquires, with time and perseverance, every virtue. Wherefore should she persevere and never abandon prayer.”

— St. Catherine Of Siena

“Every statement we make is made with language. That’s even how the first chapter of John’s Gospel says that the world came into being: in the beginning was the Word. St. John of the Cross would later meditate on this theme and say that language is what makes God’s presence known. But besides language and its capacity to discover, there is silence and its ability to teach.”
