Richard of St. Laurence states there is not such powerful help in any name, nor is there any other name given to men, after that of Jesus, from which so much salvation is poured forth upon men as from the name of Mary.
He continues, that the devout invocation of this sweet and holy name leads to the acquisition of superabundant graces in this life, and a very high degree of glory in the next.
A new command I give you:
Love one another.
As I have loved you,
so you must love one another.
If your daily life seems poor,
do not blame it;
blame yourself that you are not poet enough
to call forth its riches;
for the Creator, there is no poverty.
(Rainer Maria Rilke)
So have no fear of them; for nothing is covered up that will not be uncovered, and nothing secret that will not become known. — Matthew 10:26
Every charitable act is a stepping stone toward heaven. (Henry Ward Beecher)
A man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears.
(Michael de Montaigne)
