THE FEAST OF ST. GERTRUDE THE GREAT
“Eternal Father, I offer You the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus Christ, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, those in the Universal Church, in my home, and in my family.”
You never go away from us, yet we have difficulty in returning to You. Come, Lord, stir us up and call us back. Kindle and seize us. Be our fire and our sweetness. Let us love. Let us run. — St. Augustine
If you want to see the face of Christ, stop and collect your thoughts in silence, and close the door of your soul to the noise of external things.
— St. Anthony of Padua
