15 Quotes From Padre Pio

17 Dec , 2016  

Padre Pio Quotes

1- Prayer is the best weapon we have; it is the key to God’s heart. You must speak to Jesus not only with your lips, but with your heart. In fact on certain occasions you should only speak to Him with your heart.

2- Some people are so foolish that they think they can go through life without the help of the Blessed Mother. Love the Madonna and pray the rosary, for her Rosary is the weapon against the evils of the world today. All graces given by God pass through the Blessed Mother. More…

25 Quotes From St John Vianney

5 Dec , 2016  

st john vianney quotes

1 – There is nothing so great as the Eucharist. If God had something more precious, He would have given it to us.

2 – Do not try to please everybody. Try to please God, the angels, and the saints – they are your public.

3 – We put pride into everything like salt. We like to see that our good works are known. If our virtues are seen, we are pleased; if our faults are perceived, we are sad. I remark that in a great many people; if one says anything to them, it disturbs them, it annoys them. The saints were not like that – they were vexed if their virtues were known, and pleased that their imperfections should be seen. More…

St. Gertrude and the Holy Souls

Saint Gertrude had a deep empathy for the Church suffering, the Holy Souls in Purgatory. At every Holy Communion she beseeched Jesus for His mercy to be bestowed on them.

During one Holy Communion she experienced the descent into Purgatory with Our Lord. She heard Him say: “At Holy Communion I will permit thee to draw forth all to whom the fragrance of thy prayers penetrates.”

After Holy Communion Our Lord customarily delivered more Souls than she had dared to ask for. More…

Brown Scapular Stories

“Whosoever dies wearing this Scapular Shall not suffer eternal fire!”
— Our Lady of Mt. Carmel to St. Simon Stock (July 16, 1251)

The Devil to Father Velasco:

‘Take it off! Take off that Habit which snatches so many souls from us! All those clothed in it die piously and escape us!’ They then cried that three things particularly torment them: the first is the name of Jesus; the second the name of Mary; the third, the Scapular of Carmel.” More…

When Is It Licit To Curse Someone?

8 Nov , 2016  

When Is It Licit To Curse Someone?

With the progressivist mentality dominating almost all the Catholic Church, it has been broadly spread that it is forbidden for any Catholic to curse another person or thing. Here we offer the words of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Universal Doctor of the Church, who teaches otherwise. He explains when it is licit for Catholics to make a curse.

St. Thomas Aquinas

If a man commands or desires evil for another for a good reason, then it is licit. This may be called cursing, not strickly speaking, but accidentally, because the primary intention of the speaker is directed not to evil but to good.

Why do Catholics confess their sins to a priest, and not directly to Jesus? Why is it so important to go to Confession?

5 Apr , 2016  

Prayer After Confession

Catholics do confess their sins to God. We do it directly as well as through His ministers because that is what God requires, as clearly taught in Scripture.

The Sacrament of Penance is one of the seven sacraments instituted by Jesus Christ Himself on Easter Sunday, when He first appeared to the apostles after his Resurrection. Breathing on them, he said: “Receive the Holy Spirit. For those whose sins you forgive, they are forgiven; for those whose sins you retain, they are retained” (John 20:22-23). Jesus is clearly giving the disciples the authority to forgive, and not to forgive sins. More…
