iPhone : “Naaman bathed seven times under the old law, but you were baptized in the name of the Trinity...Mark the sequence of events: you died to the world, you rose again to God, and you were reborn to eternal life. Believe, then, that the water is not without effect.” -St. Ambrose

iPhone : “The paralytic at the pool was waiting for someone. Who was this if not the Lord Jesus, born of a virgin? At his coming it is not a question of a shadow healing an individual, but Truth himself healing the universe.” -St. Ambrose

iPhone : #BlCeslaus, OP (1180-1242) was born in Silesia to a noble family. Ordained a priest, he went to Rome in 1221 and met St Dominic who received him and St Hyacinth into the Order. He evangelized Eastern Europe, performed many miracles and helped establish the Province of Poland.

iPhone : “Do not believe only what the eyes of your body tell you. What is not seen is here more truly seen, for what is seen belongs to time but what is not seen belongs to eternity. What is not seen by the eyes but is seen by the mind is seen in a truer and deeper sense.” -St. Ambrose

Twitter Web Client : "Or, we simply abandon them. The children we keep, we leave to the care of professionals, who in turn treat them like units of labor to be worked on. We give them over to an education system that euthanizes their imagination, that literally drugs them into obedience."

Twitter Web Client : "When we do have children we so often have them as consumable objects, as part of our life-style choices. We do not receive them as gifts, as living things inviolate and inviolable. We calculate about them, not worried over what we might give them, but what they take from us."

Twitter Web Client : O Holy Mary, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to succor me in my need. There are none that can withstand your power. O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. Sweet Mother I place this cause in your hands.

iPhone : “Let us die, then, and enter into the darkness, silencing our anxieties, passions, and fantasies. Let us pass over with the crucified Christ from this world to the Father so that, when the Father has shown himself to us, we can say with Philip: ‘It is enough.’” -St. Bonaventure

iPhone : “A man should fully attend to the throne of mercy, and should gaze on Christ hanging on the cross, with faith, hope and charity, full of wonder and joy, marked by gratitude and open to praise and jubilation. Then such a man will make with Christ a pasch, that is, a passing-over.”

Twitter Web Client : Today is the feast of #StBonaventure, the 13th-century Franciscan scholar and cardinal. A contemporary of Aquinas, Bonaventure fought alongside his colleague to secure the freedom of the mendicant orders, all the while giving intellectual shape to the early Franciscan spirit.

iPhone : “In the sick he saw the person of Christ. His imagination was so vivid that, while feeding them, he perceived his patients as other Christs. He would even beg of them the gift of forgiveness for his sins.” -From the Life of St. Camillus de Lellis
