The Rosary is the book of the blind, where souls see and there enact the greatest drama of love the world has ever known; it is the book of the simple, which initiates them into mysteries and knowledge more satisfying than the education of other men; it is the book of the aged, whose eyes close upon the shadow of this world, and open on the substance of the next. The power of the Rosary is beyond description. — Venerable Fulton J. Sheen (via like-distant-thunder)

What does Christ truly ask of us? Jesus asks us to commit ourselves to proclaiming Him to our peers. - Blessed Pope John Paul the Great

soultips:

I ask all the people of the world, who naturally and instinctively make love of life the horizon of their dreams and the rainbow of their hopes, to become prophets of life. Be such by your words and deeds, rebelling against the civilization of selfishness that often considers the human person as a means rather than an end, sacrificing its dignity and feelings in the name of mere profit. Do so by concretely helping those who need us and who, without our help, would perhaps be tempted to resign themselves to despair. - Blessed Pope John Paul the Great

People feel the need for a more intimate piety. In many cases people are in fact looking for an individualistic piety, a type of spirituality tailor-made to fit “my needs” of the moment. Such piety, however, can easily drift into becoming just a private comfort zone rather than a path of personal faith challenged by the demands of the Word of God. — Archbishop Diarmuid Martin (Dublin)

You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.
O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!


It’s Divine Mercy Sunday

We are witnessing the transformation of tolerance into a kind of tyranny in which religious views are the only ones which seem unworthy of respect and acceptance. — Archbishop Mario Conti (Glasgow)
