THE SAINTS

OTHER SAINTS

St Pope John Paul II
St Pope John Paul II wrote in his Tertio Millenio Adveniente [As the Third Millennium Draws Near] that “the whole of the Christian life is like a great pilgrimage to the house of the Father, whose unconditional love for every human creature, and in particular for the ‘prodigal son’ (Luke 15:11-32), we discover anew each day.” In this same apostolic letter he also reminds us that during this time, Mary, our Mother, will be lovingly and urgently inviting “all the children of God so that they will return to the house of the Father when they hear her maternal voice: ‘Do whatever Christ tells you’” (John 2:5).

St Francis of Assisi
Let your way of life among the people be such that whoever sees or hears you, will glorify and praise our Heavenly Father. 

St Ignatius of Loyola
The dialogue of the Ignatius vision at La Storta outside Rome:
Ignatius sees God the Father and Jesus carrying a cross. “Place me with your Son”, pleads Ignatius.  “We will be propitious (favorable) to you in Rome”, replies God the Father.  Then God the Father tells Jesus, “I want you to take this man to serve us”.  Then Jesus says to Ignatius, “We want you to serve us”.

As prophesied, when Ignatius went to Rome, the Pope approved the Society of Jesus religious order also known as the Jesuits.

St Padre Pio
May your heart always be the temple of the Holy Spirit. May Jesus be the helmsman of your little spiritual ship. May Mary be the star which shines on your path and may she show you the safe way to reach the Heavenly Father.

St Francis de Sales
“Obedience is a virtue of so excellent a nature, that Our Lord was pleased to mark its observance upon the whole course of His life; thus He often says, He did not come to do His Own will, but that of His Heavenly Father.”
