Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church


September 23 – Feast of St. Pio of Pietrelcina

September 23rd, 2010, Promulgated by Gen

On today’s commemoration of St. Padre Pio, I would simply like to share a couple of his thoughts with you.

The following come to you care of Love Undefiled.

  • “On this earth everyone has his cross. But we must act in such a way that we not be the bad but the good thief.”
    “The proof of love is to suffer for the one you love.”
  • “In the spiritual life you must take one step forward each day in a vertical line, from the bottom up.”
  • “Always remain close to the Catholic Church, because it alone can give you true peace, since it alone possesses Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, the true Prince of Peace.”
  • “It would be easier for the earth to exist without the sun than without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.”
  • “Humility and charity go hand in hand. The one glorifies, the other sanctifies.”
  • “To fail in charity is to wound God in the pupil of His eye.”
  • “The surest means of remaining immune to the pestiferous disease that surrounds us to fortify ourselves with Eucharistic food.”
  • “Prayer is the effusion of our heart into God’s… When it is well done, it moves the Divine Heart and makes Him always more inclined to grant our requests.”
  • “Let’s approach Holy Communion with holy love and fear. May the entire day be preparation and thanksgiving for Holy Communion.”
