Our Lenten Journey, March 18, 2019
Quotes of the Day:
“Genuine love … is demanding. But its beauty lies precisely in the demands it makes. Only those able to make demands on themselves in the name of love can then demand love from others.” — St. John Paul II
“At the end of our life we will be judged on love, that is, on our concrete commitment to love and serve Jesus in the least of our brothers and the needy.” — Pope Francis
“The last judgment shall fill sinners with terror, but will be a source of joy and sweetness to the elect; for Lord will then give praise to each one according to his works.”
— St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori
