Our Lenten Journey, March 9, 2019
Quotes of the Day:
“Far better it is for you to say: “I am a sinner,” than to say: “I have no need of religion.” The empty can be filled, but the self-intoxicated have no room for God.”
― Venerable Fulton J. Sheen, Seven Words of Jesus and Mary: Lessons from Cana and Calvary
“In reality, before the Lord we are all sinners and all in need of forgiveness. All of us.”
— Pope Francis, Angelus, Sept. 7, 2014
“You must ask God to give you power to fight against the sin of pride which is your greatest enemy – the root of all that is evil, and the failure of all that is good. For God resists the proud.”
— St. Vincent de Paul
