Our Lenten Journey, April 2, 2019
Quotes of the Day:
“During the coma I saw Padre Pio in a dream on my right and three angels on the left. One with golden wings and a white tunic and the two others with white wings and a red tunic. Padre Pio, on my right, told me not to worry because I would soon be cured. In fact, my cure was like the resurrection of Lazarus.”
— Matteo Pio Colella, whose healing paved the way for the canonization of St. Pio of Pietrelcina
“Hold your eyes on God and leave the doing to Him. That is all the doing you have to worry about.” — St. Jeanne de Chantal
“Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.” — St. Teresa of Calcutta
