Quotes of the Day:

“Self-knowledge puts us on our knees, and it is very necessary for love. For knowledge of God produces love, and knowledge of self produces humility.”

—St Teresa of Calcutta

“To be taken with love for a soul, God does not look on its greatness, but the greatness of its humility.”
St  John of the Cross, OCD

“Meek—free from the addiction to ordinary power—you can become a conduit of true divine power to the world.”
Bishop Robert E. Barron, Catholicism: A Journey to the Heart of the Faith

Each 15 minute presentations will debut on Saturday afternoons at 5:00 p.m. during the first four weeks of Lent on the diocesan YouTube channel, YouTube.com/DioceseofWilm.
