Saintly Quote of the Day (2008年12月26日)

To save our souls we must live according to the maxims of the Gospel, and not according to those of the world.---ST. ALPHONSUS.


Extra Quotes on St. Stephen:

Yesterday we celebrated the temporal Birth of our eternal King: to-day we celebrate the triumphant passion of His Soldier. Yesterday our King, having put on the garb of our flesh, came from the sanctuary of His Mother's virginal womb, and mercifully visited the earth: to-day His Soldier, quitting his earthy tabernacle, entered triumphantly into heaven.---ST. FULGENTIUS.

Had Stephen not prayed, the Church today would have no Paul.---ST. AUGUSTINE.
