More Saintly Quotes

Today is the Feast of Blessed Francisco and Jacinta Marto. The bother and sister together with their cousin Lucia dos Santos who saw Our Lady in Fatima in 1917.

Here are some of the sayings of Blessed Jacinta Marto while she stayed in an orphanage due to her sickness. I read these quotations during my sermon at a High School Mass this morning.

  • More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.

  • Many marriages are not good; they do not please Our Lord and are not of God!

  • People are lost because they do not think of the death of Our Lord and do not do penance.

  • If men only knew what eternity is, they would do everything in their power to change their lives.
