Pure, radiant, and useful

Mary is a most pure star, a most radiant star, and a most useful star.

She is a most pure star by living most purely;

a most radiant star by bringing forth Eternal Light;

a most useful star by directing us to the shores of our true home country.

St. Bonaventure

Satisfy your longings

You have everything when you have within you the One who made all things, 

the only One who can satisfy the longings of your spirit. 

St. Anthony of Padua


… day after day He humbles Himself, 

as when He came down from His royal throne into the Virgin’s womb. 

Day by day He comes to us personally in this lowly form. 

Daily He comes down from the bosom of His Father, onto the altar, into 

the hands of the priest. 

St. Francis of Assisi
