He who loves is not ashamed before men of what he does for God, neither does he hide it through shame though the whole world should condemn it.
St. John of the Cross

Some Catholics are shy of making the Sign of the Cross in public.
We pray for boldness in such circumstances.

'If there is anyone who is not enlightened by this sublime magnificence of created things, he is blind. If there is anyone who, seeing all these works of God, does not praise Him, he is dumb; if there is anyone who, from so many signs, cannot perceive God, that man is foolish. . . In everything, whether it is a thing sensed or a thing known, God Himself is hidden within.'

'In our own day every man takes the greatest pains to train his boy in the arts and in literature and speech. But to exercise this child’s soul in virtue, to that no man any longer pays heed. I shall not cease exhorting and begging and supplicating you before all else to discipline your sons from the first. If thou dost care for thy son, show it thus, and in other ways too thou wilt have thy reward.'

St. John Chrysostom

Did St. Teresa of Avila really say:

"From silly devotions and sour-faced saints, good Lord, deliver us!"?

Amen.

'As for crosses, be assured that if we work with an upright spirit, they will facilitate our road to Heaven.'

St. Gaspar

I don't know of an original source for that quote that's attributed to her, perhaps someone can find it. I'm a little too busy at the moment to try to track it down any further. I think that, if it is genuine, it would be often misunderstood or taken out of context.

This is one I keep trying to work on:

"Be hostile to admitting into your soul things that of themselves have no spiritual substance, lest they make you lose your liking for devotion and recollection."

'When He pleases, he becomes fire, which burns up every base passion that has been introduced into the soul; for our God is a consuming fire.' [Heb. 12:29, Deut. 4:24]

St. Macarius the Great

'Repentance signifies a firm resolution not to return to a sin. For this reason precisely the righteous are called blameless, for they have abandoned sin and have been shown righteous.'
