'To complain of poverty, is displeasing to God and to men. I never feel so happy as when I bear some of the marks of poverty.'

Yes, and to have it we need only be humble.

'Often our knowledge becomes darkened because we fail to put things into practice. For when we have totally neglected to practice something, our memory of it will gradually disappear.'

St. Benedict Joseph Labre (C): To love God as we ought we require three hearts: in one a heart of fire for God a heart of flesh for our neighbour and a heart of iron towards ourselves.

Bl. Pino Puglisi was known to speak out against some bishops who turned a blind eye to organized crime in Sicily. When asked by someone about the legitimacy of criticizing the Church, he answered that it is sometimes necessary to do so to improve things, and jokingly added:

"But we should always criticize it like a mother, never a mother-in-law!”

'"The voice of the turtledove is heard in our land." So long as men received for their service of God only the temporal and earthly reward of a "land flowing with milk and honey," they were very far from considering themselves as exiles on earth, very far from mourning like turtles, yearning for their heavenly country. Rather they mistook for their fatherland the place of their banishment, and gave themselves up to eating what was fat and drinking what was pleasant. During all this time, therefore, the voice of the turtledove had not yet been heard in our land. But when the promise of the kingdom of heaven was made to them, then men understood that they "have not here a lasting city"; then they began with all eagerness to "seek one that is to come"; and then, for the first time, the voice of the turtle was distinctly heard in our land. For whilst each holy soul was now longing for the presence of Christ, and looking impatiently for the coming of His kingdom, and with sighs and tears saluting from afar her much-desired home in heaven, does it not seem to you, my brethren, that every such soul then on earth was acting the part of a most chaste and mournful turtledove? From that time onward the voice of the turtledove has been heard in our land.'

St. Bernard of Clairvaux
