Our Lord hears our prayers anywhere, but He has revealed to His servants that those who visit Him in the Blessed Sacrament will obtain a more abundant measure of grace.” St. Alphonsus Liguori.

“Know my daughter that my treasures are surrounded by thorns, you just have to determine yourself to endure the first stings and then everything will be transformed into sweetness.” Revelations of St. Brigid. 

“Be careful in preaching the truth in such a way that, if among the crowd there is a heretic, thy preaching to them be an example of charity and Christian moderation. Do not use harsh words, nor show contempt for their errors.” St. Ignatius Loyola.

“When we do not have love of God within ourselves, we are very poor. We become like a tree without flowers and fruits.” St. John Vianney.

“Let us always try to look at the virtues and good things we see in others, and mantle their defects with our great sins… to think of others as better than ourselves.” St. Teresa of Avila.

“Let us always try to live in the friendship of God.” John Bosco.

“The Eucharist and the Virgin Mary are the two columns that must sustain our lives.” St. John Bosco.

“The greatest method of praying is to pray the Rosary.” St. Francis of Sales.

“Go to the Madonna. Love her! Always say the Rosary. Say it well. Say it as often as you can! Be souls of prayer. Never tire of praying, it is what is essential. Prayer shakes the Heart of God, it obtains necessary graces!” Padre Pio.

“The Rosary is the most beautiful and the most rich in graces of all prayers; it is the prayer that touches most the Heart of the Mother of God. If you wish peace to reign in your homes, recite the family Rosary.” Pope Saint Pius X. 

“Vocal prayer must be accompanied by reflection. A prayer in which a person is not aware of whom he is speaking to, what he is asking, who it is who is asking and of Whom, I don't call prayer, however much the lips may move.” St. Teresa of Avila.

“Those who give themselves to prayer should in a special manner have always a devotion to St. Joseph; for I know not how any man can think of the Queen of the angels, during the time that she suffered so much with the Infant Jesus, without giving thanks to St. Joseph for the services he rendered them then.” St. Teresa of Avila.
