A faithful Catholic, operating according to God’s will and his plan, is always and everywhere, an awesome power for good

April 30, is the the Feast of St. Catherine of Siena, Doctor of the Church, defender of the Papacy.

(Courtesy of Ann Barnhardt’s website) here’s a small sampling of Saint Catherine’s great work:

Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.

Start being brave about everything. Drive out darkness and spread light. Don’t look at your weaknesses. Realize instead that in Christ crucified you can do everything.

He will provide the way and the means, such as you could never have imagined. Leave it all to Him, let go of yourself, lose yourself on the Cross, and you will find yourself entirely.

To the servant of God… every place is the right place, and every time is the right time.

You must believe in truth, that whatever God gives or permits is for your salvation.

Enrich your soul in the great goodness of God: The Father is your table, the Son is your food, and the Holy Spirit waits on you and then makes His dwelling in you.

Of course you are unworthy. But when do you hope to be worthy? You will be no more worthy at the end than at the beginning. God alone is worthy of Himself, He alone can make us worthy of Him.
