Thoughts of a Few January Saints
"We can believe what we choose. We are answerable for what we choose to believe."
St John Neumann January 4
"Practice charity with your neighbor--and this doesn't mean only to give money to the poor. There are many ways to practice charity. We could, for example, keep ourselves from examining our neighbor's conscience."
St. Andre Bessette January 6
"Many of the people who look forward to a long life put off doing good works, since they think that they will have plenty of time before they die. As for me, I prefer to be among those who consider that they have no time to lose if they wish to give God all the glory that they can before they die."
St. Margaret of Hungary January 18
"Half an hour's meditation each day is essential, except when you are busy. Then a full hour is needed."
St. Francis deSales January 24
"The things that we love tell us what we are."
St. Thomas Aquinas January 28
"Act today in such a way that you need not blush tomorrow."
St. John Bosco January 31
