ACTION IS WHAT MATTERS

Of what use is it to make the Sign of the Cross upon your body if the Sign of the Cross is not upon your heart?God does not want us to simply make pictures of His signs,but to act upon them.
— St Augustine, On Psalm 50:1

HOW TO FOLLOW JESUS

The throne of grace is the cross on which Jesus sits to dispense graces and mercy to all who come to him. 
But we must quickly have recourse to him, if we would find seasonable aid for our salvation: for there will come a time perhaps when we shall no longer be able to find it. 
Let us go quickly then and embrace the cross of Jesus Christ, and let us go with great confidence. 
Let us not be frightened by the sight of our miseries; in Jesus crucified we shall find all riches, all grace.”

St. Alphonsus Liguori
