The Quoting Catholic

Quoting the Bible, Prayers, Saints, and Other Notable Catholics

“Never abandon prayer, even when it seems pointless to pray” 

Pope Francis 


“Time and time again He bears us on His shoulders. No one can strip us of the dignity bestowed upon us by this boundless and unfailing love. With a tenderness which never disappoints, but is always capable of restoring our joy, He makes it possible for us to lift up our heads and to start anew. Let us not flee from the resurrection of Jesus, let us never give up, come what will. May nothing inspire more than His life, which impels us onwards!”

-Pope Francis
