Quotes from the Saints


Saints are one of Godís gifts to us. They experienced many of the same joys and sorrows; happiness and heartaches that we too have experienced, or will in our lifetime. As Christians, we can look up to them and their example in our own walk with Christ.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from a few of the saints.


Saint Augustine

"Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe."

"Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you."

"He who created us without our help will not save us without our consent."

"If you believe what you like in the gospels, and reject what you don't like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself."

"Nothing whatever pertaining to godliness and real holiness can be accomplished without grace."

"Christ is not valued at all unless He is valued above all."


Saint Francis of Assisi

"Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words."

"Lord, grant that I might not so much seek to be loved as to love."

"While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it even more fully in your heart."

"Lord grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."


Saint Jerome

"Be at peace with your own soul, then heaven and earth will be at peace with you."

"The friendship that can cease has never been real."

"Good, better, best. Never let it rest. 'Til your good is better and your better is best."

"Love is not to be purchased, and affection has no price."

"The face is the mirror of the mind, and eyes without speaking confess the secrets of the heart."


Saint Patrick

"The Lord opened the understanding of my unbelieving heart, so that I should recall my sins."

"Christ beside me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ within me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me."


Saint Teresa of Avila

"We can only learn to know ourselves and do what we can - namely, surrender our will and fulfill God's will in us."

"There are more tears shed over answered prayers than over unanswered prayers."

"Pain is never permanent."

"All things must come to the soul from its roots, from where it is planted."

"The tree that is beside the running water is fresher and gives more fruit."
