Christmas Quotes

Such great spiritual quotes are being shared on Facebook this month. I've been sharing them on Facebook too but want a place to save them and ponder them this week. Hope they bless your week as we await the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ:

"Every mother, when she picks up the young life that has been born to her, looks up to the heavens to thank God for the gift which made the world young again. But here was a mother, a madonna, who did not look up. She looked down to Heaven, for this was Heaven in her arms." Archbishop Fulton Sheen

"Reputation is what men and women think of us; character is what God and the angels know of us..." Paine

‎"God creates out of nothing. Wonderful, you say. Yes, to be sure, but He does what is still more wonderful: He makes saints out of sinners." --Soren Kierkegaard

The message of Christmas “is profoundly human,” the Spain Cardinal Lluis Martinez Sistach said, as “the vocation of every human being is above all love—love received and love given.”

"Loving God, you choose to claim my heart as sacred space. Assist me this season in making my heart worthy to be your sanctuary . Amen."--Anonymous

"Remember...all saints have a past and all sinners have a future."---Anonymous

"Listen....can you hear it? It is the sound of silence, a spiritual sound, because the whole Church, the whole mystical Body of Christ, in the holy season of Advent is in the womb of Mary with Christ. All you can hear is Mary's heart beating for her Baby saying, 'Come Emmanuel.' <\i>---Fr. Samuel Medley Solt
