Selected Sayings Of Catherine McAuley


Prayer is a plant…  If it is cultivated and nourished it will produce abundant fruit…

While we place our confidence in God, we must act as if success depended on our own exertions.

God does not look at the action but at the spirit motivating it.

We must endeavour to keep ourselves in God’s presence, united to Him by faith….

What would the charity of God have profited us, if His mercy had not come to our aid.

The tender mercy of God has given us one another.

‘Love one another as I have loved you,’ should be engraved on our… souls, and shown in our whole conduct.

Be ever ready to praise, to encourage, to stimulate, but slow to censure… to condemn.

Let us pray well an never get weary of doing what is good.

… Our hearts can always be in the same place, centred in God, for whom alone we go forward or stay back.
