12-13-13 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

12-13-13
(St. Lucy, Virgin and Martyr)
Isaiah prophesied, “I, the LORD, your God,
teach you what is for your good,
and lead you on the way you should go.
If you would hearken to my commandments,
your prosperity would be like a river,
and your vindication like the waves of the sea;
”  Is 48:17-19

So Listen, beloved.

The Psalmist wrote,
“Blessed the man who follows not the counsel of the wicked
Nor walks in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the company of the insolent,
But delights in the law of the LORD
and meditates on his law day and night.” Ps 1

Then, Follow . . .

Jesus said,
wisdom is vindicated by her works.” Mt 11:16-19

Then, DO . . .

. . . and all will be well with you.
(even if it ends, like Lucy, in martyrdom)

The prefect said to Lucy, “Your words will be silenced,
when the storm of blows falls upon you!
The virgin Lucy answered: “To God’s servants the right words will not be wanting,
for the Holy Spirit speaks in us.” “Yes,” she continued, “all who live piously
and chastely are temples of the Holy Spirit.

Then,” he replied, “I shall order you put with prostitutes
and the Holy Spirit will depart from you.
Lucy said, “If I am dishonored against my will, my chastity will secure
for me a double crown of victory.”  CatholicCulture.org
