St Anthony quotes

St Anthony of Padua (1195-1231)
Last Saturday June 13 was the liturgical feast of St Anthony. Since it was also the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, unfortunately he got bumped. But today I like to give him some credit by sharing with you three of his quotes:

May your love grow in knowledge and understanding so that you may know how to discern not only between good and evil, but also to distinguish between what is good and what is even better.

We need external peace to live with others; we need internal peace to live with ourselves; and we need eternal peace to live with God.

When the rays of the sun strike crystal, it glitters like sparks of a fire. A faithful Christian, illumined by rays like a crystal, ought to illumine his neighbor with the light of good example, through word and deed.

Truly honest people possess a harmonious and pleasant demeanor; nothing reproachable can be found in their actions, nothing inappropriate in their words, nothing indecent in their manner. Being spontaneous and respectful, their behavior wins the admiration and goodwill of all.
