Saint John Henry Newman

"I say, that we must not only have faith in the Lord,
but must wait on him;
not only must hope,
but must watch for him;
not only love him,
but must long for him;
not only obey him,
but must look out,
look up earnestly for our reward,
which is himself.

We must not only make him the Object
of our faith, hope and charity,
but we must make it our duty
not to believe the world,
not to hope in the world,
not to love the world."

Blessed John Henry Newman
