O Holy Apostle Philip,

Intercede with the merciful God

That he may grant our souls forgiveness of sins.



Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory for ever!  +  Slava Isusu Christu!  Slava i vo viki!


From the Saints of the Church …

Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta  

“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”

“Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.”

“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then just feed one.”

“We cannot do great things on this Earth, only small things with great love.”

“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.”

“Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.”

“I’m a little pencil in the hand of a writing God, who is sending a love letter to the world.”

“I know God won’t give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish He didn’t trust me so much.”

“What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.”
