Maxims of the Saints

I love the stories of the Saints and the inspiration that I always glean from their zeal for life and their love for God. They are often quoted, little catchy sayings that are so simple and yet so packed with wisdom. Some of my favorite maxims are:

  • “Love spurs us on to do great things, and makes all that is bitter sweet and savory.” – St Teresa of Jesus (Avila)
  • “At the end of our life, we shall all be judged by charity.” – St John of the Cross
  • “Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” – Bl. Mother Teresa of Calcutta
  • “Jesus, if you want it, I want it too!” – Bl. Chiara Luce Badano
  • “Those who love are never tired, since love knows no burden.” – St Magdalene of Canossa*

The list goes on! Come check out the whole post at:
