“Christ beside me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ within me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me.”
– Saint Patrick –

“There would be no need for sermons, if our lives were shining; there would be no need for words, if we bore witness with our deeds. There would be no pagans, if we were true Christians.”
– St. John Chrysostom –
