Our Lady of the Clergy

It is not enough to have some sort of desire of virtue and perfection . . . The greater the love and desire of the end, the greater the care and diligence that are employed to gain it. Thus it is very important that the desire and affection for virtue and perfection be great, since the care and diligence in securing and gaining it will be great in proportion . . . where the desire of advancement in perfection is not found, there will be very little hope.

St. Alphonsus Rodriguez

These free, original prints (designed by me whenever I experience a window of time and a spurt of inspiration!) offer motivating quotes from the Saints and traditional Catholic writings on striving after specific virtues. Print them out, frame them, tape them up, keep them, or give them away!

In exchange for each download, would you kindly offer one Hail Mary for the spiritual protection of all our priests? God will reward you!
