Latin Doctor Quote Of The Day

Saint Ambrose:

"For divine favors are conferred not on those who sleep, but on those who watch"

Comment is taken from Mystici Corporis by His Holiness Venerable Pius XII:
'No one of course can deny that the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ is the one source of whatever supernatural power enters into the Church and its members. For "the Lord will give grace and glory" as the Psalmist says (Ps. LXXXIII,12).But that men should persevere constantly in their good works, that they should advance eagerly in grace and virtue, that they should strive earnestly to reach the heights of Christian perfection and at the same time to the best of their power should stimulate others to attain the same goal, -- all this the heavenly Spirit does not will to effect unless they contribute their daily share of zealous activity.'
