O God, who raised up Saint Ignatius of Loyola in your Church to further the greater glory of your name, grant that by his help we may imitate him in fighting the good fight on earth and merit to receive with him a crown in heaven. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
"Once he heard: these words from Jesus crucified: "you have written well about Me, Thomas. What reward would you like to receive?" And he lovingly answered, "None but Yourself, Lord." - Matins Lesson III on the Feast of S. Thomas Aquinas
"Do you know, dear brethren, what induced Jesus Christ to condescend to be present in our churches by day and night? It was that we might be able to come to Him whenever we wanted to." - St. John Vianney
It is glorious to be able to please God, so little as we are! Our tongue should be employed only in praying, our heart in loving, our eyes in weeping. We are great, and we are nothing… -St. John Vianney
