April 10 St. John Francis Regis

The only cure for most of our maladies and infirmities, whether corporal or spiritual, is patience and conformity to the Divine Will, resigning ourselves to the good pleasure of God…

-St. Francis de Sales

 

I am perfectly content to go on suffering in body and soul for years, if that would please God. I am not in the least afraid of living for a long time; I am ready to go on fighting.
The Lord is the rock upon which I stand.

-St. Therese of Lisieux

 

Regina Coeli

Queen of Heaven, rejoice, alleluia:
for the Son you were privileged to bear, alleluia,
is risen as he said, alleluia.
Pray for us to God, alleluia.

Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia!
For the Lord has truly risen, alleluia!

Let us pray. O God, who gave joy to the world through the Resurrection of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, grant, we beseech You, that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may obtain the joys of everlasting life. Through the same Christ our Lord.

Amen.
