Quote of the Day (St. Philip Neri, on Forgiveness)

“If a man finds it very hard to forgive injuries, let him look at a crucifix, and think that Christ has shed all His Blood for him, and not only forgave his enemies, but even prayed to his Heavenly Father to forgive them also.” —Catholic missionary St. Philip Neri (1515-1595), quoted in Pietro Giacomo Bacci, The Life of Saint Philip Neri, Apostle of Rome, and Founder of the Congregation of the Oratory (1847)
