Happy All Saints Day!
In honor of today’s feast day I am sharing some of my favorite saint quotes that I have found and kept in my Bullet Journals over the years. I just love reading saint quotes they are so inspiring. Also some of these quotes are from homilies or podcasts and may have no author but I thought they were too good not to share!

BELOW ARE QUOTES I HAD WRITTEN DOWN WITH UNKNOWN SOURCES AND AUTHORS. Many of these probably came from Mass Homilies or Podcasts I have listened to in the past.
“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”
“Don’t watch the clock; do what it does – keep going!”
“Quality is not an act, it is a habit. ”
“If you can dream it. You can do it.”
“The heart’s job is to love but the heads job is to lead.”
And I will end with a video of the Litany of Saints. It’s such a beautiful song.
Do you have a favorite saint? What is your favorite saint quote? I talked about my favorite saint a few weeks ago being St. Therese of Lisieux. The roses my husband bought me for her feast day lasted almost 3 weeks! If that isn’t a powerful prayer i don’t know what is.
