We may trust God with our past as heartily as with our future.
--George MacDonald

Feast of Saint Anthony of Padua

Someone may ask how the Virgin gave birth to the Savior. She begot Him as a blossom emanates perfume. The blossom of the vine remains incorrupt after it has given off its perfume, and so likewise, faith leads us to believe that the modesty of the Virgin—the modesty with which She gave birth to the Savior—was not violated.
--words of Saint Anthony of Padua

Saint Anthony, pray for us.
