We do not have to wait for the hereafter — it is now that we are one with Christ.
Doherty quotes
Lord, give me the heart of a child, and the awesome courage to live it out as an adult.
Doherty
What you do matters — but not much. What you are matters tremendously.




Doherty Catherine quotes
To pass through the door that leads to God's kingdom, we must go down on our knees.
Doherty Catherine
We do not go to mission lands to 'bring Jesus Christ' as much as to uncover him where he already is.
Catherine Doherty quotes
Lord, give bread to the hungry, and hunger for you to those who have bread.
Catherine Doherty
God reveals himself to those who wait for that revelation, and who don't try to tear at the hem of a mystery, forcing disclosure.
Doherty Catherine quotes
A saint is a sinner who loves; it's that simple!
Doherty
Purity of heart is love for the weak who constantly fall.
Doherty Catherine
You live between two Masses. You exist in the present moment.
Catherine Doherty
The duty of the moment is what you should be doing at any given time, in whatever place God has put you. You may not have Christ in a homeless person at your door, but you may have a little child. If you have a child, your duty of the moment may be to change a dirty diaper. So you do it. But you don’t just change that diaper, you change it to the best of your ability, with great love for both God and that child.... There are all kinds of good Catholic things you can do, but whatever they are, you have to realize that there is always the duty of the moment to be done. And it must be done, because the duty of the moment is the duty of God.




Catherine Doherty quotes
With God, every moment is the moment of beginning again.
Catherine Doherty
Preach the Gospel with your life — without compromise!
Doherty quotes
Pain is the kiss of Christ.
Doherty Catherine
Real zeal is standing still and letting God be a bonfire in you.
Doherty Catherine quotes
Faith sees God's face in every human face.
Catherine Doherty
Love... love... love, never counting the cost.
Catherine Doherty quotes
I am third.
Catherine Doherty
What binds us together is love, and only love. For love is a Person. Love is God.
