Happy Feast Day of Bl. Frédéric Ozanam!!    
¡Feliz día del Beato Federico Ozanam!

September 9

“It seems that one must see in order to love,
and we only see God with the eyes of faith...and our faith is so weak!
But men and the poor, we see them with human eyes,
‘they are there, and we can put our finger and our hand in their wounds’...,
And we should fall at their feet and say to them with the apostle... ‘You are my Lord and my God...”

9 de Septiembre

“Hace falta ver para amar,
y a Dios sólo lo vemos con los ojos de la fe.  Y nuestra fe es tan débil.
Pero a los hombres como a los pobres los vemos con ojos humanos,   
ellos están ahí y podemos poner el dedo y la mano en sus llagas….
Y deberíamos caer a sus pies y decirles como el apóstol:
‘Tu es Dominus et Deus meus’, Señor mio y Dios mio….”
