Sayings of St Philip

St Philip left very few writings behind when he died, but he did leave us many sayings, for example:

“Just as much love as we give to creatures, just so much we take from the Creator.”

“Nothing helps a man more than prayer.”

“The true servant of God acknowledges no other country but heaven.”

“We have no time to sleep here, for paradise was not made for sluggards.”

“The great thing is to become saints.”

“When shall we begin to do good?”

“Do not let a day pass without doing some good during it.”

“The love of God makes us do great things.”

“There is nothing the devil fears so much, or so much tries to hinder, as prayer.”

“Even in the midst of a crowd we can pursue perfection.”
