From the homily of Card. Tarcisio Bertone for the beatification

«"Every Christian is called to renewed fidelity to Sunday participation in the Eucharist", source of strength "to be able to witness effectively to the faith in today's de-Christianised world". (...) "From Holy Mass also the pilgrim Church in Slovenia draws inspiration and strength to be able to witness effectively to the faith". (...) "Looking well at the history of the Slovenian Church, in particular at the violent persecutions it has suffered in the last century (think of the periods of foreign occupation, the civil war and the atheist regime) we see how the Eucharist has been, for the people of God, the main point of reference where they can find support, strength and consolation".»

Benedict XVI to Catholic Action – Rome, 4 May 2008

«These witnesses, who followed Jesus with all their strength,
who spared no efforts for the Church and for the Kingdom of God,
represent your most authentic identity card.
Is it not still possible today for you boys and girls, young people and adults,
to make your life a witness of communion with the Lord
that is transformed into a genuine masterpiece of holiness?
Is this not your Association's purpose?»
