Thoughts of Ven. Baltasar
"The Eucharist through Mary, and Mary with the Eucharist to save souls."
"Education is the most noble of the companies and the best well that can be a man."
(When talking about his mother): "My first teacher, who without knowing letters, a science that I could find in any book has taught me"
(The day of his ordination of priests wrote): "I became and I went to the Tabernacle, where, prostrate myself to the Lord, as a child that looks something very large it surprised him and don't know what to say, but believe and trust in him"
"First you have to fill the empty stomachs if we then fill their heads of knowledge and their hearts of love of God"
"The remarkable note of our vocation must be the generosity without limits".
The love that had children was becoming "santa chifladura".
"To win the people should be before that nothing heart and after all what you can".
"There was, Yes, a populous neighborhood of Atocha, where misery and weakness had his seat and the ignorance of the catechism and the ignorance and contempt of the religion prevailed and dominated in most and almost all of the spirits".
"That was the neighborhood of my loves, the neighborhood of my dreams".
"You'll be, dear neighborhood of Atocha, from today, my father, my mother and my brothers".
"Trust in God is the best wisdom and all our power."
"Trust in God gives sufficient courage to face any situation."
"Nothing is as cheerful as the works of God because he is the source of true joy."
"Educating women is to educate men and raise peoples".
"The work of Atocha is great because it is the children, because it is the poor, because he was born of nothing to remedy the great needs of the neighborhood, and because it is God's."
(Speaking of his death, told Cardinal Quiroga Palacios): "My desire is to stay among the children to continue with them in visiting Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament".
