Pondering Tidbits of Truth - April 24, 2014

Pondering Tidbits of Truth is my simple and inadequate way of providing nuggets of spiritual wisdom for you to chew on from time to time.





Blessed John Paul II


"...the numbing of conscience, their indifference to good and evil, their deviations, are a great threat for man. Indirectly, they are also a great threat for society, because in the the last analysis the level of morality of society depends on the human conscience."
(Angelus, March 15, 1981)

Eucharistic Reflection - We Too Are A Stiff Neck People



[Blessed soon to be Saint John Paul II had this to say about the Eucharist: “This Sacrament of Love shall be the center of the life of the people of God.”]

“The Blessed Sacrament is Jesus living in our midst to fulfill a promise made long ago: ‘I Myself will pas­ture my sheep. I Myself will give them rest, says the Lord God. The lost I will seek out, the strayed I will bring back, the injured I will bind up, the sick I will heal’ (Ezek 34:15-16).

Monday Musings - Forgotten Truths - An Unexpected Blessing


As I have said many times, the power of the words in Forgotten Truths to Set Faith Afire! - Words to Inspire, Challenge and Instruct "opened my eyes, spoke to my heart and stirred my soul". I was and remain convinced that these Truths could and would "awaken a hunger in others to know, study and live more fully the Truths of the Catholic Faith".

In one interview I stated that if that hope became a reality for at least one other person, then my labor of love in compiling these quotations would have been worth the effort.
