" "Witness in an age when words which convey truth are judged offensive will make martyrdom more common than we imagined when first we learned that truth." – Father Kevin M. Cusick

Pondering Tidbits of Truth - August 13, 2015

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.




St. Maria Faustina Kowalska

"From today on, my own will does not exist…From today on, I do the will of God everywhere, always and in everything."

(From Diary of St. Maria Faustina)


St. Leonard of Port Maurice

"...who could have ever imagined that the voice of a man, which by nature hath not the power even to raise a straw from the ground, should obtain through grace a power so stupendous to bring from Heaven to earth the Son of God! It is a greater power than that which would be required to change the place of mountains, to dry up the seas, and to turn around the heavens; it even emulates in a certain manner that first 'fiat' with which God brought all things out of nothing..."

(From Treatise on the Mass)

Father Benedict Baur

"Recognize in yourself a limb, a branch of Christ (the body, the vine) living, grafted-on and ingrowing, nourished by His strength and grace." 


(From In Silence With God)
