" "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 - December 10, 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. John Chrysostom


“When you are weary of praying, and do not receive, consider how often you have heard a poor man calling, and have not listened to him.”


(From Contemplative Provocations by Father Donald Haggerty)


Venerable Fulton J. Sheen 

“Those who have their finger on the pulse of contemporary civilization have probably noted that there are two contradictory charges against religions today.  The first is that religion is not political enough; the other is that religion is too political.  On the one hand, the Church is blamed for being too divine, and on the other, for not being divine enough.  It is hated because it is too heavenly and hated because it is too earthly.”

(From Characters of the Passion) 


Francis Fernandez

“If we want to rise with Christ we have to accompany him on his journey to the Cross: we do this by accepting life’s trials and tribulations with calmness and serenity.” 

(From In Conversation With God)
