" "To attribute to God, and not to self, whatever good one sees in oneself; but to recognize always that the evil is one's own doing, and to impute it on one's self." -St. Benedict

Pondering Tidbits of Truth - February 25, 2016

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. Thomas Aquinas

"Just as is the case of a natural body the activity of one member can redound to the benefit of the whole, so too with regard to the spiritual body of the Church. Since all the faithful form one body, the good performed by one member benefits the whole."
(From On the Creed) 


Blessed Pope Paul VI

"The preacher of the Gospel will therefore be a person who, even at the price of personal renunciation and suffering, always seeks the truth that he must transmit to others. He never betrays or hides truth out of a desire to please men, in order to astonish or shock, nor for the sake of originality or a desire to make an impression."

(From Apostolic Exhortation, Evangeli nuntiandi, December 8, 1975)



Jesus to St. Catherine of Siena 

"My Will only wants your good, and all that I give or allow, I allow or give so that you may achieve your end, for which I created you."

(From The Dialogue)
