Pondering Tidbits of Truth - November 17, 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.



Blessed Pope Paul VI

"The dialogue of salvation is not based on the personal merits of those with whom it is carried out or on the results that may or may not come about. Our Lord teaches: 'It is not the healthy who need a physician...' The dialogue concerning salvation is open to everyone without distinction. Similarly, our own conversations should be potentially universal and capable of embracing all."

(From Encyclical, Ecclesiam suam

C.S. Lewis

"Enemy-occupied territory - that is what this world is. Christianity is the story of how the rightful king has landed, you might say landed in disguise, and is calling us all to take part in a great campaign of sabotage." 

(From Mere Christianity)



 Father Federico Suarez

"Silence is an indispensable condition for keeping things and pondering them in one's heart. Profundity of thought can develop only in a climate of silence.. Too much chatter exhausts our inner strength; it dissipates everything of any value in our heart, which becomes like a bottle of perfume left open for a long time: only water remains with a slight touch of its former fragrance."

(From Mary of Nazareth)
