" "The apostle is a chalice full to the brim with the life of Jesus, and his overflow pours itself out upon souls." _ Father Mateo Crawley-Boevey

Pondering Tidbits of Truth - April 20, 2017

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. Leo the Great

"Whoever truly wishes to venerate the Passion of the Lord should contemplate Jesus crucified with eyes of his soul, and in such a way that he identifies his own body with that of Jesus."


(From Sermon 15 on the Passion)


St. Alphonsus Liguori

"But God is merciful. Behold another common delusion by which the devil encourages sinners to persevere in sin! A certain author has said that more souls have been sent to hell by the mercy of God than by His justice. This indeed is the case; for men are induced by the deceits of the devil to persevere in sin, through confidence in God's mercy; and thus they are lost."

(From Sermons For All the Sundays of the Year )

 
Servant of God, Madeleine Delbrel

"In the area of God's work we are all assigned precise tasks, for it is God who initiated each work and brings each to completion. He works unceasingly; He doesn't give us the leisure to mess around doing nothing."

(From The Joy of Believing)
