Pondering Tidbits of Truth - Week of July 19, 2012

(In the event you are not familar with the purpose of this post, take a quick look here).

This week's offerings:

From St. Teresa of Avila:

“The whole aim of any person who is beginning prayer – and don’t forget this, because it is very important   – should be that he work and prepare himself with determination and every effort to bring his will in conformity with God’s will.”

(From Interior Castle)

From Scripture:

“He summoned the crowd with His disciples and said to them: ‘If a man wishes to come after me, he must deny his very self, take up his cross and follow in My steps. Whoever will preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will preserve it’.”
(Mark 8:34-35)

From St. Augustine

“Love of self till God is forgotten or love of God till self is forgotten.”

(From The City of God)

(You can find my initial offerings here).
