" "Neither earth nor rock could have held the Cross, nor could the Cross of nails have held God’s only-begotten Son, had not love held him fast.” – St. Catherine of Siena

Pondering Tidbits of Truth - September 27, 2012


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.


From St. John Eudes

“Our wish, our object, our chief preoccupation must be to form Jesus in ourselves, to make His spirit, His devotion, His affections, His desires and His disposition live and reign there. All our religious exercises should be directed to this end. It is the work which God has given us to do unceasingly.” 
                      (The Life and Reign of Jesus in Christian Souls)



From Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen


"Moral principles do not depend on a majority vote. Wrong is wrong, even 'if everybody' is wrong. Right is right, even if nobody is right."



From Thomas Dubay, S.M.
 

In the view of St. Teresa of Avila and of St. John of the Cross, many think they are “listening to the Spirit”, whereas in fact they are hearing nothing other than their own ideas and desires. They baptize their own preferences and somehow convince themselves, at times others as well, that they enjoy a privileged access to the divine.
 
(From Fire Within)
