Pondering Tidbits of Truth - December 6, 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.
 
 
Madeleine Delbrel, Servant of God
 

 “Once we have heard God’s Word, we no longer have the right not to accept it; once we have accepted it, we no longer have the right not to let it become flesh in us; once it has become flesh in us, we no longer have the right to keep it for ourselves alone. Henceforward, we belong to all those who are waiting for the Word.” 
 
(From We, the Ordinary People of the Streets)


Sister Josefa Menendez

 “I saw several souls fall into Hell, and among them a child of fifteen, cursing her parents for not having taught her to fear God, and that Hell actually exits.”

(From The Way of Divine Love)

Anne Costa
 
“There are no unforgivable sins, only unconfessed ones, and there are no sins greater than God’s mercy.”
 (From Lord, I Hurt!)
 
 
Jean-Baptiste Chautard, O.C.S.O.
 
 “It is impossible to meditate upon the consequences of the dogma of the Real Presence, of the Sacrifice of the Altar, and of Communion without being led to the conclusion that Our Lord wanted to institute this Sacrament in order to make it the center of all action, of all loyal idealism, of every apostolate that could be of any real use to the Church.
(From The Soul of the Apostolate)
