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
“To take the Word of God seriously, we need all the strength of the Holy Spirit. If our witness is often mediocre, it is because we have not realized that the same kind of heroism is needed to be a witness as to be a martyr.”
(From We, the Ordinary People of the Streets)
Father Winfrid Herbst, S.D.S.
"I am sure many lost souls in hell right now would cry out to preachers and writers if they could: Oh, why did you not tell us more about the horrors of hell? Why did you not strike such fear into our hearts by your realistic description of hell that we would have made greater efforts to avoid it?...Why did you spare our feelings in a matter of such eternal moment? Oh, why did you not make hell a thousand times hotter than you did, then perhaps we would not be here today?"
(From The Way To God)
“How much of my effort goes into securing prosperity and peace for myself and my family? How much of my effort goes into securing heaven for us?”
(From A Year with the Church Fathers)
