Pondering Tidbits Of Truth - January 31, 2013



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.


Servant of God, Madeleine Delbrel
"The basic revelation of the Gospel is the overwhelming, penetrating presence of God. It is a call to encounter God, and God allows Himself to be encountered only in solitude."
(From We, the Ordinary People of the Streets)


John of Kronstadt, a Russian Orthodox priest and saint

"What would happen, O my Lord God, Jesus Christ, if You made the light of Your divinty to shine from Your most Holy Sacrament, when the priest brings It in his hands to a sick person? Before this light, all who would encounter It or see It would fall prostrate on the groune spontaneously, just as the angels cover their faces before this Sacrament. While on the other hand, so many treat this heavenly Sacrament with indifference."

(From Dominus Est - It Is The Lord! by Most Rev. Athansius Schneider)
 
 
 
Venerable Fulton J. Sheen
 
"A prophet is a Divine Troubler, not a political troubler. He is always a disturber of worldy peace; he makes listeners feel uneasy."
 
(From Divine Troubler by Carl E. Olson, Our Sunday Visitor, October 3, 2013)
