Pondering Tidbits of Truth

(Abbey at Genesee, Piffard, NY)

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.

St. Thomas Aquinas
“If you are looking for an example of patience, behold there on the cross the most excellent example of patience. For great patience is shown in two ways. Either when anyone endures great pain with resignation or when anyone endures that which he was able to avoid and did not avoid.”

(From The Aquinas Catechism: A Simple Explanation)

Pius X

“Most of the evils which beset the Church and most of the problems with which the Catholic Church is plagued, are not due to bad will. No, they are mainly due to ignorance of Christ’s revealed truth.”  

(From Acerbo Nimis, 1)

Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

 “…Christ affirms that when a man marries a woman, he marries both her body and her soul; he marries the whole person. If he gets tired of the body, he may not thrust her body away for another, since he is still responsible for her soul.” 
(From The Life of Christ)
