Pondering Tidbits of Truth - October 23, 2013

(Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center)
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.

Frank Morriss

“The Church exists to serve man by showing him the ultimate truths that pertain to his spiritual well-being. It exists to show man the path to heaven and salvation, and to light his way on the path with the light of Christ. It is false to its vocation when it is more concerned with man’s temporal happiness and well-being than the State of his immortal soul.”

(From Lumen Gentium: The Church of Our Time Looks at Herself)


St. Francis de Sales 

“Tribulations considered in themselves are dreadful things: looked at in God’s Will, they are things of love and delight.”

((From Finding God’s Will For You)

Ven. Fulton J. Sheen

“Tolerance applies only to persons, but never to principles. Intolerance applies only to principles, but never to persons. We must be tolerant to persons because they are human; we must be intolerant about principles because they are divine. We must be tolerant to the erring, because ignorance may have led them astray; but we must be intolerant to the error, because Truth is not our making, but God's. And hence the Church in her history, due reparation made, has always welcomed the heretic back into the treasury of her souls, but never his heresy into the treasury of her wisdom.”

(From Moods and Truths)
