Pondering Tidbits of Truth - June 26, 2014

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. Teresa of Avila 

"Let us strive always to look at the virtues and good deeds we see in others and cover their defects with the thought of our own great sins. This is a manner of acting that, although we cannot do sow with perfection right way, gradually gains for us a great virtue - that of considering all other men as being better than ourselves. In such a way, whht the help of God, one begins to acquire this virtue."

(From The Book of Her Life)

Blessed Dom Columba Marmion

“A priest can do so much for God if, in offering the Holy Sacrifice, he unites the oblation of himself, his life, his love, all he has, with that of the Divine Victim. He can obtain priceless graces for all mankind, can stay the anger of God, and gain powerful aid for the Church, not to speak of the great merit he gains for himself. Let us try to be faithful and loving towards Our dear Lord. It is in the heart of the priest He expects to repose, when He is outraged by sinners; and also, He so often finds even there but coldness and ingratitude.”

(From Vultus Christi, June 25, 2014)

Father M. Eugene Boylan, O.C.R.

“We have our own plans for our happiness, and too often we look upon God as someone who will help us to carry them out. The true state of affairs is invariably the reverse of this. God has his own perfect plans for our happiness, and is waiting for us to help him carry them out. And let it be clear that we can in no way improve on God's plans.”

(From This Tremendous Lover)
