Pondering Tidbits of Truth - July 17, 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.


Bishop Guiseppe Sarto (St. Pope Pius X)


"A priest's life is a continual warfare against evil, which cannot fail to raise up powerful enemies. In order that they may not prevail against us, let us be united in charity amongst ourselves; thus we shall be invincible and strong as a rock." 

  (Letter to Pastors)


Jesus to St. Catherine of Siena

"Having perfect love toward neighbor depends essentially on having perfect love for Me. The same measure of perfection or imperfection that the soul puts into its love for Me is found also in the love it bears to creatures."

(The Dialogue)

St. Pius X 

"We must fight the capital crime of our day, which is the substitution of man for God; we must illumine with the Ten Commandments, with the evangelical counsels, and with the institutions of the Church all the problems that the Church and the Gospel have so clearly and triumphantly resolved; in education, in family life, in private ownership, in rights and duties, we must restore Christian equilibrium among the difficult conditions of society; we must pacify the earth and inherit heaven. This is the mission I must carry out among you, restoring all things to the reign of God, of Jesus Christ, and His Vicar on earth the Pope."

(From Encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis (Feeding The Lord's Flock)
