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.







Adolphe Tanquerey

"Every one of us contributes in some way toward increasing the suffering of Christ. For this reason, we should rejoice to be able to meditate slowly on sin's impact on the loving Hearts of Jesus and Mary. We will then accept our share in their suffering and make reparation gladly."

(From The Divinization of Suffering


Dietrich Bonhoeffer


“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”
 


St. John Paul II

“The continuous struggle against the devil that characterizes Michael the Archangel is still going on since the devil who seeks to take advantage of every situation, is still living and operative in the world. There are periods in which the existence of evil among men becomes singularly apparent. We have the impression today that people do not want to see the problem. Everything possible is done to remove from public awareness the existence of the 'cunning attacks of the devil', who 'holds dominion over the underworld' as spoken of in Ephesians. Nevertheless, there are historical periods when the profound truth of this revela­tion of faith is expressed with greater force and is almost tan­gibly perceived.

(Address, 24 May 1987)
