Pondering Tidbits of Truth - January 15, 2015

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. Peter Julian Eymard

"If you read the Gospel, bring it to the Eucharist and, from the Eucharist, into yourself. You then have much greater power. The Gospel becomes clear, and you have before your eyes and in reality the continuation of what you are reading."

(From Adore in Spirit and In Truth)  

Father Jean Nicholas Grou

"Let us be just to ourselves; and let us confess in all humility that if God had not specially watched over us, there is no crime, however terrible, into which our natural corruption might not have led us. Let us thank God, both for those sins which He has forgiven us, and for those from which He has preserved us. And let us say, with St. Augustine, that there is no crime that one man has committed that another man is not capable of, and that he would not, perhaps, commit, in very deed, if it were not for divine assistance."

(From The Spiritual Life - A Comprehensive  Guide for Catholics Seeking Salvation)

St. Francis de Sales

Happy is the heart that loves God with no other pleasure but that which it takes in pleasing God! What purer and more perfect pleasure can we ever have than that which we take in God’s pleasure?

(From Finding God’s Will for You)
