Pondering Tidbits of Truth - May 19, 2016

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.
Dr. Paul Thigpen

"No matter who you are -- whether or not you know it -- you have a mortal enemy who wants to destroy you, not just in this life, but in the next. It's a spiritual war with crucial consequences in your everyday life. And the outcome of that war will determine your eternal destiny." 

(From a Spiritual Warfare Manual by Dr. Paul Thigpen)

St. John Paul II

"Make a particular effort to seek Jesus and attain a deep personal faith which influences and directs your whole life; but above all may your commitments and plans consist in loving Jesus, with a sincere, genuine and personal love. He should be your friend and your support along the way of life. He alone has the words of eternal life.

(From January 30, 1979 Address) 

Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

"If sometimes our poor people have had to die of starvation, it is not because God didn't care for them, but because you and I didn't give, were not instruments of love in the hands of God, to give them that bread, to give them that clothing; because we did not recognize Him, when once more Christ came in distressing disguise - in the hungry man, in the lonely man, in the homeless child, seeking for shelter."

(From The Kiss of Jesus by Donna Marie Cooper O'Boyle)
