Pondering Tidbits of Truth-June 2, 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.

Pope Pius XII

"God lets Himself be seen by those who are able to see Him because they have the eyes of their soul open. Everyone has eyes, but the eyes of some are blinded  as it were in darkness and they cannot see the light of the sun. But the light of the sun does not cease to shine simply because these sightless ones fail to see it; rather is this darkness due to their own inability to see."

(From Encyclical Humani generis, August 15, 1950)

Blessed Alvaro del Portillo

"It is only  in prayer, in the intimacy of a face-to-face and personal dialogue with God which opens up the mind and heart (cf Acts 16:14), that the man of faith can deepen his understanding of God's will with respect to his own life."

(From On Priesthood)

St. Theophilus of Antioch

"Man, influenced by prejudices or stirred up by his passions or bad will, is not only able to deny the evidence of external signs plain to be seen before his very eyes, but can also resist and reject the higher inspirations God infuses into his soul."

(From Book I, 2,7)
