Pondering Tidbits of Truth - May 4, 2017






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.


 



Brother Lawrence

"It is not necessary for being with God to always at church. We make an oratory of our heart wherein to retire from time to time to converse with Him in meekness, humility, and love. Everyone is capable of such familiar conversation with God, some more, some less. He knows what we can do.Let us begin, then."

(From The Practice of the Presence of God)


St. Theresa of Avila 

"I would accept Purgatory until the Last Judgment to deliver but one of them [souls]. And what do I care how long I suffer, if I can thus set free a single soul, let alone many souls, for the greater glory of God." 

(From The Interior Castle) or soul of Apostolate


St. Alphonsus Liguori 

"The good morals and the salvation of the people depend on good pastors. If there is a good priest in charge of a parish, you will soon see devotion flourishing, people frequenting the sacraments and honoring the practice of mental prayer. Hence the proverb: like pastor, like parish."

(From The Soul of the Apostolate)
