Pondering Tidbits of Truth - April 5, 2018




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. Martin de Porres

"Compassion, my dear Brothers, is preferable to cleanliness. Reflect that with a little soap I can easily clean my bed covers, but even with a torrent of tears I would never wash from my soul the stain that my harshness toward the unfortunate would create." 


(From Hounds of the Lord: Great Dominican Saints Every Catholic Should Know)



Cardinal Robert Sarah

We need priests who are men of the interior life, ‘God’s watchmen’ and pastors passionately committed to the evangelization of the world, and not social workers or politicians

(From God or Nothing: A Conversation in Faith with Nicholas Diat)



St. John Chrysostom

"There is nothing to be dreaded in human ills except sin—not poverty, or disease, or insult, or ill treatment, or dishonor, or death, which people call the worst of evils. To those who love spiritual wisdom, these things are only the names of disasters, names that have no substance. No, the true disaster is to offend God, to do anything that displeases him." 


(From A Year with the Church Fathers: Patristic Wisdom for Daily Living by Mike Aquilina)
