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.

"Tens of millions of unborn babies have been slaughtered; illegitimacy rates have soared; divorce has skyrocketed; pornography is rampant; drug use has exploded; sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDS have killed millions; birth control is a way of life; sex outside of wedlock has become the norm; countless children have been permanently damaged - their innocence lost forever - because of the proliferation of broken homes; and sodomy and homosexuality are celebrated openly. America has become the new Babylon."

(From Washington Times)

St. Maria Faustina Kowalska

"I am giving you three ways of exercising mercy toward your neighbor: the first - by deed, the second - by word, the third - by prayer. In these three degrees is contained the fullness of mercy, and it is an unquestionable proof of love of me." -

(From Divine Mercy In My Soul - The Diary)

David Torkington

“The difference between saints and ourselves, is not that we sin and they do not, but the speed with which they turn back to God to seek forgiveness. Sometimes it takes days, weeks, months or even years before we have the humility to accept that we have fallen, and then seek the forgiveness we need before beginning again. So we waste so much time that could have been saved, if only we had the sort of humility that enabled the saints to begin again without delay the very moment they were conscious of falling.”

(From Wisdom of the Christian Mystics)
