Pondering Tidbits of Truth - May 24, 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.

Dom Eugene Bryant

No one can truly say he loves his Savior if he does not feel ready to embrace the sufferings God sends him, in order to lighten the load that the Savior had to bear in the Agony in the Garden.”

St. Vincent de Paul

"Let each of us accept the truth of the following statement and try to make it our most fundamental principle: Christ's teaching will never let us down, while worldly wisdom always will. Christ Himself said that this sort of wisdom was like a house with nothing but sand as its foundation, while His own was like a building with solid rock as its foundation." 

Pope Saint Gregory the Great

"When we attend to the needs of those in want, we give them what is theirs, not ours. More than performing works of mercy, we are paying a debt of justice."

(From Requila Pastoralis)
