Pondering Tidbits of Truth - November 8, 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. John Vianney

 "Are you there [at Mass] with the same dispositions as Our Lady on Calvary, realizing that you are in the presence of God Himself and are present at the enactment of that very same sacrifice?” 

St. Catherine of Siena 

 "It is not enough for eternal life to sweep the house clean of deadly sin. One must fill it with virtue that is grounded in love, and not merely in fear.”

(From The Dialogue)

 St. Vincent de Paul

 “When once we have placed ourselves totally in the hands of God, we have no cause to fear misfortune; for if any should come to us, He will know how to make it turn to our good by ways which we do not know now, but which, one day, we shall know.” 

(From A Year With the Saints - A Virtue For every Day of the Year)
