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.
Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati
"In order to be Christian, our lives must be a continual renunciation and sacrifice. However, we know that the difficulties of this world are nothing compared to the eternal happiness that awaits us, where there will be no limit to our joy, no end to our happiness, and we shall enjoy unimaginable peace. And so, young people, learn from our Lord Jesus Christ the meaning of sacrifice."
(From Pier Giorgio Frassati: A Hero for Our Times)
Saint Peter Claver
"To love God as He ought to be loved, we must be detached from all temporal love. We must love nothing but Him, or if we love anything else, we must love it only for His sake."
(From The Catholic Church the Teacher of Mankind)
Blessed Dina Bélanger
"I asked Him one day, not to let me be deceived by the devil. He explained how I could always recognize the difference between His Divine Voice and that of the tempter who so loves to play the role of imitator and deceiver. The Savior makes Himself heard only in hours of deep recollection, peace and silence. His Voice is soft, so soft that in the soul all must be hushed,' it is a melodious voice, while that of the devil is noisy, abrupt and discordant, and his words are uttered in the midst of agitation and tumult."
(From Visionaries, Mystics and Stigmatists Down Through The Ages)
