Pondering Tidbits of Truth - February 13, 2020
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.
Mother Mary Francis
“When great masterpieces of art are restored, layers and layers of the overlay are removed before the real panting is found. So, it is with our sins. We ask God to take off one coat after another of sin and pretense until His real image is visible again.”
(From A Time of Renewal)
Venerable Fulton J. Sheen
“God solicits each of us by a dialogue no other soul can hear. His action on the soul is always for us alone. He sends no circular letters, uses no party lines. He calls His sheep by name; He leaves the ninety-nine that are safe to find the one that is lost. Once the soul becomes conscious of the Divine Presence it whispers to itself: This is a message sent to me and to no one else.”
(From Lift Up Your Heart)
Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich
"Every pious desire, every good thought, every charitable work inspired by the love of Jesus, contributes to the perfection of the whole body of the faithful. A person who does nothing more than lovingly pray to God for his brethren, participates in the great work of saving souls."
(From The Life and Revelations of Anne Catherine Emmerich: Book 2)
