The Most Sobering Words Ever

“Jesus said:

WIDE IS THE GATE AND BROAD IS THE ROAD THAT LEADS TO DESTRUCTION AND MANY ENTER THROUGH IT; BUT SMALL IS THE GATE AND NARROW THE ROAD THAT LEADS TO LIFE AND FEW THERE ARE THAT FIND IT!”

St. Francis of Paola & St. Bruno

“Be peace loving.  Peace is a precious treasure to be sought with great zeal.  You are well aware that our sins arouse God’s anger.  You must change your life, therefore, so that God in His mercy will pardon you.  What we conceal from men is known to God.  Be converted, then, with a sincere heart.  Live your life that you may receive the blessing of the Lord, then the peace of God Our Father will be with you always.”-St. Francis of Paola

“While the world changes, the CROSS stands firm.”-St. Bruno

St. Camillus & Edith Stein- Therese Benedicta of the Cross

“Think well; speak well; do well.  These three things, through the mercy of God, will make a man go to Heaven.”-St. Camillus

“By reason of His Immensity, God is present everywhere; but there are two places where He dwells in a particular manner.  One is in the highest Heavens, where He is present by that glory which He communicates to the Blessed; the other is on earth- within the humble soul that loves Him.

In order to be an image of God, (Imago Dei) the spirit must turn to what is eternal, hold it in spirit, keep it in memory and by loving it, embrace it in the will.”-Edith Stein, Ven Therese Benedicta of the Cross, the famous Jewish convert who was murdered at Auschwitz.

St. Anthony and Andrew Kim Taegon

“The life of the body is the soul; the life of the soul is God.”-St. Anthony of Padua

“We have received baptism, entrance into the Church- and the honor of being called Christians.  Yet what good will this do us if we are Christians in name only and not in fact?”-Ven. Andrew Kim Tae-gon

Athanasius & Cyril

“You will not see anyone who is truly striving after their spiritual advancement who is not given to spiritual reading.”-St. Athanasius of Alexandria

“For us Christians, the first virtue of godliness is to honor our parents- to pay back the troubles of those who bore us and to give them whatever comforts we can with all our strength.  For if we repaid them as much as possible, we could still never pay them back for their gift of life.  Then they will enjoy the comfort we provide… and then won’t Our Father in Heaven accept our good intentions and judge us worthy to ‘shine like the sun in the Kingdom of Our Father.”?- Matthew 13.43- St. Cyril of Jerusalem

Wisdom

“Since love completes all, makes all hard things soft and the difficult easy, let us strive to make all our acts proceed from love.” – Ven. Arnold Janssen

“The sacraments, which are the channels by which grace and Divine Life reach our souls have their value only through Jesus’ sacrifice.  If we are today in a state of grace to what do we owe it?  To our baptism; and our baptism- what has merited it’s fruits?  The death of Christ Jesus.  It is the same with the sacrament of penance; we are washed clean in the Blood of the Saviour.  The power of the sacraments is drawn from the Cross; they have efficacy only in continuity with the Holy Passion of Christ.”- Ven. Columba Marmion

Aquinas and Lewis

“To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary.  To one without faith, no explanation is possible.”

-St. Thomas Aquinas

“I think all Christians would agree with me if I said that though Christianity seems at first to be all about morality, all about duties and rules and guilt and virtue, yet it leads you on, out of all that, into something beyond.  One has a glimpse of a country where they do not talk of those things… Every one there is filled full with what we should call goodness as a mirror is filled with light.”

-C.S. Lewis

Stars

The stars shine down on the mountains;

The stars shine down on the sea;

The stars look up to the Mighty God;

The stars look down on me.

The stars shall last for millions of years;

millions of years and a day-

But God and I shall live and love

when the stars have passed away!

-Emerson
