I am going to have to think up some harder riddles!  irishwisdom

Right, meanwhile there is this:
What is green as grass but grass it's not,
Then white as snow but snow it's not,
Then red as blood but blood it's not,
Finally black as coal but coal it's not?
I cannot remember where it came from. It is in my e-mail. I hope it is not another of the old ones someone had already posted on this Forum  Grin

I think about what this passage refers to quite often.  If I have it right, it is saying  that we have a bigger responsibility to avoid sin and keep returning to God and are in more danger of damnation  from sin because we have been taught to know better.  (?).  Does that sound right?

I remember when I was baptized and confirmed,, after being cradled in RCIA as a catechumen, I felt for the first time such a sense of responsibility.   

I know that we are more culpable than others when we sin, as we should know better.  God bless you!

'Even if the whole universe holds communion with the Patriarch, I will not communicate with him. For I know from the writings of the holy Apostle Paul: the Holy Spirit declares that even angels would be anathema (Galatians 1:8) if they should begin to preach another Gospel, introducing some new teaching.'

'No emperor was able to persuade the Fathers who speak of God to be reconciled with the heretics of their times by means of equivocal expressions. Instead they employed clear and authoritative expressions, and ones that corresponded to the teaching that was being inquired into, saying plainly that it is the mark of priests to make an inquiry and to define on the subject of the saving teachings of the Catholic Church.'

The Practice of The Presence of God: The Best Rule of Holy Life; Being the Conversations and Letters of Brother Lawrence.

Fourth Conversation:

In our conversation with God, we should also engage in praising, adoring, and loving Him incessantly for His infinite goodness and perfection. Without being discouraged on account of our sins, we should pray for His grace with a perfect confidence, as relying upon the infinite merits of our Lord. Brother Lawrence said that God never failed offering us his grace at each action.  It never failed  except when Brother Lawrence's thoughts had wandered from a sense of God's presence or he forgot to ask His assistance.  He said that God always gave us light in our doubts when we had no other design but to please him.

To be continued.

Here a riddle:

Q: What occurs once in a minute, twice in a moment and never in one thousand years?


I knew it straight away Shin, so we must have come across it earlier. It is the letter "m" Grin

O Sacred Heart of Jesus
I place my trust in Thee!

Glory be to the Father,
 and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit.
 As it was in the beginning,
is now, and will be forever!
