This is a nice little site!  

It has a very friendly feel to it, and the primary focus in growing in holiness...which is very edifying!  

Thanks for inviting me, Shin!  :-)

Peace be with you, Shin.

I would like to Thank you for this website and the books and resources on here. They are of an Excellent Spiritual nature and much appreciated. You are a very enlightened person. I'll be sending 2 attachments to you shortly through email to administrator@saintsquotes.net that will add to your collection of Spiritual Knowledge which I hope you find Spiritually Satisfying. Thank you. Please keep up the Good Work.


I have found a few errors on the book links. Here they are:


St. Thomas Aquinas - The Summa Contra Gentiles - Of God and His Creatures
'If then the final happiness of man does not consist in those exterior advantages which are called goods of fortune, nor in goods of the body, nor in goods of the soul in its sentient part, nor in the intellectual part in respect of the moral virtues, nor in the virtues of the practical intellect, called art and prudence, it remains that the final happiness of man consists in the contemplation of truth. This act alone in man is proper to him, and is in no way shared by any other being in this world. This is sought for its own sake, and is directed to no other end beyond itself.'

Download PDF - Link not working   


St. Peter Julian Eymard - Month of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament
'If, then, we desire to be the children of this loving Mother, we must clothe our selves with her modesty. Let us make it the ordinary subject of our meditation, for it is the heritage left us by Mary. Let her modesty be the rule of our virtues. Let her simplicity, which forgets itself to see only God, which inclines to duty rather than to pleasure, to God rather than to His consolation, to love for love, be our portion, the aim of our efforts, and the seal of our life.'

Download PDF -  Wrong link, link is to St. Peter Julian Eymard - Divine Eucharist


Fr. Francis Hunolt - Sermons - Adapted to All Sundays - The Different States in Life - II
'And he adds: "They hold their meetings before the rising sun, and sing hymns to Christ and God." How our Mother, the holy Catholic Church, endeavors to encourage us her children to this practice! All the hymns that priests recite in the divine Office are full of invitations of this kind: "Now that the day has dawned, let us adore God and pray to Him." "Away with sleep; let us rise quickly and seek God in the night, as the Prophet says," "Come, Holy Ghost, and enlighten our senses with Thy light, that our first words may be spoken to Thee, and our mouths may be opened in Thy praise." "To Thee, God, our voices shall first sing, that all our works may begin with Thee." And many more of the same kind; all loving efforts that the Catholic Church makes to exhort and encourage her children to consecrate the first part of the day to prayer and the praises of God. So that, my clear Christians, we must acknowledge and confess that according to the law of justice, to the end of our creation, to the very instinct of nature itself, to the command and will of God, to the example of Jesus Christ and of all true servants of God, to the exhortations of the holy Fathers and to the invitation of our Mother, the holy Catholic Church, we are bound to spend the best and most excellent part of the day, the early morning, in praising God, who is infinitely worthy of all praise and honor.'

Download PDF    - Wrong link, Link is for Fr. Francis Hunolt - Sermons - Adapted to All Sundays - The Different States in Life

Correct link at the end:

God bless you.

Thank you for the help and welcome to the forums Gabriel Marie Josef Anton!   cherubim Seraphim cherubim

I pray and hope you have a fine time here!

Things are a little quiet, but if you stop by regularly and share your daily life's experiences and prayers, you will make friends and find spiritual support through the beautiful writings of the saints!

With patience and virtue life becomes beautiful!

You have my prayers! Thanks be to God for all His gifts for we poor souls in this life and forever!

Peace be with you.

You're Welcome. Thank you for the Warm Welcome. I like quiet so that is not a problem. I will endeavour to drop by as regularly as I can to keep you company. I am the quiet, contemplative kind of person though but if I find any thoughts of worth I will endeavour to form them onto this forum. Please keep up the Good Work.

God Bless you.

Hello,

I wanted to join this forum because I think that it is a good thing to highly esteem the teachings of the saints as regards faith and morals, especially when the saints are in universal agreement on something. After all, they are the ones who were closest to God in this life and as a result of their closeness would better know His truths and what He requires us to do to save our souls so that we can enjoy Him and the unseen and unheard of joys and beauty in heaven.

I have occasionally lurked this forum and a few other forums and I have always found myself in agreement with Shin when he has posted about immodesty not being appropriate regardless of how few today are obeying God's laws. I saw that Shin posted on this forum that links are not generally permitted because countless websites contain immodest advertisements, and I realized that I am of one mind with Shin, even if out of bad habit I still lurk some forums that sometimes have immodest, or otherwise merely strange and ugly, advertisements that disturb my conscience.

One of my resolutions that I have had for the last several months is to spend more of my leisure time reading about the positive things of the faith - Holy Scripture, Catechisms, and the writings of the Saints - and less time reading the news, whether it be secular or church related. I have made some improvements in this respect, but am still far from perfect. My reasoning for my resolution has been my firm conviction that all of the current evils, whether in the political or church realm, can only be resolved by more people studying and living the faith, and that constant chatter about the evils is idle and fruitless. It is not that I think that a man should never inform himself about the news, but it is a matter of proportion and prioritizing. 

May God bless all the members, and thank you Shin in particular for being an edifying light, standing almost alone amidst the crowd.

 cherubim Welcome to the Saints' Discussion Forums St. Camillus!  cherubim

You have picked a great saint's name there. It's quite an interesting life he lived! I remember enjoying reading about him, he had a rough time of it, what a fellow.

 farmer

It sounds like you're making some great progress separating yourself from the world and developing the habit of loving the virtuous life! We really have to love virtue and be happy with it to be able to separate ourselves as we always seek something or other to find some kind of fulfillment.

It's great to mortify the curiosity and cut out a lot of time wasters. The more I mortify my curiosity the happier I am in the long run, a clean mind is full of happier thoughts and able to meditate on virtuous things without as much chaff and distraction. And if you think a site is going to have any images with problems, but you still have a sufficiently good reason to go -- 'turn images off' before visiting it. There are add on buttons for that for some browsers. It may be clunkier but the safety of our minds is paramount!

In this winter season it's just about the time the seed catalogs all start getting sent out to the gardening folks. That means it's time to plan even if the ground is frozen and snowstorms predicted ahead! I can't garden now.. but I can enjoy the time planning. And I can read about the meanings of plants and their spiritual meanings and medicinal uses to help enjoy my time when I'm not renovating the home. And I can gather quotes for the website and try to review more books to see if they can be included.

I pray you enjoy your time here! It's a little quiet but when folks put in a little effort to find holy quotes to share it's always a happy time reading and nourishes the soul. It's great too sharing a bit about our lives in the Daily Life threads. I hope you stop by those threads too! We could all use more good companions on this journey!  Cheesy

Thank you Shin for the nice welcome. St. Camillus did have an interesting life! I have a book called Saints for Sinners by an Archbishop Goodier which has a chapter about St. Camillus that really moved me when I read it. It is encouraging to know that even people with not the best backgrounds can become great saints. Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto...

I do not know too much about gardening, but I hope that you have a good time planning and preparing.
