"...t is not allowable for anyone to produce another faith, that is, to write or to compose or to consider or to teach others; those who dare to compose another faith, or to support or to teach or to hand on another creed to those who wish to turn to knowledge of the truth, whether from Hellenism or Judaism or indeed from any heresy whatsoever, or to introduce novelty of speech, that is, invention of terms, so as to overturn what has now been defined by us, such persons, if they are bishops or clerics, are deprived of their episcopacy or clerical rank, and if they are monks or layfolk they are excommunicated."

"The declared enemies of God and His Church, heretics and schismatics, must be criticized as much as possible, as long as truth is not denied. It is a work of charity to shout: 'Here is the wolf!' when it enters the flock or anywhere else."

"In the Third Secret [of Fatima] it is foretold, among other things, that the great apostasy in the Church will begin at the top."

"The Church will be punished because the majority of her members, high and low, will become so perverted. The Church will sink deeper and deeper until she will at last seem to be extinguished, and the succession of Peter and the other Apostles to have expired. But, after this, she will be victoriously exalted in the sight of all doubters."
--St. Nicholas of Flue, in Catholic Prophecy, edited by Yves Dupont, p. 30

                 In The Book of Psalms, Psalm 36 Verse 8-9 states:   
                   
                 How precious is your love, O God!   
                 We take refuge in the shadow of your wings.     
                 We feast on the rich food of your house;   
                 from your delightful stream you give us drink.

A beautiful and refreshing verse to hear CyrilSebastian!


'HAVE no emulation toward the malignant: neither envy them that do iniquity.

Because they shall quickly wither as grass: and as the blossoms of herbs they shall soon fall.

Hope in our Lord and do good: and inhabit the land, and thou shalt be fed in the riches thereof.

Be delighted in our Lord: and he will give thee the petitions of thy heart.

Reveal thy way to our Lord, and hope in him: and he will do it.

And he will bring forth thy justice as light: and thy judgment as midday: be subject to our Lord, and pray him.

Psalm 36:1-7

[36 in the traditional numbering, the previous then 35]

              The Letter to the Colossians, Chapter 3 Verse 9-10 states:   
              Stop lying to one another, since you have taken off the old self with its practices     
                and have put on the new self, which is being renewed, for knowledge, in the image of its creator.

'Holy Scripture tells us that whoever gives in to temptation will perish. Never fear temptation: it is useful and necessary to us. I must arm myself with prayer and have complete trust in Our Lord and great mistrust of myself. I must face every trial with profound humility and blind, simple, happy obedience.

Jesus crucified is my model. I must work tirelessly to be like him. I should not longer allow myself to be sad about anything other than offending him or having nothing to suffer for him, for love of him.'

'Let us hasten with joy and trepidation to the noble contest and with no fear of our enemies. They are themselves unseen but they can look at the appearance of our soul. If they are really to see our spirits bowed down by fear, then indeed they will make a harsher sally against us, knowing how much we tremble. Let us courageously arm ourselves against them. No one goes to battle against a plucky fighter.'

'It is characteristic of God and His angels to bring to the soul, when they occupy it, true happiness and spiritual joy; and to drive from it the sadness and trials which the enemy incites in it.'

'He who is not attracted by worldly things cherishes stillness. He who loves nothing merely human loves all men. And he who takes no offence at anyone either on account of their faults, or on account of his own suspicious thoughts, has knowledge of God and of things divine.'

             In The Book of Psalms, Psalm 23, Verse 3-4 state:   
             you restore my strength.     
             You guide me along the right path for the sake of your name.   
             Even when I walk through a dark valley,       
             I fear no harm for you are at my side;       
             Your rod and staff give me courage.
