'Unless various successive spiritual contemplations also occupy the intellect, the practice of virtues by itself cannot free it so entirely from passions that it is able to pray undistractedly. Practice of the virtues frees the intellect only from dissipation and hatred; spiritual contemplation releases it also from forgetfulness and ignorance. In this way the intellect can pray as it should.'

We must imitate the forbearance of God. Oh, how great is God's forbearance! He endures patiently the temples of the profane men who outrage His majesty; He endures idols and sacrilegious ceremonies; He makes the sun to shine on the evil and upon the good, and His rain descend upon the just and upon the unjust; He makes the elements serve all men alike, the impious as well as the good; the winds blow, the springs burst forth, the harvests swell with waving corn, the grapes ripen, the trees cover themselves with fruit, the forests put on thick foliage, the meadows adorn themselves with the enamel of flowers. God delays vengeance, and patiently waits, that man may correct himself and return to his Savior. Such is the forbearance of the Eternal Father, and similar to it was that of the Son, for all the actions of Jesus Christ were characterized by patience and by that divine evenness of soul of which nothing could disturb the tranquility.

Thank you George, I always appreciate a new quote (for me), from an old saint.


'Crocodiles and bees and stones and serpents are worshipped, and God alone on earth either is not worshipped or His worship does not exist with impunity.'

'. . . and what does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God?'

Micah 6:8

'Be a vase, which thou fillest at the source and at the source dost drink from.

Although thou hadst drawn thy love from God, who is the Source of living water, didst thou not drink it continually in Him thy vase would remain empty.'

'Contrition, Peter, manifests itself in many forms of spiritual beauty. For this reason, Jeremiah says, "For these things I weep, mine eye runneth down with water." However, there are two essential kinds of contrition.  When the soul, thirsting, seeks God, at the outset it feels contrition out of fear, but afterwards out of desire.'

The womb of our Immaculate Mother Mary is wholly untouched, not dug or sown, from heaven's dew alone it brings forth a Savior, and provides mortal men with the bread of angels and the food for eternal life.

The prosecutor wanted to pressure St thomas More to sign in agreement to Henry VIII's supremacy of the church in England. "I will threaten you with justice," he said. Thomas More's reply was "If it is justice them I am not threatened.

If it is justice. . .

How many people know what justice is, in fact, and love it as a virtue?

On the contrary they consider punishment a sin.


'Do justice, God sees you.'
