'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.

'Truly it is a blessed thing to love on earth as we hope to love in Heaven, and to begin that friendship here which is to endure for ever there. I am not now speaking of simple charity, a love due to all mankind, but of that spiritual friendship which binds souls together, leading them to share devotions and spiritual interests, so as to have but one mind between them. . . There are two sayings in Holy Scripture on which all Christian friendship should be built: - that of the Wise Man, "Whoso feareth the Lord shall direct his friendship aright;" and that of St. James, "The friendship of the world is enmity with God."'

St. Francis de Sales

'When we go into the garden, it is not to gather the leaves, but the fruits; so in the sacred garden of prayer we ought not to amuse ourselves with the leaves of sentiment and sensible consolation, but rather reap the fruits of the virtues of Jesus.'

St. Paul of the Cross

I need to think more about how to realize this one.
