This is a prayer instead of a quote:

St. Dominic


Beloved Father Dominic, you followed in the footsteps of the poor Christ as a humble "watchdog of the Lord" preaching by day and praying by night.  Like Jesus, you converted sinners, healed the sick and raised the dead to life.  To teach sound doctrine you founded an order of preachers and doctors.  To exemplify heroic charity and self-sacrifice you raided up an army of martyrs.  To perpetuate prayer in the Church you raised up a legion of cloistered nuns.  Gentle Father, obtain for me the grace to live and die a loyal, practicing Catholic and grant me the favor I now ask
(name petition).
 Good Father Dominic, help me!

'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.'

'Pray with great confidence, with confidence based upon the goodness and infinite generosity of God and upon the promises of Jesus Christ. God is a spring of living water which flows unceasingly into the hearts of those who pray.'

St. Louis Marie de Montfort

I have a question for folks.

What sort of confidence is good confidence and what sort is presumption?

Confidence based upon the goodness and infinite generosity of God and the promises of Jesus Christ is good confidence.  Confidence not based on these things but on what we are unworthy of or on what is not due to us is presumption.

You are very welcome, Shin!  If we look up the word presumption, we might even come up with a more helpful answer than the one I gave you.  God bless you!

               In The Book of Sirach, Chapter 4 Verse 15 states:     
               He who obeys her judges nations;   
               he who hearkens to her dwells in her inmost chambers.     
 
               The her refers to Wisdom.

'I began gradually to like the good and holy conversation of this nun. How well she used to speak of God! for she was a person of great discretion and sanctity. I listened to her with delight. I think there never was a time when I was not glad to listen to her. She began by telling me how she came to be a nun through the mere reading of the words of the Gospel "Many are called, and few are chosen." She would speak of the reward which our Lord gives to those who forsake all things for His sake. This good companionship began to root out the habits which bad companionship had formed, and to bring my thoughts back to the desire of eternal things, as well as to banish in some measure the great dislike I had to be a nun, which had been very great; and if I saw any one weep in prayer, or devout in any other way, I envied her very much; for my heart was now so hard, that I could not shed a tear, even if I read the Passion through. This was a grief to me.'

                In The Book of Sirach, Chapter 42 Verse 21 states:     
                Perennial is his almighty wisdom;     
                he is from all eternity one and the same,     
                with nothing added, nothing taken away;   
                no need of a counselor for him!
