'The nature of water is soft, and the nature of stone is hard; but if a bottle is hung above the stone, allowing the water to fall down drop by drop, it wears away the stone. So it is with the Word of God: it is soft and our heart is hard, but the man who hears the Word of God often opens his heart to the fear of God.'

'And one of those thieves that were hanged, blasphemed him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself, and us. But the other answering, rebuked him, saying, Neither dost thou fear God, where thou art in the same damnation? And we in deed justly, for we receive worthy of our doings: but this man hath done no evil.  And he said to JESUS, Lord, remember me when thou shalt come into thy kingdom. And JESUS said to him, Amen I say to thee: this day thou shalt be with me in paradise. And it was almost the first hour: and there was made darkness upon the whole earth until the ninth hour. And the sun was darkened: and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. And JESUS crying with a loud voice, said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit. And saying this, he gave up the ghost.'

'We are convinced, that this sin [willful ignorance] alone causes the loss of more souls than all the other sins together, because he who is ignorant does not realize the harm he does by his sin, nor the great good he thus forfeits.'

'The human ideal of continence, I mean that which is set forth by Greek philosophers, teaches that one should fight desire and not be subservient to it so as to bring it to practical effect.

But our ideal is not to experience desire at all.'

'Instead of seeking to be the friends of God, sinners wish to be the slaves of Satan, who is a cruel and merciless tyrant to all who submit to his yoke. And if he promises delights, he does it, as St. Cyprian says, not for our welfare, but that we may be the companions of his torments in hell.'

'When in a pure state, the intellect, on receiving the conceptual images of things, is moved to contemplate these things spiritually. But when it is sullied through indolence, while its conceptual images may in general be free from passion, those concerned with people produce in it thoughts that are shameful or wicked.'

'Even whilst sleeping, says Bellarmine, the sight of the cross was present to the heart of Jesus: "Christ had his cross always before his eyes. When he slept, his heart watched; nor was it ever free from the sight of the cross."'

'Now answer me candidly, when you are going to the church to hear Mass, do you bear in mind that you are going to Calvary to be present at the Redeemer's death? If this thought was deep in your soul, would you venture into the holy place with unbecoming gait, or in apparel that is immodest? Had Magdalene come to the foot of the cross on Calvary, bedizened, perfumed, and with a display of finery such as she wore in the time of her sinfulness, what would have been said of her? Now what are we to say of you who go to the holy place dressed out as for some merry-making? What should be said of you if you were to profane that most august sacrifice by unbeseeming conduct, such as nods, salutations, laughter, whisperings, or worse than all, lascivious and sacrilegious glancings? Iniquity is abominable on all occasions and in all places, but the sins that are committed during Mass, and under the shadow of the altar, are sins which call down God's signal maledictions, "Cursed be he who doeth the work of the Lord deceitfully." (Jer. xlviii. 10.)'

'I, Claude de la Colombiere, do from this hour bind myself by vow to fully and perfectly observe the rules of my order; to reject with horror all that men of the world love and thirst after; and to accept and yearn for the things that Christ our Lord loved and chose.'
