'After the suggestion comes the pleasure. When a person is not careful to banish the temptation immediately, but stops to reason with it, the thought instantly begins to delight him, and give him pleasure, and thus draws the person on to give his consent to it. As long as the will withholds the consent, the sin is only venial, and not mortal. But if the soul does not then turn to God, and make an effort to resist the pleasure, it will easily go on to give its consent. "Unless," says St. Anselm, "a person repel the pleasure, it passes into consent, and kills the soul."'

St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori



How very important it is to pray in times of temptation.  Immediately we should cry: Jesus!  Mary!  Jesus, have mercy, help me!  Mary intercede for me!

                     I form the light , and create the darkness,     
                     I make the well-being and create woe;

'I the Lord, and there is none other, that form light, and Create darkness, make peace, and Create evil: I the Lord that do all these things.

Isaias 45:7
Original Doaui

'Formans lucem et creans tenebras, faciens pacem et creans malum: ego Dominus faciens omnia haec.'

Vulgate

The weak footnote doesn't really excuse such a weak translation of the passage. This is why we should go to the Vulgate and the original Douai.

Can the original Douai be found online, Shin?  If so, I'd like to read it.  I have the newer Bishop Challoner version.

Yes the true and Original Douai is provided by Saints' Books for free download.

These are the original facsimile PDF files.

We have an ongoing project to provide it as an entire website in searchable text, rather than only as PDFs.  It's taking time and labor, been at it for over a year and a half now. When it is finished, God willing, it will be a searchable parallel Original Douai and Vulgate together. Thus the most literal English translation and the Vulgate to refer to as the source will finally be provided together.

Please pray for the project and the folks who work on it.

Folks who want to have printed hard or softcover versions, can get various versions of it through online-single print services elsewhere.

Nothing is sold through these websites, only donations are accepted.

Very glad to hear folks appreciate the work.

It certainly is a beautiful project. It is very hard, but a time will come when all we need are final proofreaders, God willing. Then it will become available for folks to easily read.

Poor human reason, when it trusts in itself, substitutes the strangest absurdities for the highest divine concepts.

A quote that has much application today amongst those who think of themselves as apologists for the Catholic Faith.

St. John Chrysostom

Reason must be enlightened by faith.  Reason and faith must work together, not one without the other.  Reason on its own without faith to enlighten it leads to rationalism, materialism, and a host of other bad -isms.

'It was necessary for man's salvation that there should be a knowledge revealed by God besides philosophical science built up by human reason. Firstly, indeed, because man is directed to God, as to an end that surpasses the grasp of his reason: "The eye hath not seen, O God, besides Thee, what things Thou hast prepared for them that wait for Thee" (Isaiah 64:4). But the end must first be known by men who are to direct their thoughts and actions to the end. Hence it was necessary for the salvation of man that certain truths which exceed human reason should be made known to him by divine revelation. Even as regards those truths about God which human reason could have discovered, it was necessary that man should be taught by a divine revelation; because the truth about God such as reason could discover, would only be known by a few, and that after a long time, and with the admixture of many errors. Whereas man's whole salvation, which is in God, depends upon the knowledge of this truth. Therefore, in order that the salvation of men might be brought about more fitly and more surely, it was necessary that they should be taught divine truths by divine revelation.'

              The centurion said, "For I too am a person subject to authority, with soldiers subject   
              to me. And I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come here,' and he comes;     
              and to my slave, 'Do this,' and he does it."   
             When Jesus heard this he was amazed at him and, turning, said to the crowd following   
             him, "I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith."
