How are you doing today, odhiambo?  Grin

I am well Shin.
After work today I go to my parish for a bible study group. First day today. We had started it last year I think but it came to naught and the study was terminated. Hope this time it will continue. crucifix

Dear All,

I am Joan123 and I am new to this forum.  I would like to share a
St. Anthony Mary Claret quote with you.  It is very possible that
he led me to this forum, because it was through a web search
on St. Anselm's Seven Degrees of Humility that I found the Saints' Works group.

"It is only by hammer blows that God manages
to humble us, no matter how good our native disposition"

Welcome Joan!

I hope and pray you have a wonderful time here. It really is great for one's prayer life to have the prayers and quotes of the saints for food for thought and meditation, and then to hear each other's thoughts on them.

I am glad to see you! Welcome!

I think that, we are so set in our ways, it is so easy to get caught up in the same old routines -- even though we know we should do better -- we need to do better. How else can we be shaken out of our complacency but by the intervention of God, in ways that are not pleasant, but which stir us into action again!

I know well I am the type that is too often easily set in my ways, and hard to stir up. God help me! God help me!

May the good Lord and the prayers of the saints help us all to change our lives!  Cheesy

May St. Anthony and St. Anselm please pray for us before God.

'Is not it with justice, then, that He turns away from us and chastises us, since in everything He is offering us Himself, and we are resisting Him? This is clear to all. "For," He says, "if you wish  to adorn yourself you have My adornment, or to arm yourself you have My arms, or to dress yourself you have My clothing, or to eat you have My table, or to walk you have My road, or to inherit you have My inheritance, or to go into your own country you have that city of which I am the Builder and the Architect, or to build a house you have My tents. I do not demand of you a reward for the things which I give, but I owe reward to you besides for that reward if you are willing to make use of all that is Mine." What could equal this munificence?'

Shin, hi!
There was either a comment you made or a quotation you posted either on this thread or on the Saints's thread.
I have wanted to refer to it this past few days but cannot find it.
It was about bodily functions and not calling a spade a spade, not your words of course, that is me, how I understood it. Could you post it again please. I want to use it to support my argument at another forum.
Thanks.

Perhaps it was from the modesty section?

'It is never appropriate to speak about the parts of the body that must always be kept hidden and about certain bodily necessities to which nature has subjected all of us or even to name them. If sometimes you cannot avoid this in the case of a sick person or someone who is indisposed, do so in such a courteous manner that the terms you use cannot offend against decorum.'

The link has further quotes along that theme. It seems that few people understand this today.

Though I do not quite understand how people do not understand.  Huh?

Haha!
Perhaps it is because it is not "given unto them to understand" Grin

should the word "abortion" be included in the above category of unmentionables?

 In the difficulties which are placed before me, why should I not act like a donkey? When one speaks ill of him — the donkey says nothing. When he is mistreated — he says nothing. When he is forgotten — he says nothing. When no food is given him — he says nothing. When he is made to advance — he says nothing. When he is despised — he says nothing. When he is overburdened — he says nothing... The true servant of God must do likewise, and say with David: Before You I have become like a beast of burden.

'When I consider the blindness of those who, for the sake of things so vile and little, allow themselves to be stupidly led away into the abyss of such horrible and infinite woe, all that is within me is moved by a great compassion. In this connection I recall a possessed person who was forced by a religious to declare who he was: he cried out with great force: "I am that wretch who is deprived of love." He said this with a voice so piteous and penetrating that inwardly I was filled with pity, especially when I was hearing those words, Deprived of love.'

Beautiful quote, though.  Definitely reinforces the importance of turning the other cheek.
