Proud is many a man who looks down on his neighbor because the wool of his gown is finer! Yet as fine as it is, a poor sheep wore it upon her back before it came upon his back, and all the while she wore it, she was after all still only a sheep. And why should he now think himself better than she was simply by having that wool-----wool that, even though it is now his, is still not so truly his as it was truly hers?  Smiley

The bread you store up belongs to the hungry; the cloak that lies in your chest belongs to the naked; the gold you have hidden in the ground belongs to the poor.

St. John of the Cross

I was reading how the little children of Fatima used every trial that came their way as an offering to console the Herats of Jesus and Mary and plead mercy on poor sinners.

I need to keep this in mind and stop complaining.  Embarrassed

St. Basil the Great

I thought that when God created us, He gave each one of us a Guardian Angel. From the quote, it seems that only Believers  have Guardian Angels. Is that the case?

No, I do believe it is everyone, I think he is simply saying it non-exclusively.

It's great to meditate on a quote and work at understanding it! Cheesy

I think St. Thalassios' quote is one of those for a good deal of thought.

It makes me think of the difference in thought itself, when thought itself is virtuous, or not. And something I heard of once called the 'principle of the integral good', which is "good is from an integral cause, evil from any defect whatsoever."

I think to truly understand this quote you have to experience it in the end. But it's helpful guidance too.

God help us on the journey!

When tempted, invoke your Angel. he is more eager to help you than you are to be helped! Ignore the devil and do not be afraid of him: He trembles and flees at the sight of your Guardian Angel.
