Yes  odhiambo, One of my favorite books in the bible is James 3: 1-11
"The tongue is a fire"  "no human being can tame the tongue, a restless evil, full of deadly poison"
May the Lord protect us from the evils of the tongue.
May He give us the grace to govern out tongues  crucifix

It is like employing a small tool on big constructions, if we use human wisdom in the hunt for knowledge of reality.

Our Lord needs from us neither great deeds nor profound thoughts. Neither intelligence nor talents. He cherishes simplicity.

'In beautiful things St. Francis saw Beauty itself, and through His vestiges imprinted on creation he followed his Beloved everywhere, making from all things a ladder by which he could climb up and embrace Him who is utterly desirable.'

We must meditate before, during and after everything we do. The prophet says: "I will pray, and then I will understand." This is the way we can easily overcome the countless difficulties we have to face day after day, which after all, are part of our work. In meditation we find the strength to bring Christ to birth in ourselves and in others.
St. Charles Borromeo

I like this
I strongly suspect that if we saw all the difference even the tiniest of our prayers to God make, and all the people those little prayers were destined to affect, and all the consequences of those effects down through the centuries, we would be so paralyzed with awe at the power of prayer that we would be unable to get up off our knees for the rest of our lives.

This is indeed how it is supposed to be with us Christians. It is a sure way of ensuring that we live  our lives according to the Will of God

I can't stop praying for poor sinners who are on the road to hell. If they come to die in that state, they will be lost for all eternity. What a pity! We have to pray for sinners! Praying for sinners is the most beautiful and useful of prayers because the just are on the way to heaven, the souls of purgatory are sure to enter there, but the poor sinners will be lost forever. All devotions are good but there is no better one than such prayer for sinners.

It's a very moving quote isn't it George?

It reminds me of one of St. Anthony Mary Claret's.
