O Priest! Take care lest what was said to Christ on the cross be said to you: "He saved others, himself he cannot save!"

Oh my God! Would I might prevent all from offending Thee! Rather would I could make Thee known, loved and served by all creatures! This is the sole object of my desire, for all things else are unworthy of attention.

Yes, we have to be careful that we live what we speak of. We have to constantly work with hope to live the life of the saints, the life of Christ.

'This seems a cheerful world, Donatus, when I view it from this fair garden. But if I climbed some great mountain and looked out over the wide land, you know well what I would see. Brigands on the high roads, pirates on the seas, men murdered in the amphitheaters to please the applauding crowds, and under all roofs misery and selfishness. It is really a bad world. And yet in the midst of it, I have found a quiet and holy people. They have discovered a joy which is a thousand times better than any pleasure of this sinful life. They are despised and persecuted, but they care not. They have overcome the world. These people, Donatus, are the Christians, and I have become one of them.'

Well, there are many in name, but in their ignorance, scarcely more than. So many.. and so few who are true..

God help us to become true Christians! God help people everywhere..

I think that's a quote that needs to be more in context. One should have to look it up.

"Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a pharisee and the other a tax collector. the Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week, I give tithes of all that I get. But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, 'God be merciful to me a sinner!'

Believing that only God can read a heart, who can judge.

I must always remember never to judge. I know of at least two women who are "staunch" catholics, if I may use that expression. Both are second wives and I am afraid I have wondered how can that come about? A catholic woman? a second wife?
May the Lord forgive me if in so wondering, I have judged.

It is difficult, to know the laws of the church, and the laws of the heart, yet not fall victim to scrupulosity. One of beauties of scripture is it's depth, when I read this I see the Pharasee's mistake is in his comparing, bringing in a third party, so to speak ( Satan ? ). The tax collector kept it between God and himself. They were both obeying the law, being at temple, praying, but only one was breaking the law of the heart, only God can know our true motivations, only God can judge the heart . I fear we all fall victim to this at times.

Twice a day, or at least once, make your examens. Be careful never to omit them. So live as to make more account of your own good conscience than you do of those of others;
for he who is not good in regard to himself, how can he be good in regard to others.
