We should strive to keep our hearts open to the sufferings and wretchedness of other people, and pray continually that God may grant us that spirit of compassion which is truly the Spirit of God.

Isn't it wonderful to read the quotes of the saints? The practice of copying them down from books is a splendid one for spiritual learning! I am very thankful when folks share them here.

Yes, this forum has taught me that; I am ever so grateful to you for inviting me over Shin. You were right when you told me I did not know what I was missing. It was that which decided me. Grin


I am grateful you are here too!

I can only pray that more people realize how learning about the saints is so priceless.  crucifix

On a lighter note.

Hearing nun's confessions is like being stoned to death with popcorn.
Venerable Fulton j. Sheen

It often happens that I wake at night, begin to think about a serious problem and decide I must tell the Pope about it. Then I wake up completely and remember - I am the Pope.

Why did Saint Jerome make this remark?  I wonder. Marriage, a Sacrament, should surely be entered into with much , much more than a desire to avoid sleeping alone at night?
I wonder why he said that. Anyone?

It is curious, perhaps it's meant to be humorous.

The state of marriage is one that requires more virtue and constancy than any other. It is a perpetual exercise in mortification.

I think it is just a modest way of saying that the single life is preferred over marriage , but if one cannot stay pure/chaste  being single, then marriage is a better proposition.  Undecided My thought.

I am not too sure about that statement Patricia;  that "the single life is preferred over marriage". I think God calls each one of us to a life He sees suits us best. After all He did create  man and told him in Genesis 1:28 to  "...Be fruitful and multiply..." Smiley
If we choose not to marry because we want to dedicate ourselves to God, that is wonderful, but does it make it superior to marriage? hmm  Undecided

Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of working, but it is the same God that inspires them all in every one. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.
1 cor. 12: 4-6

For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.
1 Cor. 12: 12

Humble yourself the more, the greater you are, and you will find favor with God.
For great is the power of God; by the humble he is glorified.
What is too sublime for you, seek not, into things beyond your strength search not.
What is committed to you, attend to; for what is hidden is not your concern.
With what is too much for you meddle not, when shown things beyond human understanding.
Their own opinion has misled many, and false reasoning unbalanced their judgment
Where the pupil of the eye is missing, there is no light,
and where there is no knowledge, there is no wisdom.
Sirach 3:18-24

It is one of the glories of scripture that it can embrace many meanings in a single passage.
St. Thomas Aquinas
