To defend his purity, Saint Francis of Assisi rolled in the snow, Saint Benedict threw himself into a thornbush, Saint Bernard plunged into an icy pond...You... what have you done?

That is a good quote George. The Saint could also have added; "  ...and Joseph fled from an immoral woman..."  crucifix

A happy quote!

Odhiambo, you makes me think of St. Bernardine's quote on that subject. Cheesy


'Let us then not be ashamed to confess the Crucified. Be the cross our seal, made with boldness by our fingers on our brow and in everything; over the bread we eat and the cups we drink, in our comings and in goings out; before our sleep, when we lie down and when we awake; when we are traveling, and when we are at rest.'

Odhiambo, here is an excerpt from the autobiography of St. Anthony Mary Claret regarding this incident. He relates an incident where he was saved from drowning by the intercession of Our Lady and then relates the following incident:

Mary also saved me from a worse danger, not unlike that of the chaste patriarch, Joseph.
While I was in Barcelona, I used to visit a fellow townsman of mine from time to time. I never spoke
with anyone else in the house except him. When I arrived there, I would go straight to his room and talk
only with him, but the others in the house always saw me coming and going. I was fairly young then,
and although it's true that I had to buy my own clothes, I liked to dress--I won't say luxuriously--but with
a certain elegance, perhaps too much. Who knows? Maybe the Lord will take me to task for this on
judgment day. One day I went to the house and asked after my friend. The lady of the house, a young
woman, asked me to wait for him, as he was coming back soon. I had waited a little while when I
realized that her intentions were passionate, as her words and gestures made clear. I called out to the
Blessed Virgin and ran out of that house, never to return. I didn't tell anyone about what had happened,
for fear of ruining the lady's reputation.
73. God dealt me all these blows to wake me up and help me escape from the dangers of the
world.

"You carry your snare everywhere and spread your nets in all places. You allege that you never invited others to sin. You did not indeed, by your words, but you have done so by your dress and your deportment....When you have made another sin in his heart, how can you be innocent? Tell me, whom does this world condemn? Whom do judges punish? Those who drink poison or those who prepare it and administer the fatal potion? You have prepared the abominable cup, you have given the death dealing drink, and you are more criminal than are those who poison the body; you murder not the body but the soul. And it is not to enemies you do this,nor are you urged on by any imaginary necessity, nor provoked by injury, but out of foolish vanity and pride."
St. John Chrysostom

Thanks again Patricia.  thumbs up It is beautiful reading. How I wish the whole world was peopled with such as him, both men and women; what a beautiful world that would be!  Smiley

Prayer is the place of refuge for every worry, a foundation for cheerfulness, a source of constant happiness, a protection against sadness.

 I don't know if I've posted this before, but I love this quote

Listen to the sermon preached to you by the flowers, the trees, the shrubs, the sky, and the whole world. Notice how they preach to you a sermon full of love, of praise of God, and how they invite you to glorify the sublimity of that sovereign artist who has given them being.

For me prayer is a surge of the heart, it is a simple look towards heaven, it is a cry of recognition and love, embracing both trial and joy.
