The only Christian ending to a dialogue of no good purpose?  crucifix

Thanks be to Our Lord God for such Christianity!

'If we are not now saints, it is a great misfortune for us: therefore we must be so. As long as we have no love in our hearts, we shall never be Saints.'

'If you say, "Show me your God," I will say to you, "Show me what kind of person you are, and I will show you my God." Show me then whether the eyes of your mind can see, and the ears of your heart hear.

It is like this. Those who can see with the eyes of their bodies are aware of what is happening in this life on earth. They get to know things that are different from each other. They distinguish light and darkness, black and white, ugliness and beauty, elegance and inelegance, proportion and lack of proportion, excess and defect. The same is true of the sounds we hear: high or low or pleasant. So it is with the ears of our heart and the eyes of our mind in their capacity to hear or see God.

God is seen by those who have the capacity to see him, provided that they keep the eyes of their mind open. All have eyes, but some have eyes that are shrouded in darkness, unable to see the light of the sun. Because the blind cannot see it, it does not follow that the sun does not shine. The blind must trace the cause back to themselves and their eyes. In the same way, you have eyes in your mind that are shrouded in darkness because of your sins and evil deeds.

A person's soul should be clean, like a mirror reflecting light. If there is rust on the mirror his face cannot be seen in it. In the same way, no one who has sin within him can see God.'

" A pure soul is like a fine pearl. As long as it is hidden in the shell, at the bottom of the sea,
no one thinks of admiring it.
But if you bring it into the sunshine, this pearl will shine and attract all eyes.
Thus the pure soul, which is hidden from the eyes of the world,
will one day shine before the angels in the sunshine of eternity."
Saint John Marie Vianney

God demands great purity of certain souls, and so He gives them a deeper knowledge of their own misery.
Illuminated by light from on high, the soul can better know what pleases God and what does not.

We need to find God,
 and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness.
 God is the friend of silence.
 See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence;
see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...
We need silence to be able to touch souls.

How true! If the person's heart is hardened and one rebukes him he may persist in sin just to be defiant. Better to pray for such a soul. crucifix

I also think that if it's necessary to rebuke your neighbor you had better pray especially much beforehand, during, and throughout the process.

He who serves God willingly is heard;
his petition reaches the heavens.
The prayer of the lowly pierces the clouds;
it does not rest till it reaches it's goal,
nor will it withdraw till the Most High responds,
judges justly and affirms the right.
