Hi Shin.  Thanks!  I've been so busy.  Also began attending a nearby Byzantine church and learning about them. 
There's just not enough time in the day sometimes.   Smiley

It must be splendid to attend a Byzantine parish. Cheesy

I remember fondly a visit I had to one. Truly beautiful!

Beautiful cathedral, beautiful prayers.  The divine liturgy is so much more sacred and supernatural than the ordinary form Roman Mass.  Been missing the quiet prayer of Latin Mass sometimes, so going there tomorrow.    World needs serious prayer right now eh?

Truly, what more could be said?

I am very thankful whenever I encounter those who truly pray.

Well, those aren't actually Mother Teresa's originally I've been told, but from a little plaque hung in one of her orphanages, and thence it became attributed to her, though actually more originally at the least is from a popular author I do not know much about. There're in fact a lot of quotes falsely attributed to her I've read, there's some information about that out there if one looks.

Thanks for the info.
I had no reason to doubt that it was original. As it appears among a long list of her quotes.

Another one from St. Leonard of Port Maurice:

"Sinners, the advice I want to give you will no doubt seem strange to you; but if you understand it well, it is, on the contrary, inspired by tender compassion toward you. I implore you on my knees, by the blood of Christ and by the Heart of Mary, change your life, come back to the road that leads to heaven, and do all you can to belong to the little number of those who are saved. If, instead of this, you want to continue walking on the road that leads to hell, at least find a way to erase your baptism. Woe to you if you take the Holy Name of Jesus Christ and the sacred character of the Christian engraved upon your soul into hell! Your chastisement will be all the greater. So do what I advise you to do: if you do not want to convert, go this very day and ask your pastor to erase your name from the baptismal register, so that there may not remain any remembrance of your ever having been a Christian; implore your Guardian Angel to erase from his book of graces the inspirations and aids he has given you on orders from God, for woe to you if he recalls them! Tell Our Lord to take back His faith, His baptism, His sacraments."

This reminds me of the perhaps too often forgotten baptismal promises.

I like the days when Saints called a spade a spade.  Act of God Tell it like it is. Today we are concerned about being 'politically correct' all the time.

I agree! I love the simplicity of God! No ambiguous words, the simple truth!

One can make a point of saying things the way the holy scriptures say them, even though they're quite socially forbidden by many. The more the words of holy scripture are socially forbidden the worse it is for Christians to practice the faith outside of the catacombs.

The people don't want to hear they're sinners! That's the truth!

Earlier odhiambo, you asked me about mentionables.

I'm thinking on it! I don't know that it's quite the same thing, on the other hand it's certainly not something to speak of unless needed normally, no?

Hmm! I need more thought on the principles behind it all! Thank you odhiambo!

'As a searching investigator of the integrity of your own conduct, submit your life to a daily examination. Consider carefully what progress you have made or what ground you have lost . . . Strive to know yourself . . . Place all your faults before your eyes. Come face to face with yourself, as though you were another person, and then weep for your faults.'

'All that we do receives its value from our conformity to the will of God; for instance, if I take recreation because it is the will of God, I merit more than if I suffered death without having that intention. Keep well in your mind this thought, and remember it in all your actions, in imitation of the carpenter, who passes all the boards he uses under the plane. It is thus you will do all with perfection.'

'"Like a tree planted by streams of water," [Ps. 1:3] the soul is irrigated by the Holy Scriptures and acquires vigour, produces tasty fruit, namely, true faith, and is beautified with a thousand green leaves, namely, actions that please God.'

'The soul has followed Moses and the cloud, both of these serving as guides for those who would advance in virtue; Moses here represents the commandments of the Law; and the cloud that leads the way, its spiritual meaning.

The soul has been purified by crossing the Sea; it has removed from itself and destroyed the enemy army. It has tasted of the waters of Marah, that is, of life deprived of all sinful pleasure; and this at first had seemed bitter and unpleasant to the taste but offered a sensation of sweetness to those who accepted the wood. Next it enjoyed the beauty of the palm trees of the gospel and the springs; it filled itself with the living water, that is, the rock. It took within itself the bread of heaven. It overwhelmed the foreign host - a victory due to the extended arms of the Lawgiver, which thus foreshadowed the mystery of the Cross.

Only then can the soul go on to the contemplation of transcendent Being.'

St. Gregory of Nyssa
