I will go peaceably and firmly to the Catholic Church: for if faith is so important to our salvation,
I will seek it where true faith first began, seek it among those who received it from God Himself.

I love this quote. One of my best.

Jesus said to the twelve, "Will you also go away?" Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal Life;
We believe You are the Holy One of God."

'Yesterday, our old St. Francis of Assisi was more poetical than ever, in the midst of his tears and of his bursts of love. Speaking of the soul of man, which ought to aspire to God alone, he cried out, "Does the fish seek the trees and the fields? No; it darts through the water. Does the bird remain on the earth? No; it flies in the air. . . And man, who is created to love God, to possess God, to contain God, what will he do with all the powers that have been given to him for that end?"'

I just wish there was some way to shake this concept in to people!  The absurdity of a person's decision to commit sin is about the same as if a fish were to try to "free itself" by jumping onto a river bed...

I really like this quote. Sometimes free will can be daunting, especially when temptation is involved (Romans 7:13-25). Praise God for our beloved Savior. Being a husband and a father of 4 and a grandfather of 4, there have been many occasions when I've had to explain to them how much I loved them, but, I loved God more and nothing could change that ( so hard to explain), my wife has accepted that, the others have found it challenging.
My grandchildren seem to grasp it better than their parents, there is nothing that can bring greater joy( that I have found) than calling out to God and feeling the warmth of his healing love fill my soul, and yes it is frustrating when you want so bad for those you love to share this incredible gift with you, this grace, and it seems they Can't or won't, so I pray for them, and because I love them so, I"ll never stop.

It's good to read these thoughts on St. Jean Marie and St. Francis!

Thank you, you two!

It makes me think how we can tire of anything, and must tire of anything and everything -- but God. He is the true good, that never ends, for which we were created, wholey.

'The first duty of man ordained and brought forth into this world for that end. . . is to know his creator, and being known, to confess Him, and to resign or give up his life - which is the wonderful and peculiar gift of God, - to the service and worship of the Giver; for what he received by God's free donation, may be employed in true devotion, and what was conferred upon him in the state of wrath and unworthiness, may by an obedient resignation make him precious and beloved.'

'To attain the knowledge of God is impossible for those who are still under the control of their passions. Therefore they cannot attain the salvation they hope for as they have not obtained any knowledge of God.

He who fails to attain this end is clearly subject to the charge of being ignorant of God, and ignorance of God is shown by a man's manner of life.'

Extend your mercy toward others, so that there can be no one in need whom you meet without helping. For what hope is there for us if God should withdraw His mercy from us?

If we show mercy to others, then God will show mercy to us?
