From Saints quotes:

'Let us imagine our confusion when we appear before God and understand the reasons why He sent us the crosses we accept so unwillingly. The death of a child will then be seen as its rescue from some great evil had it lived, separation from the woman you love the means of saving you from an unhappy marriage, a severe illness the reason for many years of life afterwards, loss of money the means of saving your soul from eternal loss. So what are we worried about? God is looking after us and yet we are full of anxiety! We trust ourselves to a doctor because we suppose he knows his business. He orders an operation which involves cutting away part of our body and we accept it. We are grateful to him and pay him a large fee because we judge he would not act as he does unless the remedy were necessary, and we must rely on his skill. Yet we are unwilling to treat God in the same way! It looks as if we do not trust His wisdom and are afraid He cannot do His job properly. We allow ourselves to be operated on by a man who may easily make a mistake -- a mistake which may cost us our life -- and protest when God sets to work on us.'

Thank you Shin, this quote brought a tear to my eye. To have such faith is to be hoped and prayed for.

Earthly riches are like the reed. Its roots are sunk in the swamp, and its exterior is fair to behold; but inside it is hollow. If a man leans on such a reed, it will snap off and pierce his soul.

A good quote for me to read today, thank you odhiambo!

How easy it is to be tempted to rely on material things for happiness!

The only true riches are those that make us rich in virtue. Therefore if you want to be rich, beloved, love true riches.
If you aspire to the heights of real honor, strive to reach the kingdom of heaven. If you value rank and renown, hasten to be enrolled in the heavenly court of the angels.

So powerful.  I was about to post a quote, but I think I'll put it off just to allow the profoundness of these words sink in a bit more!  Cheesy

Thank you George!

I need to learn to think about the virtues more and more properly! So as to truly appreciate them for the beautiful works of God they are, and so be better motivated to pursue them in my own life!

Philippians 4:8

One of my favorites.  My D-R NT says ....whatsoever holy, whatsoever lovely.... and whenever this comes to mind I think of the large and beautiful tabernacle in the center of the altar in my Byzantine church.

It's a favorite of mine too!

Yes, it's interesting to see the different meanings each part of this passage can be translated to.  Cheesy

The portion 'modest' I've also seen put as 'honest', and those two meanings are very closely tied together, more than people might think who haven't read about that virtue.

I don't recall when I copy/pasted it (easier Cheesy) but I think I was up pretty late. My time and the forum time, I don't think are exactly the same.

Celebrate the feast of Christmas every day, even every moment in the interior temple of your spirit, remaining like a baby in the bosom of the heavenly Father, where you will be reborn each moment in the Divine Word, Jesus Christ.
