Yes they are beautiful and thought provoking. Every now and then I go searching and come across a little nugget and can't wait to share it here. I always wonder though mmm has somebody already posted it here, then I figure it's so sublime why not post it again.

If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.

Prayer that is pure and directed to God by a faithful heart arises like incense from a holy altar. No fragrance is more pleasing to the Lord.
Let it rise from all who believe.
St. Augustine

And don't we have a fine quote of the day thread over here Brigid!!

'We cannot be saved without a struggle, for this life is a continual warfare. But be of good courage, do not be disheartened or troubled about your faults, but always try to draw from them a love of abjection, which must never for a moment be absent from your heart.'

This is an excellent idea and quote! This quote makes me think of Revelations about the incense rising from the Saints prayers.

Yes here it is!

"And another Angel came, and stood before the altar, having a golden censer: and there were given to him many incenses, that he should give of the prayers of all saints upon the altar of gold, which is before the throne of God. And the smoke of the incenses of the prayers of the saints ascended from the hand of the Angel before God."

Apocalypse 8:3-4

A golden censor! A golden altar! This is how important the prayers are, delivered to God by the hands of an angel! Cheesy

I love the smell of good incenses in the church! Cheesy

The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted.

Wasn't it Mother Teresa that said that in the US the biggest spiritual poverty that we had was feeling alone and unwanted.

Lord Jesus Christ, pierce my soul with Your love so that I may always long for You alone, who are the bread of angels and the fulfillment of the soul's deepest desires. May my heart always hunger for You, so that my soul may be filled with the sweetness of Your presence.

A good prayer life is the foundation of everything!

When it's lacking one way or another it has to be happily gained!  Cheesy

Virtuous living, and prayerful living!

It is not enough for me that God has given me grace once, but He must give it always. I ask, that I may receive; and when I have received, I ask again. I am am covetous of receiving God's bounty. He is never slow in giving, nor am I ever weary of receiving. The more I drink, the more thirsty I become.
St. Jerome
