Two loves have made two different cities: Self-love hath made a terrestrial city, which rises in contempt of God;
And divine love hath made a celestial one, which rises in contempt of self. The former glories in itself--- the latter in God

It's really a beautiful thought to contemplate the celestial city.

" What does love look like?
It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has the eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men.
That's what love looks like."
St. Augustine

Few souls understand what God would accomplish in them if they were to abandon themselves unreservedly to Him and if they were to allow His grace to mold them accordingly.

This reminds me of Peter sinking after he steped out of the boat... if only we could let go of our doubt completely, imagine what miraculous things God could work through us!

"It is related of St. Arsenius, that a noble lady went to visit him in the desert, to beg of him to recommend her to God. When the saint perceived that his visitor was a woman, he turned away from her, she then said to him: 'Arsenius, since you will neither see or hear me, at least remember me in your prayers.' 'No,' replied the saint, 'but I will beg of God to make me forget you, and never more to think of you.'"

St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori


I think many in today's society would misinterpret St. Arsenius' words to his visitor.  I honestly believe that these are actually words of great love and respect for this lady.  For if St. Arsenius had fallen into sin because of her presence, she would have shared in the responsibility.

I honestly don't believe there is anything impolite about looking away while speaking to somebody of the opposite sex who isn't your spouse.  I don't think that, as Catholics, we should ever feel ashamed about protecting our purity.

I'm not sure about that. If someone could not look me in the eye while talking to me I would think he was rude and wouldn't trust him.   Undecided

I think I would not trust him either. Also, I would be hurt and angry since it would seem to me that I wasn't being respected for what I said.

It was meet that the God of all purity should spring from the greatest purity, from the most pure bosom.

I must remember the rose quote especially. Cheesy

Here's a brief catechesis on virtue, each quote a depth of knowledge!


'Worldly virtues promote human glory, spiritual virtues the glory of God.'

St. Thalassios the Libyan

'To each virtue there is an opposing vice; hence the wicked take vices for virtues.'

St. Thalassios the Libyan

'Let no one think that he has actually become a child of God if he has not yet acquired divine qualities.'

St. Thalassios the Libyan

'For desires for present things cannot be repressed or plucked out unless salutary dispositions have been introduced to replace the harmful ones that we want to cut off.'

St. John Cassian

'Spiritual reading and prayer purify the intellect, while love and self-control purify the soul's passible aspect.'

St. Thalassios the Libyan

'The intellect cannot be transformed by spiritual knowledge unless it first detaches itself from the soul's passible aspect by means of its own virtues.'

St. Thalassios the Libyan

'Every vice leads in the end to forbidden pleasure; and every virtue to spiritual blessing. Each arouses what is akin to it.'

St. Mark the Ascetic

The greater the charity of the Saints in their heavenly home, the more they intercede for those who are still on their journey and the more they can help them by their prayers; the more they are united with God, the more effective those prayers are. This is in accordance with Divine order, which makes higher things react upon lower things, like the brightness of the sun filling the atmosphere.

To suffer and to be happy although suffering, to have ones feet on the earth, to walk on the dirty and rough paths of this earth and yet to be enthroned with Christ at the Fathers right hand, to laugh and cry with the children of this world and ceaselessly to sing the praises of God with the choirs of angels, this is the life of the christian until the morning of eternity breaks forth.
St. Teresa Benedicta (Edith Stein)
