What do they not see, who see Him Who sees all things?

Pope St. Gregory the Great


The quote is in connection with COMMUNION OF SAINTS. I wonder what Pope Saint Gregory the Great meant by it.

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.

"Give generously to anyone who faithfully obeys God. If you are stingy in giving to the poor, God will be stingy in giving to You"

Tobit 4: 7
That was Tobit's advice to his son Tobias.

Yes we must be generous. . . !  Cheesy

It's disturbing though to see how "generous" people are to support evil organizations and causes, rather than those which are truly good.

That is so true Shin, only to them, they do not consider those organisations evil. It is amazing how different people are.

'Now the food of the passions, as we have already stated many times, consists of sense-impressions. They nourish the passions by attacking the soul with a succession of mental fantasies or idols. This is why Moses put screens of latticework round the altar in the tabernacle (cf. Exod. 27:4), signifying that if we wish to keep our mind pure like a tabernacle we should do the same. Just as the lattices round the altar prevented anything unclean from entering, so we should weave a mental barrier against the senses by reflecting on the terrors of the coming judgment, and so bar the entry to unclean impressions. Ahaziah became ill because he fell from a lattice-window (cf. 2 Kgs. 1:2); and to fall from a lattice-window means to succumb to sensual pleasure because, when tempted, we did not reflect seriously about the future retribution. And what can be worse than this kind of illness?'

'Catch us the little foxes that destroy the vines: for our vineyard hath flourished.'

Canticle of Canticles 2:15

Any thoughts on what the foxes symbolize or mean folks?
