'It is granted to few to recognize the true Church amid the darkness of so many schisms and heresies, and to fewer still so to love the truth which they have seen as to fly to its embrace.'

Just a note, I'm not sure of the origin of that last quote!

A quick search shows it's been attributed to a lot of Teresas.

"For us Christians, the first virtue of godliness is to honor our parents—to pay back the troubles of those who bore us, and to give them whatever comforts we can with all our strength. For if we repaid them as much as possible, we could still never pay them back for their gift of life. Then they will enjoy the comfort we provide, . . . And then won’t our Father in heaven accept our good intentions, and judge us worthy to ‘shine like the sun in the Kingdom of our Father’ (Matthew 13:43)?"

A good quote to remember. I am trying to remember a quote in Holy Scripture that is similar about caring for one's family.

Sorry, I have just noticed your comment.
Let's do away with it if there is uncertainty about its origin, shall we?

As requested then, I shall remove the quote.  flower

For everyone's info -- We have a nice lengthy time out on editing and deletion here, sometimes I think of extending it even longer. And anyone can freely request editorial correction and deletes at any time in the future, no need for concern.

Amen! May God grant us charity!

'If the heart of a man is not lifted up, this is from no defect on the part of him who draws it, who as far as he is concerned never fails, but from an impediment caused by him who is being drawn.'

'The demons, therefore, if they see all Christians, and monks especially, labouring cheerfully and advancing, first make an attack by temptation and place hindrances to hamper our way, to wit, evil thoughts. But we need not fear their suggestions, for by prayer, fasting, and faith in the Lord their attack immediately fails. But even when it does they cease not, but knavishly by subtlety come on again. For when they cannot deceive the heart openly with foul pleasures they approach in different guise, and thenceforth shaping displays they attempt to strike fear, changing their shapes, taking the forms of women, wild beasts, creeping things, gigantic bodies, and troops of soldiers. But not even then need ye fear their deceitful displays. For they are nothing and quickly disappear, especially if a man fortify himself beforehand with faith and the sign of the cross. Yet are they bold and very shameless, for if thus they are worsted they make an onslaught in another manner, and pretend to prophesy and foretell the future, and to shew themselves of a height reaching to the roof and of great breadth; that they may stealthily catch by such displays those who could not be deceived by their arguments. If here also they find the soul strengthened by faith and a hopeful mind, then they bring their leader to their aid.'

'You must take no notice of these thoughts of vanity, but say to Satan, when he suggests them to you in any of your actions: Begone, Satan, I not only renounce thee, but also thy evil suggestions. I did not begin for thee, and I will not end for thee.'
