“The spirit of the Lord acts on us without force or violence. The subtly of God can be frustrating for those of us that want to be transformed in an instant. Yet faith assures us that God is at work in those who believe. As long as we make time for God, then his work within us will continue unto the day of Christ Jesus.”

“Just as in one man there is one soul and one body, yet many members; even so the Catholic Church is one body, having many members. The soul that quickens this body is the Holy Spirit; and therefore in the Creed after confessing our belief in the Holy Spirit, we are bid to believe in the Holy Catholic Church.”

— St. Thomas Aquinas


“There are two loves, the love of God and the love of the world. If the love of the world takes possession of you, there is no way for the love of God to enter into you. Let the love of the world take the second place, and let the love of God dwell in you. Let the better love take over.”

— St. Augustine
