"Whoever wants to stand alone without the support of a master and guide will be like the tree that stands alone in a field without a proprietor. No matter how much the tree bears, passers-by will pick the fruit before it ripens. "

St John of the Cross, OCD - Doctor of the Church

"God commands not impossibilities, but by commanding he suggests to you to do what you can, to ask for what is beyond your strength; and he helps you, that you may be able."

St Augustine

"Spiritual persons ought to be equally ready to experience sweetness and consolation in the things of God, or to suffer and keep their ground in drynesses of spirit and devotion, and for as long as God pleases, without their making any complaint about it."

St Philip Neri

"Father, may they be one as You and I are one".

Catholic Theology

The greatest work on theology ever written is the Summa of St Thomas Aquinas.

A precis of this work, called "A Tour of the Summa" by Monsignor Paul Glenn, is available online at CatholicTheology.info

It is a marvellous work for the modern catholic in a hurry. Happy reading!
