"To do God's will -- this was the goal upon which the saints constantly fixed their gaze. They were fully persuaded that in this consists the entire perfection of the soul. "

St Alphonsus de Liguori

"Before a man chooses his confessor, he ought to think well about it, and pray about it also; but when he has once chosen, he ought not to change, except for most urgent reasons, but put the utmost confidence in his director."

St Philip Neri

"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!
