"God gives us some things, as the beginning of faith, even when we do not pray. Other things, such as perseverance, he has only provided for those who pray."

St Augustine

"If, devout soul, it is your will to please God and live a life of serenity in this world, unite yourself always and in all things to the divine will. Reflect that all the sins of your past wicked life happened because you wandered from the path of God's will. For the future, embrace God's good pleasure and say to him in every happening: "Yea, Father, for so it hath seemed good in thy sight." "

St Alphonsus de Liguori

"It is vanity to be concerned with the present only and not to make provision for things to come."

Thomas á Kempis

"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!
