Don’t let the bible be like a software license to you. Don’t just scroll to the bottom and click ‘I agree’ - read it through and live it out.
A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.
"Since Christ Himself has said, "This is My Body" who shall dare to doubt that It is His Body?"
-St. Cyril of Jerusalem
Before the sin, Satan assures us that it is of no consequence; after the sin, he persuades us that it is unforgivable.
The resident on call got the job of doing the salines … and they were horrible because you saw one intact, whole baby being born, and sometimes they were alive. That was very, very frightening. It was a very stomach-turning kind of existence.
Dr. Anthony Levatino, M.D. - Former Abortionist (via heartsunited4life)
They don`t do salines much anymore, but babies aborted through prostaglandins are sometimes born alive…
When we have to reply to anyone who has insulted us,we should be careful. A soft answer extinguishes the fire of wrath.
To every man, however holy he may be, there always remains some imperfection, because he has been drawn from nothingness: so that we do no injury to the saints when, in recounting their virtues, we relate their sins and defects; but, on the contrary, those who write their lives seem, for this reason, to do a great injury to manking by concealing the sins and imperfections of the saints, under pretence of honouring them, not referring to the commencement of their lives, for fear of diminishing the esteem of their sanctity. Oh, no, indeed, this is not to act properly; but it is to wrong the saints and all posterity.
—St. Francis de Sales, Consoling Thoughts
If you pray well, you will live well; if you live well, you will die well; and if you die well, all will be well.
Poor human reason when it trusts in itself substitutes the strangest absurdities for the highest divine concepts.

Our society is the first one that simply does not give us any answer to the problem of suffering except a thousand means of avoiding it.
