Catholic quotes

Going through some old files on my computer, I found a treasure trove of Catholic quotes I had squirreled away long ago. One of them them in particular struck me so much so, that I decided to change my blog header and include it. 

I am often amazed at the foresight and prophecy of our early Catholic saints. This first quote is one such example:


"After the year 1900, toward the middle of the 20th century, the people of that time will become unrecognizable. When the time for the Advent of the Antichrist approaches, peoples minds will grow cloudy from carnal passions, and dishonor and lawlessness will grow stronger. Then the world will become unrecognizable. Peoples appearances will change, and it will be impossible to distinguish men from women due to their shamelessness in dress and style of hair. These people will be cruel and will be like wild animals because of the temptations of the Antichrist. There will be no respect for parents and elders, love will disappear, and Christian pastors, bishops, and priests will become vain men, completely failing to distinguish the right-hand way from the left." -St Nilus 5th Century AD (contemporary and defender of St John Crysostom) 


“I am worried about America! I am not so much worried about its politics and economics, important though they be: I am worried about its soul. After all, politics and economics are determined by the sense of values which underlies them.” -Archbishop Fulton Sheen

“A true worshipper is one whose mind has not been defiled with any false belief.” -Pope St. Leo the Great

“Heretics think false things about God and call it their faith.” -St. Augustine


"Remember, you will be faulted not because you are ignorant against your will, but because you neglect to seek out what makes you ignorant." -Saint Augustine-

"Not to oppose error is to approve it; and not to defend truth is to suppress it; and indeed to neglect to confound evil men, when we can do it, is no less a sin than to encourage them." -Pope St. Felix III



"When all this is considered there is good reason to fear lest this great perversity may be as it were a foretaste, and perhaps the beginning of those evils which are reserved for the last days; and that there may be already in the world the "Son of Perdition" of whom the Apostle speaks (II. Thess. ii., 3). Such, in truth, is the audacity and the wrath employed everywhere in persecuting religion, in combating the dogmas of the faith, in brazen effort to uproot and destroy all relations between man and the Divinity! While, on the other hand, and this according to the same apostle is the distinguishing mark of Antichrist, man has with infinite temerity put himself in the place of God, raising himself above all that is called God; in such wise that although he cannot utterly extinguish in himself all knowledge of God, he has contemned God's majesty and, as it were, made of the universe a temple wherein he himself is to be adored. 'He sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself as if he were God' " (II. Thess. ii., 2). -Pope St. Pius X, E Supremi

"If the faith is in imminent peril, prelates ought to be accused by their subjects, even in public." -St. Thomas Aquinas

"The greatest obstacle in the apostolate of the Church is the timidity or rather the cowardice of the faithful."-Pope St. Pius X


"When lies have been accepted for some time, the truth always astounds with an air of novelty."- St. Clement of Alexandria

"Holy Communion is the shortest and the safest way to Heaven."-St Pius X

"The longer you stay away from Communion, the more your soul will become weak, and in the end you will become dangerously indifferent." - St. John Bosco 

"If angels could be jealous of men, they would be so for one reason: Holy Communion." - St. Maximilian Kolbe 

"How I loved the feasts!.... I especially loved the processions in honor of the Blessed Sacrament. What a joy it was for me to throw flowers beneath the feet of God!... I was never so happy as when I saw my roses touch the sacred Monstrance..." - St. Therese the Little Flower

"Until we have a passionate love for our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament we shall accomplish nothing," - St. Peter Julian Eymard 

"Ask Jesus to make you a saint. After all, only He can do that. Go to confession regularly and to Communion as often as you can," - St. Dominic Savio

“Mary seeks for those who approach her devoutly and with reverence, for such she loves, nourishes, and adopts as her children.” -St. Bonaventure of Bagnoregio

“Only after the Last Judgment will Mary get any rest; from now until then, she is much too busy with her children.” -St. John Vianney


“If you put all the love of all the mothers into one heart it still would not equal the love of the Heart of Mary for her children.” -St. Louis de Montfort

“Given the breakdown in family life, the wholesale attack on innocent and defenseless human lives, and the violation of the integrity of the union of marriage in our society, the call to the martyrdom of witness is ever more urgent.” -Cardinal Raymond Burke

“The Church of the Lord is built upon the rock of the apostles among so many dangers in the world; it therefore remains unmoved. The Church's foundation is unshakable and firm against assaults of the raging sea. Waves lash at the Church but do not shatter it. Although the elements of this world constantly beat upon the Church with crashing sounds, the Church possesses the safest harbor of salvation for all in distress.” -St. Ambrose of Milan


“If a soul is not clothed with the teachings of the Church he cannot merit to have Jesus seated in him.” -St. Jerome

“If one yields ground on any single point of Catholic doctrine, one will later have to yield later in another, and again in another, and so on until such surrenders come to be something normal and acceptable. And when one gets used to rejecting dogma bit by bit, the final result will be the repudiation of it altogether.” -St. Vincent of Lerins

“What shall a Catholic do if some portion of the Church detaches itself from communion of the universal Faith? What other choice can he make if some new contagion attempts to poison, no longer a small part of the Church, but the whole Church at once, then his great concern will be to attach himself to antiquity (Tradition) which can no longer be led astray by any lying novelty.” -St. Vincent of Lerins

“It is an error to believe that Christ did not teach a determined body of doctrine applicable to all times and to all men, but rather that He inaugurated a religious movement adapted, or to be adapted, to different times and different places.” -Pope St. Pius X


In Christ,
