“St. Ignatius was second in succession to St. Peter as bishop of Antioch. He was a student of Christ's most beloved apostle John. So what Ignatius wrote pulses with the authority Christ gave to Peter and the heart John could hear beating at the Last Supper.”
George Rutler

“Evil claims to be natural, and this is the heart of its deceit. Sin rarely declares itself as sin, and the sinner tends to claim some high motive and some pink-and-white complexion for each decay. Each enslavement to sin calls itself a new form of liberation as it tightens its chains. Rare is the tyrant who does not cloak his extravagant selfishness in the titles of altruism and affected goodwill.”
Fr. George Rutler, The Cure d'Ars Today: St. John Vianney

“only the Holy Spirit permits us to become aware of the gravity of sin and of the tragedy of the loss of the sense of God, and gives the desire for conversion.

We cannot directly produce the conversion of souls, but we are responsible for the proclamation of the Faith, of the totality of the Faith and of its demands.”
Fr. George Rutler, The Cure d'Ars Today: St. John Vianney
