“There is nothing more practical than love. Love will determine how you spend your time. Love will determine what movies you watch. Love will determine what kinds of things you laugh at. Love will determine what kind of music you listen to. If we truly love Jesus, it has to change our choices.”
Father Mike Schmitz

George Weigel
“The real challenge the rich young man faced was not just giving up his possessions, but giving up himself. The last command Jesus says (“Come, follow me”) is the one that we so often overlook and think that he must have left Jesus simply because he liked his green bills.”
George Weigel

Peter Kreeft
“Divine love is not "humanity" but "neighbor", the concrete, unique individual. You can only ever love individuals, because only individuals ever exist. Classes and collections are abstract objects of thought, not concretely real things. We group people into groups, but real people are concrete individuals.”
Peter Kreeft

Thomas Dubay
“The worldling will not face his colossal inner blah. He multiplies experiences in an unending and desperate attempt to numb his spirit. It hurts so much not to have attained the very reason for his existence, an immersion in God, that he uses things as a narcotic. The worldling pursues prestige or comfort or wealth or sexual encounters not because they basically satisfy him (if they did, once would be enough) but because they dull his inner aching. Always and eventually he is faced with his personal failure. But the sight if it is so revolting and painful, he dives once again into the aspirin sea of frantic pursuits.”
Thomas Dubay

John Henry Newman
“Catholicism is a deep matter. You cannot take it up in a teacup” [..] “You must consent to think.”
John Henry Newman
