Second Vatican Council
“Particular law remaining in force, the use of the Latin language is to be preserved in the Latin rites.”
Second Vatican Council, Sacrosanctum Concilium: Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy

Adolphe Tanquerey
“[W]hat counts before God is the generous, oft-renewed effort despite apparent failures.”
Adolphe Tanquerey, The Spiritual Life

Second Vatican Council
“Basing itself upon Sacred Scripture and Tradition, [this Council] teaches that the Church, now sojourning on earth as an exile, is necessary for salvation. Christ, present to us in His Body, which is the Church, is the one Mediator and the unique way of salvation. In explicit terms He Himself affirmed the necessity of faith and baptism and thereby affirmed also the necessity of the Church, for through baptism as through a door men enter the Church. Whosoever, therefore, knowing that the Catholic Church was made necessary by Christ, would refuse to enter or to remain in it, could not be saved.”
Second Vatican Council, Lumen Gentium: Dogmatic Constitution on the Church

“God made me to know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him in this world, and to be happy with Him forever in the next.”
Plenary Councils of Baltimore, Baltimore Catechism, No. 3

Second Vatican Council
“All Christians in any state or walk of life are called to the fullness of Christian life and to the perfection of charity. ... In order to reach this perfection the faithful should use the strength dealt out to them by Christ's gift, so that ... doing the will of the Father in everything, they may wholeheartedly devote themselves to the glory of God and to the service of their neighbor.”
Second Vatican Council, Lumen Gentium: Dogmatic Constitution on the Church
