“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. But our love for mankind cannot be resigned to seeing them deprive themselves of salvation. 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
“celibacy, the sign of our unlimited availability to Christ and to others.”
Fr. George Rutler, The Cure d'Ars Today: St. John Vianney
“man is saved with the world and not from it.”
Fr. George Rutler, The Cure d'Ars Today: St. John Vianney
“The priesthood is the love of the heart of Jesus.”

Fr. George Rutler, The Cure d'Ars Today: St. John Vianney
“The functional defect of socialism is that it is not social. It has not helped the poor man by eradicating the prince; it has only made the prince poor. If it has not put a chicken in every pot, it has removed the peacock from every lawn. It has made liberality a casualty of an artifact called liberalism. Such may satisfy the motive of envy; it is irrelevant to the motive of charity, and in the collectivist bosom it engenders the very greed it scorned.”
Fr. George Rutler, The Cure d'Ars Today: St. John Vianney
“If one of the damned could just once say ‘My God, I love you’ it would no longer be hell for him.”
Fr. George Rutler, The Cure d'Ars Today: St. John Vianney
