“The barbarism of the new era will not be like that of the Huns of old; it will be technical, scientific, secular, and propagandized. It will come not from without, but from within, for barbarism is not outside us; it is underneath us. Older civilizations were destroyed by imported barbarism; modern civilization breeds its own.”

Best Friends…

“The best friends are those who know how to keep the same silences.”


“In journalism, the modern man wants controversy, not truth.”

Hearing nuns’ confessions…

“Hearing nuns’ confessions is like being stoned to death with popcorn.”

Show me your hands…

“Show me your hands. Do they have scars from giving? Show me your feet. Are they wounded in service? Show me your heart. Have you left a place for divine love?”


“Physical idleness deteriorates the mind; spiritual idleness deteriorates the heart.”


“Jealousy is the tribute mediocrity pays to genius.”

Sadness to Joy…

“To pass from sadness to joy requires a birth, a moment of travail and labor, for no one ever mounts to a higher level of life without death to the lower.”

Baloney and Blarney…

“Baloney is flattery laid on so thick it cannot be true, and blarney is flattery so thin we love it.”

Cause and Effect…

“A popular God-is-dead book in the United States argues that homosexuality will become normal in a humanistic society where there is no restriction of morals which come from religion. St. Paul declared homosexuality and atheism were related to one another as effect to cause.”


“Humility is not self-contempt but the truth about ourselves coupled with a reverence for others; it is self-surrender to the highest goal.”

Modern Man’s Passivity…

“Modern man has become passive in the face of evil. He has so long preached a doctrine of false tolerance; has so long believed that right and wrong were only differences in a point of view, that now when evil works itself out in practice he is paralyzed to do anything against it.”


“Love is a mutual self-giving which ends in self-recovery.”


“Pride is an admission of weakness; it secretly fears all competition and dreads all rivals.”


“In the marriage act, love is triune: wife gives self to husband and husband to self and out of that mutual self-giving is born the ecstasy of love. The spirit too must have its ecstasy. What the union of husband and wife is in the order of flesh, the union of the human and the Risen Christ is in Holy Communion.”

The Choice…

“This is the choice before us: either try to revolutionize the world and break under it or revolutionize ourselves and remake the world.”

The New Atheism…

“For the new atheism is not like the old, theoretical atheism, which prided itself on being intellectually compounded of a little science, anthropology, and comparative religion. The new atheism is not of the intellect, but of the will; it is an act of free and eager rejection of morality and its demands. It starts with the affirmation of self and the denial of the moral law.”


“Our intellects do not make the truth; they attain it: they discover it.”

Your own weather…

“Each of us makes his own weather, determines the color of the skies in the emotional universe which he inhabits.”


“The big print giveth, and the fine print taketh away.”

Life is like…

“Life is like a cash register, in that every account, every thought, every deed, like every sale, is registered and recorded.”

The Supreme Moment…

“To every Christian…there comes the supreme moment when he must choose between temporal pleasure and eternal freedom. In order to save our souls, we must often run the risk of losing our bodies.”

A smile…

“A smile is laughter’s whisper and has its roots in the soul.”

To do God’s Will…

“To do God’s Will until death, that is the inner heart of all holiness.”

Modern Man’s Salvation…

“The modern man has already one-half the condition of salvation: he is miserable.”


“The disrespect for authority which is the outgrowth of the stupidity that every individual is his own determinant of right and wrong has now become an epidemic of lawlessness.”


“Politeness is a way of showing externally the internal regard we have for others. Good manners are the shadows cast by virtues.”
