What is your Favorite Catholic Christian Quote?

I don’t have just one favorite, but this one stands out:

"We cannot continue to send our children to Caesar for their education and be surprised when they come home as Romans. "

~Voddie T. Baucham, Jr.

“Abortion is healthcare as rąpe is love-making. [In that] they are opposites.” — Seth Dillon

“Efforts to normalize sinful behavior will only take us deeper into darkness & despair. Instead let us humbly acknowledge our sins & seek repentance… Let us embrace His Way.” — Bishop J. Strickland

“For the past two hundred years, atheists have been loudly asserting that the dismissal of God will lead to human liberation. I would strenuously argue precisely the contrary. Once the human being is untethered from God, he becomes, in very short order, an object among objects, and hence susceptible to the grossest manipulation by the powerful and self-interested.” - Fr. Robert Barron

“Man is a being who seeks. His whole history confirms it. Even the life of each of us bears witness to it… Man is the being who seeks God. And even after finding him, he continues to seek him. And if he seeks him sincerely, he has already found him.” — St. John Paul II

“Why do we call illegal aliens ‘dreamers,’ but refuse to call beautiful Americans in the womb the same?” — Devin Sena

“People don’t seem to grasp that Heaven is simply the fruit of a life that pursues relationship with God on His terms and Hell is simply the fruit of a life that pursues its own course on its own terms.” — Mark Shea

“Let us try liberty — liberty, which is an act of faith in God and in His work.” — Frédéric Bastiat, The Law

Too often people confuse liberty with libertinism. They are not the same. For one allows one to serve God and the other serves oneself.

“No man who cares about originality will ever be original. It’s the man who’s only thinking about doing a good job or TELLING THE TRUTH who becomes really original ― and doesn’t notice it.” ― C.S. Lewis, Beyond Personality: The Christian Idea of God

“Humility is not some ‘lowliness’ or fake diminishing of self, but seeing ourselves for who we are, good & bad, before God. It’s reality.” — Fr. James Bromwich

“People lie for things that benefit them; not for things that destroy them.” — Mark Driscoll (This is true of the Apostles.)

He who is not angry when there is just cause for anger is immoral. Why? Because anger looks to the good of justice. And if you can live amid injustice without anger, you are immoral as well as unjust.

St. Thomas Aquinas

“God’s solution to the problem of evil?”
His Son, Jesus Christ." — Peter Kreeft

“There are really two things that get you through life: Faith in God & a Sense of Humor.” — Fr. Charles Murr

Hi Cade_One

I think humor is over-rated. Jesus was a ‘man of sorrows’ and the Bible has no humor at all. Humor is ok for at family dinner or a day at the park or a funny movie but it must be used sparingly.

April Fool’s! :joy:

In all seriousness though, I recommend Dr. Scott Hahn’s book, “A Father Who Keeps His Promises: God’s Covenant Love in Scripture.” God absolutely has a sense of humor. This dose not take away from God’s sorrows. And I would disagree that sorrows get us through life’s sufferings. Sorrows is a natural part of suffering.

There is a time to be serious and for mourning for sure.

Thanks for the April Fools joke about God having a sense of humor! I believed you for a minute until I realized that you cannot prove it.

“I know you are, but what am I?!” :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

(That’s a P.W. Herman quote, but he was not Catholic.)
