Reflections Uncategorized

“Our fatherland is paradise, heaven. We have departed from it by pride, disobedience, abuse of the senses, therefore it is needed that we return to it by obedience, contempt of the world, and by taming the desires of the flesh; thus we return to our own country by another road. By forbidden pleasures we have forfeited the joys of paradise, by penance we must regain them.” ~Pope St. Gregory I


“What the soul is in the body, let Christians be in the world.” ~St. John Chrysostom
