The Church is not so much a continuously living thing,
as something that has survived a thousand crucifixions
through a thousand Resurrections.

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

If you have not clung to a broken piece of your old ship
in the dark night of the soul,
your faith may not have the sustaining power
to carry you through to the end of the journey.

The Rev. Rufus M. Jones

To be thoroughly religious,
one must, I believe, be sorely disappointed.
One’s faith in God increases as one’s faith in the world decreases.
The happier the man, the farther he is from God.

George Jean Nathan, writer

No one is fit to comprehend heavenly things
who hath not resigned himself to suffer adversities for Christ.

Thomas a Kempis

Long illnesses are good schools of mercy
for those who tend the sick,
and of loving patience
for those who suffer.

Jean Pierre Camus
