Catholic Quotes and Sayings to make You think



Some thought-provoking Catholic quotes and sayings to make you start thinking critically.

For a stalk to grow or a flower to open there must be time that cannot be forced; nine months must go by for the birth of a human child; to write a book or compose music often years must be dedicated to patient research. To find the mystery there must be patience, interior purification, silence, waiting. ~Blessed Pope John Paul II

I have a mustard seed; and I am not afraid to use it. ~Pope Benedict XVI

The gate of Heaven is very low; only the humble can enter it. ~Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton

Why should we defend ourselves when we are misunderstood and misjudged? Let us leave that aside. Let us not say anything. It is so sweet to let others judge us in any way they like. O blessed silence, which gives so much peace to the soul! ~Saint Therese de Lisieux

It is very helpful to confess with a certain regularity. It is true our sins are always the same; but we clean our homes, our rooms, at least once a week even if the dirt is always the same, in order to live in cleanliness, in order to start again. Otherwise, the dirt might not be seen, but it builds up. ~Pope Benedict XVI

Because in the school of the Spirit man learns wisdom through humility, knowledge by forgetting, how to speak by silence, how to live by dying. ~Johannes Tauler

As gifts increase in you, let your humility grow, for you must consider that everything is given to you on loan. ~Saint Padre Pio of Pietrelcina

Man has often lost his way, but modern man has lost his address. ~Gilbert K. Chesterton

Fight all false opinions, but let your weapons be patience, sweetness, and love. Roughness is bad for your own soul and spoils the best cause. ~Saint John of Kanty

Souls do not wish to be bullied, but gently brought back; such is the nature of man. ~Saint Francis de Sales

IN Paradise there are many Saints who never gave alms on earth: their poverty justified them. There are many Saints who never mortified their bodies by fasting, or wearing hair shirts: their bodily infirmities excused them. There are many Saints too who were not virgins: their vocation was otherwise. But in Paradise there is no Saint who was not humble. ~Father Cajetan Mary da Bergamo

Idleness is a pestilence to a Christian man; we ought always therefore to be doing something, especially when we are alone in our rooms, lest the devil should come in and catch us idle. ~Saint Philip Neri

No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks. ~Saint Ambrose of Milan

Woman, because she was created by being drawn from man’s side, is constantly trying to return to him. She desires the original unity of one flesh and one bone. The desire for unity between man and woman is a mirror of the relationship between Christ and the soul. As woman longs for union with man in human relationships, she is also drawn to unity with God. He calls her to become one with Him: to come under His side and become flesh of His flesh and bone of His bone. This occurs during reception of Eucharist. The covering of the head with a veil symbolizes the reality of woman sheltered in the side of her Source and becoming one with Him. She becomes covered and hidden in her Divine Spouse. ~Saint John Chrysostom

If you have the courage to imitate Mary Magdalene in her sins, have the courage to imitate her penance! ~Saint Padre Pio of Pietrelcina

Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows. ~Pope Paul VI

It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is He who provoked you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is He who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is He who reads in your heart your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle. It is Jesus who stirs in you the desire to do something great with your lives, the will to follow an ideal, the refusal to allow yourselves to be ground down by mediocrity, the courage to commit yourselves humbly and patiently to improving yourselves and society, making the world more human and more fraternal. ~Blessed Pope John Paul II

Don’t say you have a chaste mind if you have unchaste eyes, because an unchaste eye is the messenger of an unchaste heart. ~Saint Augustine of Hippo

Suppose an artist paints in beautiful lines and colors the likeness of someone's face and form. Then, once the portrait is completed, someone else comes along, picks it up and, thinking that he could do a better job, makes changes in the picture. Wouldn't that be a serious wrong to the first artist, and a good reason for him to be indignant? And do you think it likely you could get away with acting the same way, with a rash and wicked presumption that offends God -- the Artist who created you? The apostate angels taught us to paint the eyes with blackness drawn round them in a circle, and to stain the checks with a deceitful red, and to change the hair with false colors, and to mask all truth about the real appearance of face and head. . . God says, "Let us make man in our image and likeness"; does anyone dare to alter and change what God has made? They are laying hands on God when they try to reform what He has formed. ~Saint Cyprian of Carthage

It is a good thing to use the tongue sparingly, and to keep a calm and rightly balanced heart in the use of speech. For it is not right to say things that are foolish and absurd, or to utter all that occurs to the mind. We ought instead to know and reflect that, though we are far separated from heaven, God hears what we say, and that it is good for us to speak without offense. ~Saint Gregory of Neocaesarea

You must concentrate on pleasing God alone, and if He is pleased, you must be pleased. ~Saint Padre Pio of Pietrelcina

You don't need to wallow in guilt. Wallow in the mercy of God. When you are guilty, say so to God through a confessor. Acknowledge your problems and sins. The moment you have stated them, God puts His Hand over you and you are a newborn babe. ~Saint John Marie Vianney

God gave us faculties for our use; each of them will receive its proper reward. Then do not let us try to charm them to sleep, but permit them to do their work until divinely called to something higher. ~Saint Teresa of Avila

To be perfect means to love God not a little, but a great deal. It means not to stop at the point at which we have arrived, but with His help to progress to love. ~Pope John Paul I

But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? ~Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Allow the light and the healing presence of Christ to shine brightly through your lives. In that way, all those who come in contact with you will discover the loving kindness of God. ~Blessed Pope John Paul II

Pride is an illusion, a lie and a thief. And since it is a truth of faith that we are nothing, he who esteems himself and thinks that he is someone is a seducer who deceives himself. ~Saint John Eudes

The devil fears hearts on fire with love of God. ~Saint Catherine of Siena

It constantly happens that the Lord permits a soul to fall so that it may grow humbler. When it is honest, and realizes what it has done, and returns, it makes ever- increasing progress in our Lord's service. ~Saint Teresa of Avila

Great graces cannot be obtained without humility. When you yourself experience humiliation, you should take it as a sure sign that some great grace is in store. ~Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor. . . Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting. ~Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Love Holy Scripture and wisdom will love you. Love her, and she will keep you. Honor her, and she will embrace you. ~Saint Jerome

God always gives a greater blessing to humble beginnings than to those that start with the chiming of bells. ~Saint Vincent de Paul
