More quotes from the good Bishop

I am over halfway through The life of Christ by Fulton J. Sheen now, and I am really enjoying the way it is written. Gives you a more personal take on Our Lord's life, and explains well the political structure of the times.
Here are some more great one-liners from it to get you thinking:

As men love God they will also love their country.

When our responsive love melts into obedience, then God makes His dwelling within us.

All false beatitudes which make happiness depend on self-expression, license, having a good time, or "eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow you die" He scorns because they bring mental disorders, unhappiness, false hopes, and anxieties.

The wicked fear the good, because the good are a constant reproach to their consciences.

Belief in immortality dies easily in those who live in such a way that they cannot face the prospect of judgement.

Whenever man attempts to do what he knows to be the Masters Will, a power will be given to him equal to the duty.

The instinct of justice in the human heart is so deep that, even in great deeds of injustice the villains wear the mantle of justice.


That last one sure does hit the nail on the head for all the "rights" groups out there doesn't it?

Thanks for continuing to share these.

I particularly liked this one ...
"When our responsive love melts into obedience, then God makes His dwelling within us."

How true that is!
