Vocatus Atque Non Vocatus Deus Aderit
"Lord, What Wilt Thou Have me to do?" -- St. Paul
Lord, Jesus Christ take all my freedom, my memory, my understanding and my will.
All That I have and cherish You have given me. I surrender it all to be guarded by Your will.
Your love and Your grace are wealth enough for me. Give me these Lord and I ask for nothing more.
St. Igantius of Loyola
"Freedom is a need of the soul, and nothing else. It is in striving toward God that the soul strives continually after a condition of freedom. God alone is the inciter and guarantor of freedom. He is the only guarantor. External freedom is only an aspect of interior freedom. Political freedom, as the Western world has known it, is only a political reading of the Bible. Religion and freedom are indivisible. Without freedom the soul dies. Without the soul there is no justification for freedom. . . . There has never been a society or nation without God. But history is cluttered with the wreckage of nations that became indifferent to God, and died." ----- Whittaker Chambers
"He Hath shewed thee, O Man, what is good. And what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God." Micah 6:8
"For since in the wisdom of God the world did not come to know God through wisdom, it was the will of God through the foolishness of the proclamation to save those who have faith. For Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we proclaim Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentile, but to those who are called, Jews and Greeks alike, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength." 1 Corinthians 1:21-25
