A Quote From John Huss

Mine enemies in the Council, more numerous than were Christ’s, are found amongst the bishops, and doctors, and also amongst the princes of this age, and the Pharisees. But I confide myself entirely to Almighty God my Savior; I hope, therefore, he will grant my ardent prayer, and put prudence and wisdom in my mouth, that I may be able to resist them; that he may bestow on me his Holy Spirit to fortify me in the truth; so that the gates of hell shall not be able to lead me from it, and that I may face, with an intrepid heart, temptation, imprisonment, and the sufferings of a cruel death. –John Huss, Before his arrival at the Council of Constance

A Thought From My Class today..

A frequent celebration of general councils is an especial means for cultivating the field of the Lord and effecting the destruction of briars, thorns, and thistles, to wit, heresies, errors, and schism, and of bringing forth a most abundant harvest. The neglect to summon councils fosters and develops all these evils, as may be plainly seen from a recollection of the past and a consideration of existing conditions.—Decree Frequens of the Council of Constance

Believe in Christ’s Cross

I am not trying, O Lord, to penetrate Thy loftiness, for I cannot begin to match my understanding with it, but I desire in some measure to understand Thy truth, which my heart believes and loves. For I do not seek to understand in order to believe, but I believe in order to understand.—Anselm of Canterbury

Our redemption through Christ’s suffering is that deeper affection in us which not only frees us from slavery to sin, but also wins for us the true liberty of sons of God, so that we do all things out of love rather than fear.—Peter Abelard

Calvin on Sanctification

Let us not cease to do the utmost, that we may incessantly go forward in the way of the Lord; and let us not despair because of the smallness of our accomplishments. —John Calvin

Longing For God

“Most high, omnipotent, merciful Lord, Thine is all praise, the honor, and the glory and every benediction. To Thee alone are they confined, and no man is worthy to speak Thy Name”
Francis of Assisi

“But the believing soul longs and faints for God; she rests sweetly in the contemplation of Him. She glories in the reproach of the Cross, until the glory of His face shall be revealed.
Like the Bride, the dove of Christ, that is covered with silver wings, white with innocence and purity, she reposes in the thought of Thine abundant kindness, Lord Jesus.”
–Bernard of Clairvaux

Robert Herrick, “Litany to the Holy Spirit”

When, God knows, I’m toss’d about Either with despair or doubt;
Yet before the glass be out,
Sweet Spirit, comfort me!
When the tempter me pursu’th With the sins of all my youth, And half damns me with untruth,
Sweet Spirit, comfort me!
