We are all busy people. Many of us have convinced ourselves that we simply do not have the time to read, ponder and reflect on the wealth of spiritual wisdom our Catholic Church has accumulated over the centuries. Yet, we owe God and ourselves this reflective time.
If we spend little or no time, pondering the truths and mysteries of our Faith, we are not going to progress spiritually - a growth essential to our eternal well-being and that of those around us.
You will find 100 quotations here. Some may be familiar to you. Others maybe not so much. All offer much fruit for your reflection and contemplation.
About the Author
Michael Seagriff practiced law for 30 years, as a general practitioner, prosecutor, criminal defense attorney and Administrative Law Judge. His vocation as a Lay Dominican created an insatiable desire to learn, study, live and share his Faith. For more ten years he led a Prison Ministry program and has spent more then twelve years promoting Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration, serving as coordinator of that devotion in his former parish. He always wanted to write and share these experiences but never seemed to have the time when he was working. All that changed unexpectedly in 2009 when he retired. Articles that he has written since retiring have been published in Homiletic & Pastoral Review, The Catholic Sun, a weekly diocesan newspaper, and on Catholic Exchange.com CatholicLane.com, Catholic Online.com, Catholic Writers Guild Blog, and Zenit.org. The author acquired his healthy sense of humor and his love for the Catholic Faith from his deceased Dad and Mom and employs both frequently, sometimes to the joy and at other times to the consternation of those closest to him. He blogs at: http://harvestingthefruitsofcontemplation.blogspot.com/.
