It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels.
“Do not grieve over temptations you suffer. When the Lord intends to bestow a particular virtue on us, He often permits us first to be tempted by the opposite vice. Therefore, look upon every temptation as an invitation to grown in a particular virtue and a promise by God that you will be successful, if only you stand fast.”
― St. Philip Neri
” Credinta si ratiunea sunt ca doua aripi cu care spiritul uman se ridica spre contemplarea adevarului. Dumnezeu este cel care a pus in inima omului dorinta de a cunoaste adevarul si, in definitiv, de a-l cunoaste pe El pentru ca astfel, cunoscundu-l si iubindu-l, sa poata ajunge la adevarul intreg despre sine insusi.”
Papa Ioan al II-lea (Fides et ratio, 1; 14 septembrie 1998)
Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth;
and God has placed in the human heart a desire to know the truth—in a word, to know
himself—so that, by knowing and loving God, men and women may also come to the fullness of
truth about themselves.
