Pray with your intelligence. Bring things to God that you have thought out and think them out again with Him. That is the secret of good judgment.More Charles Brent quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
God has special confidences for each soul. Indeed, it would seem as though the deepest truths came only in moments of profound devotional silence and contemplation.More Charles Brent quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The unity of Christendom is not a luxury, but a necessity. The world will go limping until Christ's prayer that all may be one is answered. We must have unity, not at all costs, but at all risks. A unified Church is the only offering we dare present to the coming Christ, for in it alone will He find room to dwell.More Charles Brent quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Commemoration of Lanfranc, Prior of Le Bec, Archbishop of Canterbury, 1089 Only he who flings himself upward when the pull comes to drag him down, can hope to break the force of temptation. Temptation may be an invitation to hell, but much more is it an opportunity to reach heaven. At the moment of temptation, sin and righteousness are both very near the Christian; but, of the two, the latter is the nearer.More Charles Brent quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It seems to me, as time goes on, that the only thing that is worth seeking for is to know and to be known by Christ -- a privilege open alone to the childlike, who, with receptivity, guilelessness, and humility, move Godward.More Charles Brent quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
