Words to Live by – from Catholic Tradition

 

St. Alphonsus de Liguori, Doctor of the Church:

He who advances most in meditation makes the greatest progress in perfection.  In mental prayer the soul is filled with holy thoughts, with holy affections, desires, and holy resolutions, and with love for God.  There man sacrifices his passions, his appetites, his earthly attachments, and all the interests of self-love.

The Great Means of Salvation and of Perfection, Part II, Section 1, #II, in a section called: Mental Prayer is Indispensable in Order to Attain Perfection.

 

 

 

Catholic Candle note: To assist parents in homeschooling, we call your attention to a new Traditional Catholic homeschool which is now accessible worldwide.  Here is some information about this homeschool:

Angelic Doctor Academy

We would like to introduce Angelic Doctor Academy, a Traditional Catholic homeschool for grades 9 – 12 (lower grades coming soon).  We think Traditional Catholics will appreciate our unique and militantly Traditional Catholic curriculum.  We have written many new textbooks because we saw the problems in many books commonly used, whether they were history, science, or in other disciplines.  We think Catholic parents – especially busy mothers – will appreciate our unique grading system in which we correct everything, including handwritten essays.  This allows the parents to concentrate on teaching, explaining, and keeping order.   Please visit  https://www.ada.school to learn more.   Mention that you are a Catholic Candle subscriber for a 10% discount on materials.  Thank you!
