Catholic Priest quotes by Mitch Albom
#11. When a Catholic priest from across the street insulted one of our members, you demanded he apologize. When he did, you accepted, as his penance, a gesture. You waited until the Catholic schoolkids were in recess, playing in the schoolyard, then you and the priest strolled around the perimeter, arm in arm, showing that different faiths can indeed walk side by side, in harmony. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Catholic Priest quotes by Donald Trump
#12. You look at what happened to the priest over the weekend in Paris, where his throat was cut, 85-year-old, beloved Catholic priest. You look at what happened in Nice, France, a couple of weeks ago.I would say, you gotta take a look that, because something is going on, and it's not good. #Quote by Donald Trump
Catholic Priest quotes by Michael Coren
#13. Actually, what we really need to remember about Galileo is that most of the people who use his name in argument could barely spell it, let alone tell us what actually happened to the man. His case is used over and over again because critics can't think of any other scientists who were mistreated by the Church. And in this instance they're right. There may have been some people in the scientific world who did not enjoy Church support and were even challenged by Catholicism but, sorry to disappoint, there weren't very many of them. The Church has been the handmaiden of science and scientific discovery, and those who refer to Galileo tend to forget that Louis Pasteur, the inventor of pasteurization, was a devout Catholic, as was Alexander Fleming, who gave us penicillin. Or Father Nicolaus Copernicus, who first proposed the theory of the earth revolving around the sun - this was precisely what Galileo stated, but Copernicus taught it as theory and not fact. Or Monsignor Georges Henri Joseph Édouard Lemaître, a Belgian Roman Catholic priest and professor of physics at the Catholic University of Leuven, who proposed what became known as the Big Bang theory of the origin of the Universe. In the field of acceleration, Fr. Giambattista Riccioli changed the way we understand that particular science; the father of modern Egyptology was Fr. Athanasius Kircher, and the Yugoslavian Fr. Roger Boscovich was the founder of modern atomic theory. #Quote by Michael Coren
Catholic Priest quotes by Anne Lamott
#14. I have these secret pangs of shame about being single, like I wasn't good enough to get a husband. Rita reminded me of something I'd told her once, about the five rules of the world as arrived at by this Catholic priest named Tom Weston. The first rule, he says, is that you must not have anything wrong with you or anything different. The second one is that if you do have something wrong with you, you must get over it as soon as possible. The third rule is that if you can't get over it, you must pretend that you have. The fourth rule is that if you can't even pretend that you have, you shouldn't show up. You should stay home, because it's hard for everyone else to have you around. And the fifth rule is that if you are going to insist on showing up, you should at least have the decency to feel ashamed.
So Rita and I decided that the most subversive, revolutionary thing I could do was to show up for my life and not be ashamed. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Catholic Priest quotes by Peter Jurasik
#15. Interesting enough, we had a reunion of the 12 of us who graduated, right? The only one who wasn't there was the guy who became a priest, and he was literally in prison in Libya, for being a Catholic priest. Isn't that interesting? Everybody else made the reunion but that guy. #Quote by Peter Jurasik
Catholic Priest quotes by Louis Of Granada
#16. In fact, it is known from tales brought back by missionaries that the Japanese version of The Sinner's Guide was one of the bullwarks that sustained the faith of the Japanese Catholics during two centuries of terrible persecution, when both in Europe and Japan, Japanese Christianity was believed dead. In 1865, when missionaries were again allowed into Japan, missionary Father Bernard Petitjean was astonished to find in the hills around Nagasaki thousands of Japanese Catholics who had kept the Faith, hidden but vital, without priests, for over 200 years! Immense was the joy of these faithful ones at once again having a Catholic priest among them. The Sinner's Guide had played a providential role in sustaining the Faith in their souls during that trying time. #Quote by Louis Of Granada
Catholic Priest quotes by Carrie Coon
#17. I'm from a family with five kids in it, and my father almost became a Catholic priest. And my mother never went to church, but she's the best Christian I know. My siblings have all chosen different paths to or away from their spirituality. #Quote by Carrie Coon
Catholic Priest quotes by Pete Postlethwaite
#18. I was born and bred a Catholic. I was brought up a very strong Catholic - I practiced in a seminary for four years, from eleven to fourteen, and trained to be a Catholic priest. So I was very steeped in all that. #Quote by Pete Postlethwaite
Catholic Priest quotes by Julia Spencer-Fleming
#19. The only other person attending who was close to her age was Father St. Laurent, a devastatingly good-looking Roman Catholic priest who made the RC's vows of celibacy seem like a crime against the human gene pool. #Quote by Julia Spencer-Fleming
Catholic Priest quotes by Darynda Jones
#20. Cool. I could live vicariously through a Catholic priest. A thought that rarely occurred to me, for obvious reasons. I #Quote by Darynda Jones
Catholic Priest quotes by Peter Matthiessen
#21. I'm surprised you holy people talk to me," Wolfie said suddenly, "after what I done." He swayed there a moment, frowning. "As a Catholic priest, I must accept men's frailty. And as a European I am too old and tired to expend emotion upon matters I can do nothing about. #Quote by Peter Matthiessen
Catholic Priest quotes by Jonathan Morris
#22. I don't consider myself to be a media guy. It just happens to be that I've had opportunities in the media. I don't consider myself to be on a career path. I'm just a Christian and a Catholic priest. #Quote by Jonathan Morris
Catholic Priest quotes by Trudy Baker
#23. There was a Catholic priest and the Seventh Day Adventist minister sitting together on one flight. The priest ordered a Scotch and water. The minister said, "I'd rather commit adultery than drink." The priest looked up at me and said, "I didn't know I had a choice today." That was a fun trip. #Quote by Trudy Baker
Catholic Priest quotes by Bernard Of Clairvaux
#24. A saint is not someone who never sins, but one who sins less and less frequently and gets up more and more quickly. #Quote by Bernard Of Clairvaux
Catholic Priest quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#25. The Lord of the Rings is of course a fundamentally religious and Catholic work; unconsciously so at first, but consciously in the revision. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Catholic Priest quotes by Pope Pius X
#26. I accept with sincere belief the doctrine of faith as handed down to us from the Apostles by the orthodox Fathers, always in the same sense and with the same interpretation. #Quote by Pope Pius X
Catholic Priest quotes by Timothy M. Dolan
#27. The National Catholic Register's coverage of the Church universal, and the Church in our own country, is splendid. #Quote by Timothy M. Dolan
Catholic Priest quotes by Abel Ferrara
#28. I was raised a Catholic and when you're raised a Catholic they don't teach you to think for yourself. You're taught not to think too deeply about things. #Quote by Abel Ferrara
Catholic Priest quotes by Bernard Cornwell
#29. Christians like to dream of the perfect world, a place where there is no fighting, where sword-blades are hammered into plowshares, and where the lion, whatever that is, sleeps with the lamb. It is a dream. There has always been war and there will always be war. So long as one man wants another man's wife, or another man's land, or another man's cattle, or another man's silver, so long will there be war. And so long as one priest preaches that his god is the only god or the better god there will be war. #Quote by Bernard Cornwell
Catholic Priest quotes by Zathyn Priest
#30. Oh, Cameron," Eldon replied in a whisper, moving closer and brushing his lips over Cameron's mouth. "You are literally the very reason my heart beats. Nothing I have lost can compare with the love in you I have found. #Quote by Zathyn Priest
Catholic Priest quotes by Max Weber
#31. Of course the Catholic ethic was an ethic of intentions. But the concrete intentio of the single act determined its value. And the single good or bad action was credited to the doer determining his temporal and eternal fate. Quite realistically the Church recognized that man was not an absolutely clearly defined unity to be judged one way or the other, but that his moral life was normally subject to conflicting motives and his action contradictory. #Quote by Max Weber
Catholic Priest quotes by Pope John Paul II
#32. Man's life comes from God: it is his image and imprint, as sharing in his breath of life. God therefore is the sole Lord of this life: Man cannot do with it as he wills. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Catholic Priest quotes by Mary Rose O'Reilley
#33. I would not say I am looking for God. Or, I am not looking for God precisely. I am not seeking the God I learned about as a Catholic child, as an 18-year-old novice in a religious community, as an agnostic graduate student, as - but who cares about my disguises? Or God's. #Quote by Mary Rose O'Reilley
Catholic Priest quotes by Oscar Wilde
#34. How strange a thing this is! The Priest telleth me that the Soul is worth all the gold in the world, and the merchants say that it is not worth a clipped piece of silver. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Catholic Priest quotes by Diane Kruger
#35. I went to a Catholic school, and I just rebelled. #Quote by Diane Kruger
Catholic Priest quotes by Mark Wildyr
#36. Maybe I was a closet Catholic who, once taking the vows, can never lay them aside. #Quote by Mark Wildyr
Catholic Priest quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#37. When you leave a man alone with his Bible and the Holy Ghost inspires him, he's going to be a Catholic one way or another, even though he knows nothing about the visible church. His kind of Christianity may not be socially desirable, but will be real in the sight of God. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Catholic Priest quotes by Judy Grahn
#38. The shaman/priest/artist/teacher/leader does not operate for the sole benefit of herself and her kind but for the benefit of the people at large and of the universe and its patterns, as becomes what she perceives as fitting into place, into her sense of natural justice. #Quote by Judy Grahn
Catholic Priest quotes by Susana Martinez
#39. At 18, I guarded the parking lot at the Catholic church bingos. Now my dad made sure I could take care of myself. I carried a Smith and Wesson 357 magnum. #Quote by Susana Martinez
Catholic Priest quotes by Osamu Dazai
#40. There's something about you that smells a little of a Christian priest. I find it offensive. #Quote by Osamu Dazai
Catholic Priest quotes by Therese De Lisieux
#41. For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy. #Quote by Therese De Lisieux
Catholic Priest quotes by Helen Prejean
#42. The prospect that a person will be killed according to the policy he promulgates prompts the [priest] to urge clemency, an incomprehensible position logically. #Quote by Helen Prejean
Catholic Priest quotes by Cherie Priest
#43. The sound came again. There was a whistle to it, and a moan. It was almost a hiss, and it could've been a strangled gasp. Above all, it was quiet, and it seemed to have no source.
It whispered. #Quote by Cherie Priest
Catholic Priest quotes by Josiah Wedgwood
#44. There is no other Parliament like the English. For the ordinary man, elected to any senate, from Perisa to Peru, they may be a certain satisfaction in being elected ... but the man who steps into the English Parliament takes his place in a pageant that has ever been filing by since the birth of English history ... York or Lancaster, Protestant or Catholic, Court or Country, Roundhead or Cavalier, Whig or Tory, Liberal or Conservative, Labour or Unionist, they all fit into that long pageant that no other country in the world can show. #Quote by Josiah Wedgwood
Catholic Priest quotes by Michael Coren
#45. Galileo got into trouble because he maintained that since the new discoveries seemed to contradict scripture, those passages of scripture should be reinterpreted in a metaphorical way. He did not seek to oppose the Church nor to doubt the inspiration of scripture. The problem is that he abandoned science and started talking theology and so attracted the notice of the Roman Inquisition. If he had left theology out of his writings and discussions he would probably never have had problems. And he remained a faithful and devout Catholic to the end of his life. #Quote by Michael Coren
Catholic Priest quotes by Joseph Campbell
#46. The usual marriage in traditional cultures was arranged for by the families. It wasn't a person-to-person decision at all ... In the Middle Ages, that was the kind of marriage that was sanctified by the Church. And so the troubadour idea of real person-to-person Amor was very dangerous ... It is in direct contradiction to the way of the Church. The word AMOR spelt backwards is ROMA, the Roman Catholic Church, which was justifying marriages that were simply political and social in their character. And so came this movement validating individual choice, what I call following your bliss. #Quote by Joseph Campbell
Catholic Priest quotes by Lizz Winstead
#47. One of the first things Catholic school taught me is that babies were born sinners. You sucked before you took your first breath. #Quote by Lizz Winstead
Catholic Priest quotes by Wilfrid Laurier
#48. We are here a nation, composed of the most heterogeneous elements-Protestants and Catholics, English, French, German, Irish, Scotch, every one, let it be remembered, with his traditions, with his prejudices. In each of these conflicting antagonistic elements, however, there is a common spot of patriotism, and the only true policy is that which reaches that common patriotism and makes it vibrate in all toward common ends and common aspirations. #Quote by Wilfrid Laurier
Catholic Priest quotes by Benedict Groeschel
#49. They said I would never live. I lived. They said I would never think. I think. They said I would never walk. I walked. They said I would never dance, but I never danced anyway. #Quote by Benedict Groeschel
Catholic Priest quotes by Mortimer J. Adler
#50. The characteristics of this kind of reading are perhaps summed up in the word "orthodox," which is almost always applicable. The word comes from two Greek roots, meaning "right opinion." These are books for which there is one and only one right reading; any other reading or interpretation is fraught with peril, from the loss of an "A" to the damnation of one's soul. This characteristic carries with it an obligation. The faithful reader of a canonical book is obliged to make sense out of it and to find it true in one or another sense of "true." If he cannot do this by himself, he is obliged to go to someone who can. This may be a priest or a rabbi, or it may be his superior in the party hierarchy, or it may be his professor. In any case, he is obliged to accept the resolution of his problem that is offered him. He reads essentially without freedom; but in return for this he gains a kind of satisfaction that is possibly never obtained when reading other books. #Quote by Mortimer J. Adler
Catholic Priest quotes by Robert D. Crassweller
#51. Among the conclusions that emerge from this combination of qualities is the fact that in no sense was Trujillo a man of revolutionary aspiration or tendency. He did not wish to overthrow the system of government developed by Heureaux; he merely wanted to inherit it. He did not want to pull down or overturn; he preferred to extend and build. But above all, and without limit, he wanted to dominate. He embodied in every one of his attitudes the view that Macaulay attributed to Henry VIII in respect to the Roman Catholic faith: 'an orthodox Catholic except that he chose to be his own Pope. #Quote by Robert D. Crassweller
Catholic Priest quotes by Anonymous
#52. Amaziah, the high priest, for it is, after all, the selfish religious establishment which has led the people into this institutionalized and meaningless form of religion. #Quote by Anonymous
Catholic Priest quotes by Thomas More
#53. They have had great disputes among themselves, whether one chosen by them to be a priest would not be thereby qualified to do all the things that belong to that character, even though he had no authority derived from the Pope, #Quote by Thomas More
Catholic Priest quotes by B. J. Daniels
#54. The woman could get a confession faster than a priest. #Quote by B. J. Daniels
Catholic Priest quotes by Sarah Holman
#55. I understand that if you focus on what is wrong in your life, that is all you will see." Marian put her hands on Alditha's shoulders. "But if you open your eyes, you will see all the good gifts God has given you. If you continue to see only the bad, you will become bitter and angry. If you decide to see what is good, you will go back to being the smiling girl I grew up with and loved." Alditha swallowed hard. The words of the priest came to her. "This life, though hard, is a gift. Sometimes even I do not understand all of His ways, but I will tell you this; he loves you, and everything he does or does not do is for your good. You simply have to have faith to see it that way. #Quote by Sarah Holman
Catholic Priest quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#56. Sins are indispensable to every society organized on an ecclesiastical basis; they are the only reliable weapons of power; the priest lives upon sins; it is necessary to him that there be sinning. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Catholic Priest quotes by Adriana Renescu
#57. (...)'Of all the human body parts, the tongue is the most dangerous to one's soul and well being', to which quote, the priest would add, 'And to one's survival in this shitty world.' He would elaborate, 'Silence can hide both ignorance and knowledge; the second is the more dangerous. #Quote by Adriana Renescu
Catholic Priest quotes by Mark Foley
#58. By offering an education centered on values, the faculty in Catholic schools can create an interactive setting between parents and students that is geared toward long-term healthy character and scholastic development for all enrolled children. #Quote by Mark Foley
Catholic Priest quotes by Dan Simmons
#59. Without conscious thought I stepped behind the altar, raised my arms, and began the celebration of the Eucharist. There was no sense of parody or melodrama in this act, no symbolism or hidden intention; it was merely the automatic reaction of a priest who had said Mass almost daily for more than forty-six years of his life and who now faced the prospect of never again participating in the reassuring ritual of that celebration. It #Quote by Dan Simmons
Catholic Priest quotes by Antony Gormley
#60. I was educated by monks - I thank them dearly for the education they gave me, but I am no longer a Catholic. #Quote by Antony Gormley
Catholic Priest quotes by Georges Lemaitre
#61. Should a priest reject relativity because it contains no authoritative exposition on the doctrine of the Trinity? Once you realize that the Bible does not purport to be a textbook of science, the old controversy between religion and science vanishes ... The doctrine of the Trinity is much more abstruse than anything in relativity or quantum mechanics; but, being necessary for salvation, the doctrine is stated in the Bible. If the theory of relativity had also been necessary for salvation, it would have been revealed to Saint Paul or to Moses. #Quote by Georges Lemaitre
Catholic Priest quotes by John Ruskin
#62. No lying knight or lying priest ever prospered in any age, but especially not in the dark ones. Men prospered then only in following an openly declared purpose, and preaching candidly beloved and trusted creeds. #Quote by John Ruskin
