St. Thomas Aquinas says: "Praise be to Jesus."
"The reason souls do not unite in the Truth is always the same - love of self above God and neighbor. This disordered self-love is always some form of pride - lust, anger, unforgiveness - anything that serves self above God and neighbor."
"Self-love, which carries the soul away from Holy Love, confuses the Truth through compromise. This is how sinful inclinations are fostered. This is why the world accepts such things as abortion and same-sex marriage. This is why those who do not accept compromise are persecuted."
"Make God and pleasing God number one in your lives. This is how you will be judged."
