    The following is a list of some very important quotes that every Catholic should know. There is so much misinformation these days that these little snippets will serve as a welcome and refreshing "reality check" against the errors and problems of our times.

    •"It is impious to say, 'I respect every religion.' This is as much as to say: I respect the devil as much as God, vice as much as virtue, falsehood as much as truth, dishonesty as much as honesty, Hell as much as Heaven."
    --Fr. Michael Müller, The Church and Her Enemies (source here)


    •"The declared enemies of God and His Church, heretics and schismatics, must be criticized as much as possible, as long as truth is not denied. It is a work of charity to shout: 'Here is the wolf!' when it enters the flock or anywhere else.
    --St. Francis de Sales, Introduction to the Devout Life, Part III, Chapter 29
     
    •"In the Third Secret [of Fatima] it is foretold, among other things, that the great apostasy in the Church will begin at the top."
    --Mario L. Ciappi, Novus Ordo cardinal and household theologian to John Paul II; quoted in The Devil's Final Battle, p. 33
     
    •"Protestants don't accept the Second Vatican Council, either."
    --Fr. Franz Schmidberger, SSPX, Interview September 2012, in response to "Archbishop" Gerhard Muller's stubborn resistance to the SSPX while at the same time maintaining the most friendly ecumenical relations and frequent common prayer with Protestants


    •"Compromise with those not of the Faith is at all times the deadliest of errors. Here precisely is the danger of religious indifferentism. Here is the danger of socialism. Here is the danger of mixed marriages. Here is the danger of seeking to keep at all costs the golden opinion of the world and fearing its contempt. Here is the danger of education in non-Catholic schools, no matter how innocent they may seem to be."
    --Fr. Joseph Husslein, The Catholic's Work in the World (Imprimatur 1917), pp. 93-94


    •"The Church will be punished because the majority of her members, high and low, will become so perverted. The Church will sink deeper and deeper until she will at last seem to be extinguished, and the succession of Peter and the other Apostles to have expired. But, after this, she will be victoriously exalted in the sight of all doubters."
    --St. Nicholas of Flue, in Catholic Prophecy, edited by Yves Dupont, p. 30
     
    •"In our time more than ever before, the chief strength of the wicked, lies in the cowardice and weakness of good men... All the strength of Satan’s reign is due to the easy-going weakness of Catholics. Oh! if I might ask the Divine Redeemer, as the prophet Zachary did in spirit: What are those wounds in the midst of Thy hands? The answer would not be doubtful: With these was I wounded in the house of them that loved Me. I was wounded by My friends, who did nothing to defend Me, and who, on every occasion, made themselves the accomplices of My adversaries. And this reproach can be levelled at the weak and timid Catholics of all countries."
    --Pope St. Pius X, Discourse at the Beatification of St. Joan of Arc, Dec. 13, 1908
     
    •"The apostles and their successors are God's vicars in governing the Church which is built on faith and the sacraments of faith. Wherefore, just as they may not institute another Church, so neither may they deliver another faith, nor institute other sacraments."
    --St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, III, 64, ad. 3
     
    •"I hear around me reformers who want to dismantle the Holy Sanctuary, destroy the universal flame of the Church, to discard all her adornments, and smite her with remorse for her historic past."
    --Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli, later Pope Pius XII, to Count Enrico P. Galeazzi
     
    •"Pope Gelasius in his ninth letter (chap. 26) to the bishops of Lucania condemned the evil practice which had been introduced of women serving the priest at the celebration of Mass. Since this abuse had spread to the Greeks, Innocent IV strictly forbade it in his letter to the bishop of Tusculum: 'Women should not dare to serve at the altar; they should be altogether refused this ministry.' We too have forbidden this practice in the same words...."
    --Pope Benedict XIV, Encyclical Allatae Sunt, July 26, 1755
     
    •"On December 8, 1869, the International Congress of Freemasons imposed it as a duty on all its members to do all in their power to wipe out Catholicity from the face of the earth. Cremation was proposed as a suitable means to this end, since it was calculated to gradually undermine the faith of the people in 'the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.'"
    --Fr. John Laux, Catholic Morality (Imprimatur 1932), p. 106
     
    •"It is impossible to approve in Catholic publications a style inspired by unsound novelty which seems to deride the piety of the faithful and dwells on the introduction of a new order of Christian life, on new directions of the Church, on new aspirations of the modern soul, on a new social vocation of the clergy, on a new Christian civilization, and many other things of the same kind."
    --Pope Leo XIII, Instruction to the Sacred Congregation of Extraordinary Ecclesiastical Affairs, January 27, 1902; quoted by Pope St. Pius X in Pascendi Dominici Gregis, par. 55, 1907
     
    •"...the great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer. [...] Indeed, the true friends of the people are neither revolutionaries, nor innovators: they are traditionalists."
    --Pope Saint Pius X, Letter "Our Apostolic Mandate" to the French Episcopate, 1910
     
    •"When other Christian bodies are licensing as preachers young men who have abandoned the foundations of Christian belief, the Church would rather face the threatened defection of thousands of minds reputed brilliant or learned, than sacrifice one iota of the Truth confided to her by her Founder."
    --America Magazine, July 24, 1909, p. 110
     
    •"The Son of Man, when He cometh, shall He find, think you, faith on earth?"
    --the Blessed Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 18:8)
    "I receive Thee, redeeming Prince of my soul. Out of love for Thee have I studied, watched through many nights, and exerted myself: Thee did I preach and teach. I have never said aught against Thee. Nor do I persist stubbornly in my views. If I have ever expressed myself erroneously on this Sacrament, I submit to the judgement of the Holy Roman Church, in obedience of which I now part from this world." Saint Thomas Aquinas the greatest Doctor of the Church
