  • Ecclesiastes chapter 1 verses 9 and 10

    King Solomon:
    Quote
    What is it that hath been? the same thing that shall be. What is it that hath been done? the same that shall be done. [10] Nothing under the sun is new, neither is any man able to say: Behold this is new: for it hath already gone before in the ages that were before us.

  • "For the lord searches all hearts, and understands all the thougts of minds. If you seek Him, you shall find Him, but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever" (Chronicles 28:9).

    "Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, you shall not have life in you." (John 6:54.)

     “For this was I born, and for this came I into the world, that I should give testimony to the truth: every one who is of the truth, heareth my voice. (John 18:37).

     "If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated me before you.  If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you." (John 15:18-19)
    If anyone says that true and natural water is not necessary for baptism and thus twists into some metaphor the words of our Lord Jesus Christ" Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit" (Jn 3:5) let him be anathema.

  • The entire story of the Prodigal Son.
    "Kindness is for fools! They [modernists] want to be treated with oil, soap, and caresses, but they ought to be beaten with fists. In a duel, you don't count or measure the blows, you strike as you can. War is not made with charity. It is a struggle, a duel." -- Pope St. Pius X

    Ecclesiastes chapter 1 verses 9 and 10

    King Solomon:

    What is it that hath been? the same thing that shall be. What is it that hath been done? the same that shall be done. [10] Nothing under the sun is new, neither is any man able to say: Behold this is new: for it hath already gone before in the ages that were before us.


    It's funny you bring this up, as it's the first verse that came to mind.  It's wide applicability causes it to.  I might add, from the same book, chapter three:

    " [1] All things have their season, and in their times all things pass under heaven. [2] A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted. [3] A time to kill, and a time to heal. A time to destroy, and a time to build. [4] A time to weep, and a time to laugh. A time to mourn, and a time to dance. [5] A time to scatter stones, and a time to gather. A time to embrace, and a time to be far from embraces.

    [6] A time to get, and a time to lose. A time to keep, and a time to cast away. [7] A time to rend, and a time to sew. A time to keep silence, and a time to speak. [8] A time of love, and a time of hatred. A time of war, and a time of peace. [9] What hath man more of his labour? [10] I have seen the trouble, which God hath given the sons of men to be exercised in it.

    [11] He hath made all things good in their time, and hath delivered the world to their consideration, so that man cannot find out the work which God hath made from the beginning to the end."

    A lesson in the virtue of prudence.

  • I like the verse where Jesus made a whip and he used it.

    I think every chapel should have a whip hanging on the wall somewhere.

  • Ecclesiasticus 24:24-31 ever since learning from St. Alphonsus' The Glories of Mary, that this is one of many Scripture about Our Blessed Mother.


    I am the mother of fair love, and of fear, and of knowledge, and of holy hope.  In me is all grace of the way and of the truth, in me is all hope of life and of virtue.

     Come over to me, all ye that desire me, and be filled with my fruits.  For my spirit is sweet above honey, and my inheritance above honey and the honeycomb.  My memory is unto everlasting generations.  They that eat me, shall yet hunger: and they that drink me, shall yet thirst.  He that hearkeneth to me, shall not be confounded: and they that work by me, shall not sin.

    They that explain me shall have life everlasting.
    For a small gain they travel far; for eternal life many will scarcely lift a foot from the ground. - Thomas A Kempis

    Soulguard, I needed a translation from my daughter for the above bolded words!  :confused1: :king:

    Well, since some of us have many "favorites", The Canticles is one of mine too. Is there any verse in particular that stands out above the rest?

    These things I have spoken to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you shall have distress. But have confidence. I have overcome the world.
    Mother of God, pray for us sinners.

  •  :dancing-banana:St. John 8:32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
     St. Francis Xavier threw a Crucifix into the sea, at once calming the waves.  Upon reaching the shore, the Crucifix was returned to him by a crab with a curious cross pattern on its shell.
