Real Christianity

“You cannot claim to worship Jesus in the Tabernacle, if you do not pity Jesus in the slums. . . It is folly — it is madness — to suppose that you can worship Jesus in the Sacraments and Jesus on the throne of glory, when you are sweating him in the souls and bodies of his children.”

Bishop Frank Weston at the 1923 Anglo-Catholic Congress

From the “Tradtional Values” section of their website

St. John Chrysostom:
“The desire to rule is the mother of all heresies.”

St. Ambrose on private property (4th Century):
“How far will your mad lusts take you, ye rich people, till you dwell alone on the earth? Why do you at once turn nature out of doors, and claim the possession of her for your own selves? The land was made for all; why do you rich men claim it as your private property?”

“Nature produced common property. Robbery made private property.”

Cyprian of Carthage on war (3rd Century):
“The world is going mad in mutual bloodshed. And murder, which is considered a crime when people commit it singly, is transformed into a virtue when they do it en masse. The offenders acquire impunity by increasing their ravaging.”
