Review: 

This inexpensive paperback offers a wide variety of memorable Catholic quotations from both ancient and modern sources. The book is organized according to subject. Here are just a few: Abortion, Art, Baptism, Blessed Sacrament, Conscience, Devil, Divine Mercy, Dying Words, Family, Fasting, Free Will, Generosity, Grace, Guardian Angel, Incarnation, Justice, Marriage, Our Lady, Prayer, Priesthood, Rosary, Sin, Suffering, Transubstantiation, Virtue and Vocation. Authors quoted in this work include: St. Augustine, Pope John Paul II, Msgr. Robert Hugh Benson, St. Josemaria Escriva, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. John of the Cross, G. K. Chesterton, Charles P�guy, St. Ignatius Loyola and St. Padre Pio. There are a few authors that might raise a few eyebrows, but I didn't find anything off-base. I've really enjoyed having this around the house to find some inspiration, highlight an idea when writing to someone or complete a special project (I just made a plaque for my daughter's room with a quote from St. Francis that I found in this book).
