Thought For The Day

Quote #1

“Instead of seeming to impose new obligations, they should appear as people who wish to share their joy, who point to a horizon of beauty and who invite others to a delicious banquet. It is not through proselytizing that the Church grows, but by attraction.” (Pope Francis)

Quote #2

“The two biggest curses of humanity have been proselytizing religions and wars, and they have often been intertwined.” (Rodrigue Tremblay)

Quote #3

“The proselytizing fanatic strengthens his own faith by converting others. The creed whose legitimacy is most easily challenged is likely to develop the strongest proselytizing impulse.” (Eric Hoffer)

Bonus Quote

“Proselytizing or expansionist ideologies, such as communism, fascism, colonialism, Christianism, Islamism, and Zionism, are powerful seeds of war. The more so, it seems, when one relies on the exhortations of a self-serving “holy” book. The first three ideologies nearly destroy the planet in the 20th century, while the last three threaten to do the same in the 21st century.” (Rodrigue Tremblay)

Peace, love, light, and joy,
