Thought for the Day – 8 March – Knowledge and Goodness

Thought for the Day – 8 March – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

Knowledge and Goodness

“The supremacy of goodness over knowledge, has to be admitted in practice, as well as in theory.
It is useless and even harmful, for us to be courageous, if we not also good.
Very often, knowledge is like a weapon in the hands of a child.
If the child is naughty or careless, he can do a great deal of damage with his weapon.
Before everything else, we must be good.
We must have that Christian goodness which embraces all the virtues and culminates in the love of God and of our neighbour.
Once we have acquired this goodness, science will benefit by it.

It will become a powerful means of enlightenment, rather than of destruction.
It will no longer be mere knowledge; it will be wisdom.
In will teach us how to live and show us our proper destination.
In short, it will become an instrument of virtue, which will contribute enormously to the welfare of the human race
.”

Antonio Cardinal Bacci

Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
