The Law of Old could only signify and foretell the grace in the bosom of the Father that was to be conferred unto sanctification by the Passion of the Incarnate Logos.

The apparently rational proposition of Deism is fundamentally opposed to the simple and necessary philosophical principle of a real distinction between act and potency. Deism may account for a being's production but not its conservation in being. Without the latter, all logical force of the former is incoherent.

A faithful and fruitful approach to evangelization is to bring man to his knees. It appears that the method of the current Sovereign Pontiff is to drag God to His knees in the interests of accommodation to obstinate man. The majesty of God is contemptible to the sinner who wishes to remain so, we must therefore dethrone our Lord to placate our bristling conscience.
The Divine Beauty shines most perfectly and sublimely in the Blessed Trinity, which is the highest development of Divine perfection; in It we can easily detect all the elements of beauty, viz, unity and multiplicity, the splendour of perfection and life, the resemblance of the image to the ideal or prototype. In fact, there is no greater unity in multiplicity than the perfect identity of the Three Divine Persons; no more perfect unfolding of essential perfection and life than the trinity fecundity in God, wherein the whole Divine Essence is communicated - the whole wisdom of the Father uttered in His Word, the whole love of the Father and the Son poured forth in the Holy Ghost; and there is no greater resemblance of any image to its prototype, than the resemblance of the Divine Word to the Eternal Father. By appropriation, beauty is especially attributed to God the Son, because He is the splendour of the glory of the Father, the perfect expression of the Divine perfection.''

A multitude of natural acts, whether they form empires or shake them, whether they produce fruit of enduring and laudable proportions or whether they obtain the progression of all mankind are to be regarded as straw in comparison with one supernatural act of Faith.
