Great Orators of the Order of Friars Preachers

"A man who governs his passions is master of the world. We must either rule them, or be ruled by them." Saint Dominic

"How ... strongly should we be drawn to Christ if we find our pleasure in truth, happiness, justice, eternal life: all of which Christ is!" Saint Thomas Aquinas

"Regard yourself as more vile and miserable in the sight of God because of your faults than any sinner whatsoever, no matter what his sins." Saint Vincent Ferrer

"The Glorious Virgin the blessed fruit of her womb has saved a world condemned by the fall of our first parents." Pope Saint Pius V

"God is the proper name of Truth, as Truth is the abstract name of God." Lacordaire

"People who say homosexuals are sick are sick themselves. ... Abortion, just like same-sex marriage, has served us as subterfuge to tell ourselves that we in the Church have our morals." Bishop Raúl Vera
