Church Quotes

I obey the Commandments, the sensible ones. Where they dont know what theyre talking about I ignore them. I keep thinking about the story of the two old women in church listening to the priest discoursing on the dynamics of the married state. At the end of the sermon one turns to the other and says, I wish I knew as little about it as he does.

Donald Barthelme

We do not seek a Christ whom we have invented, for only in the real communion of the Church do we encounter the real Christ.

Pope Benedict XVI

Do what Jesus says,... what he commands through his ministers who are in the Church [see 1 Cor 6:4]. Be subject to his vicars, your leaders, not only those who are gentle and kind, but even those who are overbearing.

St. Bernard of Clairvaux

The church stands that it may be battered, but the fists that batter know their own impotence.

Anthony Burgess

PC is low, low church it is the lowest common denomination.

Martin Amis

The emperor is in the Church, not above the Church.

Saint Ambrose

All admit that indulgences have some value; for it would be blasphemy to say that the Church does anything in vain.

Saint Thomas Aquinas

In this one man, the whole Church has been assumed by the Word.

St. Augustine of Hippo

Certainly He says this for me, for thee, for this other man, since He bears His body, the Church. Unless you imagine, brethren, that when He said: My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass away from Me (Matt. 26:39), it was the Lord that feared to die. . . . But Paul longed to die, that he might be with Christ. What? The Apostle desires to die, and Christ Himself should fear death? What can this mean, except that He bore our infirmity in Himself, and uttered these words for those who are in His body and still fear death? It is from these that the voice came; it was the voice of His members, not of the Head. When He said, My soul is sorrowful unto death (Matt. 26:38), He manifested Himself in thee, and thee in Himself. And when He said, My God, my God, why has Thou forsaken Me? (Matt. 27:46), the words He uttered on the cross were not His own, but ours.

St. Augustine of Hippo

"Magna Carta is the Law: Let the King look out." So it has always been with tyrants among our own people: when the King was tyrant, let him look out. And it has always been the same, and will be the same, whether the tyrant be the Barons, whether the tyrant be the Church, whether he be demagogue or dictator let them look out.

Stanley Baldwin, 1st Earl Baldwin of Bewdley

I'm known for snatching purses, and bombing churches, I get more pussy by accident than most niggas get on purpose.

Lamont Coleman

How much filth there is in the Church, even among those who, in the priesthood, should belong entirely to Him. How much pride, how much self-sufficiency.

Pope Benedict XVI

The fact that the church is convinced of not having the right to confer priestly ordination on women is now considered by some as irreconcilable with the European Constitution.

Pope Benedict XVI

The Labour Party's never been a socialist party, but it's always had socialists in it, just as there are some Christians in the Church, it's an exact parallel.

Anthony Neil Wedgwood Benn

To support those of your rights authorized by Heaven, destroy everything rather than yield; that is the spirit of the Church.

Nicolas Boileau-Despraux

As all who come into the country must obey the King, so all who come into an university must be of the Church.

James Boswell
