Pope St. Gregory VII (1082): “Do not wonder, dearest brothers, if the world hates you, for we ourselves also provoke it against us when we are resolutely opposed to its desire and condemn its works. For what wonder is it if the princes of this world and the powerful of this age hate us… for shunning their depravities…”
St. Robert Bellarmine on the relations in the Trinity: “Some compare the Father to a fountain, who gives and does not receive; the Son to a river, who receives and gives; the Holy Spirit to a lake, who receives and does not divert the water elsewhere.” (De Christo, Book II, Chap. 27)
