St. Alphonsus (c. 1760): “My brother, if you wish to live well, endeavor to live during the remainder of your life in the presence of death. ‘O death, thy judgment is good’ (Eccl. xli. 3). Oh, how truly does he judge of things, and how well does he regulate his actions, who judges and regulates them with death before his eyes! The remembrance of death makes us lose all affection for the things of this life.” (Preparation For Death, pp. 26-27)
Pope Pius XI (1928) on the unity of the Church: “… that unity can only arise from one teaching authority, one law of belief and one faith of Christians.” (Mortalium Animos #9)
