Saint John Paul the Great Quote on Purpose of Freedom

When freedom does not have a purpose, when it does not wish to know anything about the rule of law engraved in the hearts of men and women, when it does not listen to the voice of conscience, it turns against humanity and society.

-St. John Paul the Great

“Baptism is for the captives the ransom price, the remission of debts, the death of sin, the regeneration of the soul, a shining garment, an unbreakable seal, the vehicle to heaven, the public agent of the Kindgdom, the gift of adoption.”

-St. Basil (330-379) Homiliae, 13, 5
