Best Quotes about Churches
I'm a priest, not a priestess. Priestess implies mumbo jumbo and all sorts of pagan goings-on. Those who oppose us would love to call us priestesses. They can call us all the names in the world -- it's better than being invisible.
What makes a church great in the eyes of God? Participation, proclamation, preservation, and propagation. Every church ought to exhibit all four.
Hawkins, O. S.
Standards of conduct appropriate to civil society or the workings of a democracy cannot be purely and simply applied to the Church.
Ratzinger, Cardinal Joseph
I never weary of great churches. It is my favorite kind of mountain scenery. Mankind was never so happily inspired as when it made a cathedral.
Stevenson, Robert Louis
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
It is indolence... Indolence and love of ease; a want of all laudable ambition, of taste for good company, or of inclination to take the trouble of being agreeable, which make men clergymen. A clergyman has nothing to do but be slovenly and selfish; read the newspaper, watch the weather, and quarrel with his wife. His curate does all the work and the business of his own life is to dine.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
We praise Him, we bless Him, we adore Him, we glorify Him, and we wonder who is that baritone across the aisle and that pretty woman on our right who smells of apple blossoms. Our bowels stir and our cod itches and we amend our prayers for the spiritual life with the hope that it will not be too spiritual.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
Wherever we find the Word of God surely preached and heard, and the sacraments administered according to the institution of Christ, there, it is not to be doubted, is a church of God.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Mass ought to be in Latin, unless you could do it in Greek or Chinese. In fact, any abracadabra that no bloody member of the public or half-educated ape of a clargimint could think he understood.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
What is wrong with priests and popes is that instead of being apostles and saints, they are nothing but empirics who say I know instead of I am learning, and pray for credulity and inertia as wise men pray for skepticism and activity.
Shaw, George Bernard
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
An instinctive taste teaches men to build their churches with spire steeples which point as with a silent finger to the sky and stars.
Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
My own mind is my own church.
Those who marry God can become domesticated too -- it's just as hum-drum a marriage as all the others. The word Love means a formal touch of the lips as in the ceremony of the Mass, and Ave Marialike dearest is a phrase to open a letter. This marriage like the world's marriages was held together by habits and tastes shared in common between God and themselves -- it was God's taste to be worshipped and their taste to worship, but only at stated hours like a suburban embrace on a Saturday night.
The root of almost every schism and heresy from which the Christian Church has suffered, has been because of the effort of men to earn, rather than receive their salvation; and the reason preaching is so commonly ineffective is, that it often calls on people to work for God rather than letting God work through them.
Here, the churches seemed to shrink away into eroding corners. They seem to have ceased to be essential parts of American life. They no longer give life. It is the huge buildings of commerce and trade which now align the people to attention. These in their massive manner of steel and stone say, Come unto me all ye who labor, and we will give you work.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
The Christian church is a society of sinners. It is the only society in the world, membership in which is based upon the single qualification that the candidate shall be unworthy of membership.
Morrison, Charles C.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
The question confronting the Church today is not any longer whether the man in the street can grasp a religious message, but how to employ the communications media so as to let him have the full impact of the Gospel message.
John Paul II
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
I never saw, heard, nor read, that the clergy were beloved in any nation where Christianity was the religion of the country. Nothing can render them popular, but some degree of persecution.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
It is one of the ironies of the ministry that the very man who works in God's name is often hardest put to find time for God. The parents of Jesus lost Him at church, and they were not the last ones to lose Him there.
