REV. FREDERICK WILLIAM FABER
English priest and writer
(1814 - 1863)

Every hour comes with some little fagot of God's will fastened upon its back.
      - [Today]

Faith is letting down our nets into the untransparent deeps, at the Divine command, not knowing what we shall take.
      - [Faith]

Good is that darkening of our lives,
  Which only God can brighten;
    But better still that hopeless load,
      Which none but God can lighten.
      - [Grief]

Holiness is an unselfing of ourselves.
      - [Holiness]

I find great numbers of moderately good people who think it fine to talk scandal. They regard it as a sort of evidence of their own goodness.
      - [Scandal]

Is the scrupulous attention I am paying to the government of my tongue at all proportioned to that tremendous truth revealed through St. James, that if I do not bridle my tongue, all my religion is vain?
      - [Evil]

Kind words are the music of the world.
      - [Kindness]

Kindness has converted more sinners than either zeal, eloquence, or learning.
      - [Kindness]

Many there are who, while they bear the name of Christians, are totally unacquainted with the power of their divine religion. But for their crimes the Gospel is in no wise answerable. Christianity is with them a geographical, not a descriptive, appellation.
      - [Christian]

Now are the days, of humblest prayer,
  When consciences to God lie bare,
    And mercy most delights to spare.
      Oh hearken when we cry.
        Now is the season, wisely long,
          Of sadder thought and graver song,
            When ailing souls grow well and strong.
              Oh hearken when we cry.
                The feast of penance! Oh so bright,
                  With true conversion's heavenly light,
                    Like sunrise after stormy night!
                      Oh hearken when we cry.
                        Oh happy time of blessed tears,
                          Of surer hopes, of chast'ning fears,
                            Undoing all our evil years.
                              Oh hearken when we cry.
                                Chastise us with Thy fear;
                                  Yet, Father! in the multitude
                                    Of Thy compassions, hear!
      - [Lent]

Ye Heavens, how sang they in your courts,
  How sang the angelic choir that day,
    When from his tomb the imprisoned God,
      Like the strong sunrise, broke away?
      - Jesus Risen [Easter]

For right is right, since God is God,
  And right the day must win;
    To doubt would be disloyalty,
      To falter would be sin.
      - The Right Must Win (st. 18) [Right]

See! he sinks
  Without a word; and his ensanguined bier
    Is vacant in the west, while far and near
      Behold! each coward shadow eastward shrinks,
        Thou dost not strive, O sun, nor dost thou cry
          Amid thy cloud-built streets.
      - The Rosary and Other Poems--On the Ramparts at Angouleme
        [Sunset]

Labour itself is but a sorrowful song,
  The protest of the weak against the strong.
      - The Sorrowful World [Labor]

Small things are best:
  Grief and unrest
    To rank and wealth are given;
      But little things
        On little wings
          Bear little souls to Heaven.
      - Written in a Little Lady's Little Album
        [Trifles]
