Pope Pius IX, Vatican I, 1870: “… no one can ‘assent to the preaching of the Gospel,’ as he must to attain salvation, without the illumination and inspiration of the Holy Spirit, who gives to all a sweetness in consenting to and believing the truth.” (Denz. 1791

I love that linking of "sweetness" with the Holy Spirit and truth. Sweet, indeed.

Pope Leo XIII (1885): “…Catholic faith cannot be reconciled with opinions verging on naturalism or rationalism, the essence of which is utterly to do away with Christian institutions and to install in society the supremacy of man to the exclusion of God.” (Immortale Dei #47)

>4 Joansknight:

The good pope is, I think, reinforcing the mystic tradition that God cannot be known by rational means alone. Knowing God is deeper than intellectual and rational assertions. Indeed we experience a relationship with God rather than "believe" in an intellectual concept called "God".

Pope Julius III, Council of Trent (1551): “If anyone denies that in the sacrament of the most holy Eucharist there are truly, really, and substantially contained the body and blood together with the soul and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, and therefore the whole Christ, but shall say that He is in it as by a sign or figure, let him be anathema.” (Can. 1 on the Eucharist)

Indeed. I'm sorry once again for your loss, and I can well believe that your relationship with God has evolved. My thoughts and prayers remain with you.

The crosses with which our path through life is strewn associate us with Jesus in the mystery of His crucifixion.

- St. John Eudes (1601-1680)

Hence, that meaning of the sacred dogmata is ever to be maintained which has once been declared by Holy Mother Church, and there must never be an abandonment of this sense under the pretext or in the name of a more profound understanding.... If anyone says that it is possible that at some given time, given the advancement of knowledge, a sense may be assigned to the dogmata propounded by the Church which is different from that which the Church has always understood and understands: let him be anathema.

- Vatican Council

>9 Joansknight: My adult faith, and relationship with God, was, I believe, nudged by my late husband. He appeared in a couple of dreams that had very clear messages. And that love between us tugged the barriers between this world and infinity slightly out of the way, placing me more squarely in the way of the light of God.

It's not scripture, but uses scriptural language:

"I will make my face to shine upon you."
