Does anyone know the poem that compares a house to our Catholic faith? The windows are the soul, the roof if this, the foundation is that, etc? If so, I would so appreciate some direction on where to find it!!!!


Thanks:) Sherri

Sherri, I think I have heard this poem before, it sounds very familiar. Let me look around and see if I can find it.

I found it! It's by St. Benard. Here it is if anyone is interested...


“The spiritual house of the soul is the gaining and living of virtue; for as a material house is built with much hard labor and rises little by little, by various stones and beams, so is the spiritual house built by various virtues, and by long labor and slow improvements.

Nice! I'm so glad you found it. I'm almost certain I have this in my RCIA folder that is currently MIA. How did you find it?
