A Quote by Bishop Fulton John Sheen on judgement

When our conscience bothers us, whether we admit it or not, we often try to justify it by correcting others, or by finding fault with them.  The readiness to believe evil about others is in large part ammunition for a thousand scandals in our own hearts.

A Quote by Bishop Fulton John Sheen on inferiority

God has given different gifts to different people. There is no basis for feeling inferior to another who has a different gift. Once it is realized that we shall be judged by the gift we have received, rather than the gift we have not, one is completely delivered from a false sense of inferiority.
