What is Tiny Little Stones?

This blog is named after the "five smooth stones" used by David to slay Goliath. As a small stone was used to slay a giant warrior, so David's Psalms have been used to slay spiritual enemies. Likewise, the sayings collected here, it is hoped, will be useful by those who ponder them to battle the passions, thoughts, and compulsions that afflict all humankind.

Tiny Little Stones is a collection of short sayings from the Church's holy people. They are collected for their practical value. Those who have gone before us and have been victorious in the spiritual battle have much to teach those with ears to hear, yet are still subject to their desires and selfishness. By the example, words, and continuing intercession of the saints, perhaps some of us will start, a little, to repent.
