Let no man seek his own…

…but every man another’s.
(1 Corinthians 10:24)

That is the principle of the saints of God, both in times past and at the present time, from all ages to the end of the world. That is the principle of all true social structure. On that principle can be founded a human society that is the most perfect, the most pleasing to God and the happiest. It is a saving principle in every kind of difficulty that people today encounter, against which they struggle without victory and without hope.

A holy soul cares for his neighbor, either close at hand or far away.

He cares where the homeless will spend the night, how the hungry will be fed, with what the naked will be clothed.

He cares and he prays for the salvation of his neighbors; that their hearts may be filled with love towards God, that their minds may be directed towards God, that the wicked may turn from the paths of wickedness, that the hesitant may be confirmed in the Faith, that the firm may persevere, that the departed may behold the Face of God, that the living may be written in the book of Life in the Kingdom of Light.

Three Mysteries…

…One Answer—Mashíach

A profound essay on what I call
"the triple mystery of the pairs"…
Christ as God-Man,
Marriage as Man-Woman,
Church as Jew-Gentile.

I invite anyone who visits my blog to click on the link and read it.
I have never read anything as comprehensive yet brief in modern writers, only in the early Church fathers.

Can it be that when one accepts nothing but the Word of God for Truth, the Holy Spirit steps in with teaching that unifies all minds in the Mind of Christ?

How could I have forgotten…

…to bring to remembrance this event
of Forty Years ago?

Follow the link to a post I just put up today but pre-dated to the anniversary, even to the minute.
