Devil - Orvietto

The Maciel case requires us to ask the question of Evil. Our time prevents rubbing it. What do we know of the work of the devil and what can we do to protect ourselves ? After attempting to overshadow the good of life, is it any wonder that evil shows itself in the open ? The works of the devil are endless, but the & rsquo; Holy Spirit can all, including transforming.

You had to have the eloquence of the favorite writer of the Pope1 to affirm : "There is only sadness, that not to be holy ". This heady question of holiness always comes as a season that does not pass. There are many things we can get rid, but never the question of holiness in part. It is consubstantial with us. As soon as we see or seeing something just or unjust, something under the good or evil, we walk on the path of holiness. Whether to it or against it. It takes a long time to realize how the issue of holiness is we consubstantial. We are holy, we are a temple, we left the church that is holy, we are in the image of God who is holy, and yet we ébrouons, we are falling, we struggle, we strive… So little results for so many promises. This is the holy condition application amount of effort and gives few visible results.

News of humility

Human vision of humility is the image of the human vision of love, scaled down. Humility must exercise his teaching at all times and in all places. Humility does not accept that we choose whether to practice. Humility and application availability infinite and endless vigilance. She asks, a term that has almost disappeared from our modern language, docility. Docility has long been the cornerstone of education. Docility locked and guided the will by forcing her to be applied with discernment and to the cause of life. The character of obedience requires a hard drive, as humility. Docility is the lieutenant of humility. It is also his stewardship, which is not incompatible with the rank of junior officer.

Docility is often the first step to access availability and vigilance. be docile forces to be alert. be docile makes life so much. be docile today is the first reaction to the dictatorship of the modern world. Because that docility prevents claim and condemns narcissism. It is not picture how the docility can accomplish great things.

To access humility, must deny the ego. What echo can such sentences have in our time ? Deny the ego ? Or, consider the ego to better humiliate ? What madness ? How to say in our time being humbled is the safest way to humility ? I remember Dolto studies on this topic. Far from the image conveyed by his sycophants on Dolto. Dolto praising some forms of humiliation to achieve a state of "higher", a state where being detaches from its image ; where being dominated and secures its image. And of course, Dolto praised this form of education for children. What was the dunce cap ? What was the corner ? These practices of another age as it looks today, Were not primarily an opportunity for the child to repent, and, repent against other ? There is no humiliation experienced in solitude. The ego subsides when he confronts privacy.
"I thank God that I never had, because of my science, the top of my master chair, at no time in my professorial activity, vain pride movement that has raised my soul from the humility seat. "The surest way to holiness, that is to say, the surest path to the state that we are required by God, is humility. The one who speaks these words in his life showed a natural humility. One day of the year 1257, while his celebrity might swell with pride, St. Thomas Aquinas, So brother Thomas, is visiting a monastery in Bologna. It makes a few services. He does not hesitate to do all kinds of tasks. He is available ; there is a liberation of the soul to be available, to bathe in docility. A religious passage in the monastery seen and ordered him to follow. "The prior request you to follow me". Brother Thomas runs. It harnesses religious affairs, some in the cart he starts hanging, the rest on his back. Brother Thomas is good constitution, but the load turns out well though heavy. This task. The Prior said : "Take the first brother will find you". Brother Thomas appeared in religious as the right person to help. Religious pressed, he scolds brother Thomas who barely any wear and advance at a safe speed. Brother Thomas shows docility in the effort, but it also shows great docility face of religious criticism. In the city, the religious scene rabrouant brother is comedian. People make fun of this caravan on its way. But suddenly, a murmur runs through the crowd. It spreads like wildfire. The whisper is a name. A bourgeois lunges educate the religious. The brother is that you abuse the… Religious stiffened a little more, if it was possible. He dares not return. He does not dare to face his victim. The brother of Thomas shade overlooking, but that shadow does not make sense, brother Thomas overlooks person by his shadow. Brother Thomas is smiling at the rear, almost placid, he had time to draw breath. The religious approaches him and asks him to forgive her, he continues to shake the air with his arms, but this time to create an intimacy with brother Thomas, when previously he had been constantly ostensibly show the gap between him and this small requirement brother. He approaches him, shoulder touch him, everyone can see that there is no animosity between them, he breathes rather a form of collusion between them. brother Thomas, nothing dupe, actor of all, responds to the religious who had slipped him he should have declared his identity, and instruct its quality, there was no question of disobeying the prior. As the crowd kept murmuring against religious, brother Thomas claimed he was there voluntarily, he accepted the charge without grumbling, there was there no reason to take against anyone, that obedience was the sine qua non of faith. Obey his prior, obey love for God. Nothing that costs way out of this ; the way of God's love.
The love of God makes sense in the obedience of man. That man come to depart from this soft law and nothing exists that the modern world. without docility, without humility. Without love.
