Feast of our dear “Little Therese”
“O Lord, Who said: Unless you become as little children, you shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, grant us, we beseech You, so to follow the footsteps of blessed Theresa, the Virgin, in humility and simplicity of heart that we may obtain everlasting rewards” (“Collect” of the Mass). Complicated souls have their heart drawn in varied directions. It is so as the heart is created for God and it will be “restless,” says St. Augustine, “until it rests in [Him].”
“To respond to ALL the love of Jesus,” according to our Little Therese,”she would like to do for Him what He did for her.” There is no rest for those who’d rather settle at less than that – resistant to the plain demands of the Truth, hard as it gets in making us ascend to the divine mindset and view, they resist then the standard of the Good Which the Truth could all but simply offer. These complicated ones of course would protest that they love God but they love Him according only to their own measure* – then have they yet to begin and still do not begin as yet; here it is true that ‘there is no forever.’
*Taught by the new ‘liturgical service’ (the so-called ‘ORDINARY Form’ fashioned by humanist-populist ‘sensibilities’ rather than by divine right against profanity and sacrilege, following the liturgical principle “lex orandi, lex credendi” (how one prays/worships manifests and professes what he believes).
“My chief desire through life has been to give pleasure to the good God… Since God is so generous to me, I want also to be generous to Him… I don’t remember refusing Him anything… He was asking from me.”
Vocation advertising by “New ‘Catholic disOrder” ‘religious’ communities now centers on themselves – on man; just as man (the people, for the truly rebel ecumenical ministers; the minister, for the people who has taken up again the accursed position of Miriam – the rebel sister of Moses) has supplanted God at His centrally exalted position: the ‘ORDINARY form!’ They project how ‘lucky’ they are – enjoying [g]od somewhere in the air and their pleasures, comforts and conveniences down here. Indeed many respond but they seek to find themselves!
