Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ. -St. Jerome

While making progress in spiritual life, it becomes obvious that self-love is more harmful to a person than anything else. Normally in proportion to the love and affection you have for something, it will cling to you. If your love is pure, simple and well ordered, you will not be a slave to anything. Not to lose your freedom, avoid coveting and the desire to possess what is not essential. After achieving that spirit of freedom, we must consciously, deliberately, and with our whole heart, commit ourselves to the Lord. We become free from unnecessary cares. We must resign to the will of the Lord. The tendency to seek this or that, desire to be in this place or that place, to have more ease and pleasure, will not help one to be free from care. Some defect will be found in everything and everywhere someone will vex you. At this stage we see a tendency for the possession of earthly things which will not help. For spiritual progress one has to despise them and root out the desire for them from the heart. These include money, wealth, ambition for honor and empty praise, all of which will pass away with this world. If our hearts are not well founded, that is not founded in the Lord, when occasion comes we will change. For this very reason people walk away from faith with slight provocations. Their religious practices were not grounded in the Lord. They did not connect with Him. Hence they could not survive simple crisis and remain closer to the Lord.. We must constantly pray to cleanse ourselves with the grace of the Holy Spirit. We must pray for the grace to root out all vain care, anxiety, and desires for the perishable. We must pray for the heavenly wisdom to learn above all else to seek and find Him, to enjoy and love Him more than anything. We need special grace to avoid flatterer and to bear with those who disagree with us. This will help our spiritual journey on the right path. At this level we will not take to heart when someone talks badly about us or say unpleasant things to us. When we walk in the Spirit, we will remain silent in evil times and turn inwardly the Lord so that we will not be disturbed by human opinions and our peace will not depend on the words of men. We will find true peace and glory in the Lord. We realize that all unrest and distraction of the senses arise out of disorderly love and vain fear. Spirituality is not just a set of sentimental exercises. We all have to go through the purifying process in this life. We have to be cautious to avoid the tendency to seek human consolation. When we are troubled, when our hearts are not at rest, and when we are greatly afflicted by these present sufferings, we must fly to the Lord for comfort. Humbled and freed by Him, we will become patient. We will not be afraid however much we may be distressed. Instead of complaining and blaming others, we will pray with joy that thy will be done not mine. This is how we truly follow Jesus and identify with His sufferings for our salvation. Our sufferings become redemptive. We must train our children to grow with such devotional attitude every day. God bless you all.

Mientras progresamos en la vida espiritual, es evidente que el amor propio es ms perjudicial para una persona que cualquier otra cosa. Normalmente, en proporcin al amor y afecto que tiene por algo, se aferra a uno mismo. Si tu amor es puro, simple y bien ordenado, no sers esclavo de nada. No perder tu libertad, evitar la codicia y el deseo de poseer lo que no es esencial. Despus de lograr ese espritu de libertad, debemos conscientemente, deliberadamente y con todo nuestro corazn, comprometernos con el Seor. Nos libramos de los cuidados innecesarios. Debemos resignarnos a la voluntad del Seor. La tendencia a buscar esto o aquello, el deseo de estar en este lugar o ese lugar, de tener ms facilidad y placer, no ayudar a uno a estar libre de cuidado. Algn defecto se encontrar en todo y en todas partes alguien te molestar. En esta etapa vemos una tendencia a la posesin de cosas terrenales que no ayudar. Para el progreso espiritual uno tiene que despreciarlos y arraigar el deseo para ellos desde el corazn. Estos incluyen el dinero, la riqueza, la ambicin de honor y vana alabanza, todo lo cual pasar con este mundo. Si nuestros corazones no estn bien fundados, eso no est fundado en el Seor, cuando llegue la ocasin cambiaremos. Por esta misma razn la gente se aleja de la fe con ligeras provocaciones. Sus prcticas religiosas no estaban basadas en el Seor. No se conectaron con l. Por lo tanto, no podran sobrevivir crisis simples y permanecer ms cerca del Seor. Debemos orar constantemente para limpiarnos con la gracia del Espritu Santo. Debemos orar por la gracia para extirpar toda vana atencin, ansiedad y deseos de los perecederos. Debemos orar por la sabidura celestial para aprender sobre todo a buscarlo y encontrarlo, para disfrutarlo y amarlo ms que nada. Necesitamos una gracia especial para evitar el adulador y para soportar con aquellos que no estn de acuerdo con nosotros. Esto ayudar a nuestro viaje espiritual en el camino correcto. En este nivel no vamos a tomar a pecho cuando alguien habla mal de nosotros o decir cosas desagradables para nosotros. Cuando andamos en el Espritu, permaneceremos en silencio en tiempos malos y nos volveremos interiormente al Seor para que no seamos perturbados por las opiniones humanas y nuestra paz no depender de las palabras de los hombres. Encontraremos la verdadera paz y gloria en el Seor. Nos damos cuenta de que toda inquietud y distraccin de los sentidos surgen del amor desordenado y del vano temor. La espiritualidad no es slo un conjunto de ejercicios sentimentales. Todos tenemos que pasar por el proceso de purificacin en esta vida. Tenemos que ser cautelosos para evitar la tendencia a buscar el consuelo humano. Cuando estamos atribulados, cuando nuestros corazones no estn en reposo, y cuando estamos muy afligidos por estos sufrimientos actuales, debemos volar al Seor para consuelo. Humillados y liberados por l, seremos pacientes. No tendremos miedo por mucho que nos sintamos angustiados. En lugar de quejarnos y culpar a los dems, oraremos con alegra que "tu voluntad sea hecha" no la ma. As es como realmente seguimos a Jess y nos dentificamos con Sus sufrimientos por nuestra salvacin. Nuestros sufrimientos se vuelven redentores. Debemos entrenar a nuestros hijos a crecer con tal actitud devocional todos los das. Dios los bendiga a todos.
