One of my great desires is that the Gospel always be presented as
filling our hearts with
joy and consolation.
Yes, Jesus’ teaching is demanding, but St. Therese helps us see it as genuine good news, since the Gospel is no less than the revelation of God’s tenderness, God’s mercy toward each of his children, illuminating the laws of life that lead to happiness.
“Sometimes when I read certain spiritual treatises where perfection is shown through a thousand obstacles, surrounded by a host of snares, my poor little spirit quickly tires, I shut the learned book that makes my head ache and dries up my heart, and I take up Sacred Scripture. Then everything seems luminous to me, one single word reveals infinite horizons to my soul, perfection seems easy, and I see that it is enough to recognize one’s own nothingness and abandon oneself like a child into God’s arms.
Leaving to great souls, great spirits, the beautiful books that I cannot understand and still less put into practice, I rejoice to be little, because only children and those who are like them will be admitted to the heavenly banquet.”
Actress Alyssa Milano and 49 other celebrities will reportedly fund a Right to Life Full-Term Center for any women with a crisis pregnancy who desires help! The star called on the film and TV industry to join her in the State of Georgia, where she plans to build the first Center of its type.
In a letter she sent to both Georgia Governor Brian Kemp as well as Georgia House Speaker David Ralston she wrote, “As actors, our work often brings us to Georgia. We’ve always found your state to be populated with friendly and caring people,” the letter begins. ”We’ve been glad to bring millions of dollars in revenue to support Georgia’s schools, parks and communities. And it is because of the continued gracious hospitality we have always been shown that we find no better State than Georgia to build our first projected Center- especially in part to the new “heartbeat bill” the Georgian Senate passed earlier this month . We consider sharing the grotesque amount of personal wealth we have acquired a privilege; and find no effort more noble than to champion toward truly supporting and helping women in crisis, in this life-giving manner. ”
