    At Adoration tonight, during Fathers reflection, he said the following which I thought was both wise an beautiful:

    The devil knows your name, but calls you by your sin; Jesus knows your sin, but calls you by your name

    Have you noticed how faith and religion are falling away, so some trends are growing, not only spiritual ones like yoga, various meditations, but let's say traveling as a way to fill time, not just rest..
    A man created in the spiritual image of God does not cease to be a spiritual being if he says he is an atheist, but that spirit in him is restless and seeks compensation. Then in everything he tries to find some satisfaction that will fill him and people wander from pleasure to pleasure.
    That's why this is a great quote from Bishop Sheen.

    "Lenten practices of giving up pleasures are good reminders that the purpose of life is not pleasure. The purpose of life is to attain to perfect life, all truth and undying ecstatic love - which is the definition of God. In pursuing that goal we find happiness. Pleasure is not the purpose of anything; pleasure is a by-product resulting from doing something that is good. One of the best ways to get happiness and pleasure out of life is to ask ourselves, 'How can I please God?' and, 'Why am I not better?' It is the pleasure-seeker who is bored, for all pleasures diminish with repetition."

    Fulton J. Sheen

    A most simple yet profound way to rid ourselves of pride:

    Blessed Raymond of Capua recounts the dialogue of Jesus with St. Catherine of Siena in this way

    The holy Virgin told her confessors, of who, though unworthy, I was one, that, at the beginning of her visions, when the Lord Jesus Christ first began to appear to her, he said, “Do you know, daughter, who you are, And who I am? If you know these two things, you will be blessed. You are she who is not; whereas I am He who is. Have this knowledge in you and the enemy will never deceive you…“
