“Not in mortification, not in prayer, not in labor, nor in rest, but in obedience is the essence and merit of holiness.” – St. Maximillian Kolbe
You want to be empowered by the grace of God? Show Him you are loyal … show Him you want to please Him … show Him you are a TRUE child of God!! Then, then, then … He will find in you a soul He can trust to be His ambassador in the world.
“For as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous.” (Romans 5:19)
“Our Lady’s message at Fatima is that we must repent. Repentance for the sin of denying sin is obedience to the will of God. Whenever we sin, we indulge our own will in opposition to the divine will. To repent, we must bend our wills to God’s will. And this is the hardest task we have to do on earth.
This kind of repentance by obedience must begin with ourselves. We who have the true faith must merit the graces that others need to be converted in obedience to the Divine Majesty. We must give the example to others of what it means to be humble by obeying the will of God in our lives, so that others may see our obedience and be converted from their evil ways. We must pay the heavy price of bending the knees of our self-will to the demanding will of God’s Providence. Why? So that God may be merciful to a sinful world and bring it back to moral sanity.” -Fr. John Hardon
“In so far as divine love beautifies our souls, and makes us pleasing to His Divine Majesty, it is called grace; in so far as it gives us strength to do good, it is called charity; but when it reaches such a degree of perfection that it makes us not only do the good, but do so carefully, frequently and readily, then it is called devotion.” –St. Francis de Sales
