Montfort's Meditations: I must decrease, He must increase...

Much has been said about the Canadian hierarchy recently and the sins committed. Yes, we do have an obligation to condemn these offenses against the greatness of God. Our main calling in life is to save our won souls and , in doing so, try to save others for God.

How then do we save our souls? let me quote St. Paul: " What God wants for you all is to be holy. He wants you to keep away from fornication and each one of you to know how to use the body that belongs to him in a way that is holy and honourable, not giving way to selfish lust like the pagans who do not know God".

We are called to love God with our whole heart, our whole soul and our whole strength. This really means, as St. John Baptist said :" I must decrease, he must increase".  Many of the saints told us in their writings that they only lived fro Christ, that they were only instruments of God's grace. We would do well to contemplate these great saints lives and consider our own life.

My friends, contemplate God and His love for you. Beg Him for grace to love Him as you should. Nothing is more important in this life than this. May God bless you.

Thanks Montfort for a good post. Readers may not be aware that his posts arrive by carrier pigeon so it's always a treat when one arrives safely. Thanks again.
