The Doctors Speak...Light, Life and Love (13)

J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*

St. Augustine of Hippo

[...] then "the Lord will illuminate the hidden things in the darkness and will make manifest the cogitations of the heart; and then shall each one have his praise from God"--for what will be praised and loved in a neighbor by his neighbor is just that which, lest it remain hidden, God himself will bring to light. Moreover, passion decreases as love increases until love comes at last to that fullness which cannot be surpassed, "for greater love than this no one has, that a man lay down his life for his friends." Who, then, can explain how great the power of love will be, when there will be no passion for it to restrain or overcome? For, then, the supreme state of true health will have been reached, when the struggle with death shall be no more.

Sincerely yours in Jesus through Mary,
Mike Rizzio

Imitate Mary
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God

Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!

O Beata Trinitas;
