Christian life hinges upon brotherly love. We may give expression to the best within us.

 

The Gospel teaches us that there may be always a new beginning every moment so as to gain Christ’s presence.

 

Patience is the power to bring to us the kingdom of happiness. Jesus knows our shortcomings and gives us His tolerance. Let us help each other. Live is the law.

 

We must be faithful in little promises. Many people are completely involved with heavenly glories, while they are careless in little things.

 

Let us wake up. Devotion claims fulfilment. He who knows becomes responsible. The world needs help.

 

Let us be of service at every opportunity. In the Gospel as well as in business one must look ahead.

 

Jesus said; “Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? And not one of them shall fall to the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered”.

 

We can not measure God’s glory around us, but we can recognize the divine attributes of God through our love to our fellow man.

 

As far as it goes, the definition of the New Testament, “God is love; and he that abideth in  love abideth in God, and God abideth in him”, carries with it the promise that by living  and practising pure love man will finally attain to the state of union with the Maker for  ever.

 

Would we find God? Then we need to follow Jesus Christ. Service with Him, is the real easement of life’s problems.

 

Good things do not come to us by chance. The happiness and the peace in the soul’s kingdom come from love’s service. When we find love in our heart, Jesus is there.

 

“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” – Jesus (Matthew, 6:21)

When you see yourself on the verge of impatience that is able to throw your heart to the thorns of anguish, count the advantages that you have, in order to become immune to the attack of darkness.

 

Misunderstandings in family…

Remember those who long to find someone, even for a simple argument, on the chronic loneliness in which they find themselves.

 

Friends who go away…

Meditate on the probation of those who never had them.

 

Aggressions…

Think about the balanced brain that you have to support the fellows who are sick on the soul.

 

Beloved ones facing serious problems with feelings…

Meditate about your tranquility and safety, because of which, for now, you are able to stay free of obsessions.

 

Overload of tasks, which compel you to despondency and tiredness…

Spend a few moments examining the fight of the brothers who are out of any possibility of employment to guarantee their own maintenance.

 

Nuisances…

Evaluate the importance of some words of comfort that you can bring to fellows who are sick or comprehensibly weakened by the suffering that dominates them.

 

Broken home…

Take a look at the brothers who go by without a home.

 

 

Count the blessings in your life and vaccinate yourself against despair, because despair is a volcano of fire and darkness; its extension on the domains of disarray and death no one can measure.

                        “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended; but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark of the prize of the high calling of God in Jesus Christ.”

 

Philippians, 3:13,14

 

 

                   How many of us are tied to memories of unhappy experiences?

 

                   It might not be possible to erase some moments from our memory definitely, but the way we choose to deal with these reminiscences depends only on us: do we choose to live attached to these memories or do we choose to go on?

 

                   Frequently some situation from the past keeps coming to our minds because it remains unsolved. Let’s analyze, then, what do we have to do to solve the question: is it forgiving someone or forgiving ourselves? Do we need to correct some mistake? 

 

                   Let’s do, then, what is necessary to resolve the situation so that the past won’t stop us from going ahead; always asking God for strength so that we can make the best decisions on this process.  

 

                   Paul, the Apostle, teaches us that we must go on, “reaching forth unto those things which are before”, freeing ourselves from the past and reaching for the future in which, through our efforts on Good, we’ll find “the prize of the high calling of God in Jesus Christ.”

If you can’t be patient because you are under the troubles of some illness, revolting yourself against the situation will only worsen your condition, doing harm to your treatment.  

 

If losses of material resources have dilapidated your economic savings and you stay away from work, intending to protest against the world, that will put you under bigger difficulties.  

 

If you revolt yourself against the illness of someone dear, this attitude will enlarge the sickness of the person you dedicate yourself to.

 

If you rebel yourself against the friend that does not embrace your points of view anymore, that’s a behavior that will only set you on bitterness for no reason.

 

If you don’t accept the work conditions life has designated for you, denying yourself the necessary renovation, you will obtain nothing but frustration on unemployment.

 

If you don’t keep the necessary calm while facing offense and critics, you will inevitably enter the domains of desperation.

 

Patience is the support of peace for all crisis and probations on which you may be. Exchanging it for complaint and rage, discontentment and intolerance, will always be leaving the little difficulty which you are facing to fall into the worst one.

 

 

Emmanuel (spirit) / Chico Xavier (medium)

To walk safely on the trail of virtue, we have to dispose of every bit of illusion we have built for ourselves. In order to do that, we must think deeply about the reason why we are on Earth.

 

Are we here to be rich? Are we here to be loved? Are we here to be famous? Are we here to be beautiful? Are we here to be happy?

 

“Happiness is not of this world”, Jesus said. That’s the truth that sets us free.

 

We are here to suffer the consequences of our previous acts, in this life or another. That’s why no one will, on this Earth, experience a life completely free from trouble. Happiness is not the goal we must pursue; whoever spends his entire life looking for it will be frustrated, since happiness comes and goes in this world.

 

Once we understand and accept this truth, it becomes easier to deal with the things we desire that we know we won’t get (unless they are on God’s plan for us). Sometimes we want something so badly, that it seems we won’t be able to live anymore if we don’t get it. Some people even create an imaginary life where everything is possible, and lose a precious time feeding this illusion, a time that could be spent achieving real things.

 

Realizing what we are here for helps to eliminate the anxiety and anguish these illusions bring.

 

So, the next time we feel anxious because of an intense desire of something we don’t have, like beauty or a lot of money or fame, or any other thing, let’s remember that our mission on Earth is seizing the opportunity, that God has graciously provided, of learning and redeeming ourselves from previous mistakes. Let’s not waste this marvelous opportunity longing for things that don’t matter to our spiritual growth. And this thought will bring peace to our hearts.  

 

 

Fraternally,  

Faced by the night, do not censure the darkness.

Learn to disperse it with light.

 

*

It is futile to condemn the swamp.
Help it become purified.

*

 

 

 

On a stony road, do not throw rocks at others.
Transform the stones into useful works.

*

Avoid condemning the clamor of others.
Teach a profitable lesson with your silence.

 *

When faced by difficult situations, do not adopt uncertainty.
Confront them with a clean conscience.

*

It is useless to blame the thorn.

Remove it with kindness.

*

Do not criticize the barren ground.
Instead, fertilize it.

*

Do not reproach the desert.

Help dig a well under the burning sand.

*

There is no advantage in disapproving when everyone else disapproves.
Help your brother with a good word.

*

It is always easy to observe evil and identify it.
However, what Christ expects from us is the discovery and cultivation
of the good so that Divine Love may be glorified.
