'How happy is the soul who detaches herself from all pleasure, from all sentiment, from all self-opinionatedness! You will realize this happiness if you put all your satisfaction in the cross of Jesus; that is, if you die on the cross of your Saviour to all that is not God.'

St. Paul of the Cross

How happy indeed! crucifix

The proof of love is in the works. Where love exists, it works great things. But when it ceases to act, it ceases to exist.

This is sooo true.  I pray we all persevere in the acting of love, sometimes easy and sometimes difficult.

Pope St. Gregory the Great

This is sooo true.  I pray we all persevere in the acting of love, sometimes easy and sometimes difficult.

 One of the Pharisees tested Jesus thus:
 "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" (Matthew 22:36).
 Jesus answered him:
 " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'  This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it:
 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'  All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments" (Matthew 22:37-40).
Love of God and of neighbor. That really is the key to everything! Smiley

I remember Saint Jerome's razor sharp words in connection with the ladies of his time and make-up.
I also still remember your "soap and water" comment Shin  Smiley

Uh-oh. I've forgotten it! What was it?

Make-up reminds me of a clown's mask. I know I heard some saint or priest make a remark like this and it has stayed with me. It's stuck with me now so that this is the impression I get. A mask, rather than a part of a person, which makes me feel sorry for the wearer.  Sad

How much more simple, clean and honest and Christian be however plain and the age one truly is. Age has a certain nobility when embraced gracefully.. with it's due respect!

Oh, you were commenting on Saint Jerome's stinging remarks on women wearing makeup, lipstick etc. You said soap and water is really all that is necesary; the clean smell of soap. Grin
You and Saint Jerome come from the same pod as far as this topic is concerned.

'If we wish to make any progress in the service of God we must begin every day of our life with new eagerness. We must keep ourselves in the presence of God as much as possible and have no other view or end in all our actions but the divine honor.'

Something to remember when a person wakes up in the morning! To get off a good start for the day!

There's nothing like keeping memory of the presence of God.  crucifix

That quote from St. Charles Borromeo is really sound advise. We cannot go wrong if we adhere to it.

Exercise of Spiritual Communion?
Does that mean saying the prayer recommended at the time of Communion when one is not able to actually receive it for one reason or another?
