Thanks for the assurance, Shin! Smiley


I expect we'll see a few beatifications annulled in the future.  Cheesy

Since you have been brought back to true life with Christ,
 you must look for the things that are in heaven, where Christ is, sitting at God’s right hand.
 Let your thoughts be on heavenly things,
not on the things that are on the earth,
because you have died, and now the life you have is hidden with Christ in God.
 But when Christ is revealed – and he is your life – you too will be revealed in all your glory with him.
Colossians 3:1-4
Today's Second Reading.

'Finally, the happiness of the person whose will is entirely submitted to God's is constant, unchangeable and endless. No fear comes to disturb it for no accident can destroy it. He is like a man seated on a rock in the middle of the ocean who looks on the fury of the waves without dismay and can amuse himself watching and counting them as they roar and break at his feet. Whether the sea is calm or rough, whichever way the waves are carried by the wind is a matter of indifference to him, for the place where he is is firm and unshakeable.

That is the reason for the peaceful and untroubled expression we find on the faces of those who have dedicated themselves to God.'

Born as a Son,
led forth as a Lamb,
sacrificed as a Sheep,
buried as a Man,
He rose from the dead as a God,
for He was by nature God and man.

He is all things:
He judges, and so He is Law;
He teaches, and so He is Wisdom;
He saves, and so He is Grace;
He begets, and so He is Father;
He is begotten, and so He is Son;
He suffers, and so He is Sacrifice;
He is buried, and so He is man;
He rises again, and so He is God.
This is Jesus Christ,
to whom belongs glory for all ages.

Prayer of Saint Melito of Sardis.

Shin, that is exactly how I feel. It is a beautiful prayer. I wanted to find out more about the author, Saint Melito. Not much available though. Only that  he was  a 2nd Century Saint. Born in 110 and died in 180. He became Bishop of Sardis, Lydia which is now part of modern Turkey.
Reportedly wrote numerous theological treatises and had the gift of prophesy.
His Memorial is 1 April.
Thanks to God and to Saint Melito for that beautiful prayer in praise of Jesus!

"Priests have received a power which God has given neither to angels nor to archangels.
 It was said to them:
 ‘Whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever you shall loose, shall be loosed.’
Temporal rulers have indeed the power of binding; but they can only bind the body.
 Priests, in contrast, can bind with a bond which pertains to the soul itself and transcends the very heavens.
Did [God] not give them all the powers of heaven?...What greater power is there than this?
 The Father has given all judgment to the Son.
 And now I see the Son placing all this power in the hands of men.
They are raised to this dignity as if they were already gathered up to heaven"

Let us therefore give ourselves to God with a great desire to begin to live thus, and beg Him to destroy in us the life of the world of sin, and to establish His life within us.

Certainly! The two goals can be in opposition! After all, one of the three great enemies is 'the flesh'!

'If you have promised Christ to travel the straight and narrow road, then keep your stomach in check; for if you give in to it, oif you enlarge it, you are breaking your promise. Listen and hear the word of warning: "Wide and spacious is the road of gluttony. It leads to the catastrophe of fornication, and there are many who travel that way. The gate is narrow and the way of fasting is hard, that way leads to the life of purity, and there are few to make the journey" (cf. Matt. 7:13-14)

The fallen Lucifer is prince of the demons, and gluttony is prince of the passions. So when you sit at a well-laden table, remember death and remember judgment, and even then you will only manage to restrain yourself a little. And when you drink, keep always in mind the vinegar and gall of your Lord. Then indeed, you will be either temperate or sighing; you will keep your mind humble. For you must not fool yourself. You will not escape from Pharaoh and you will not see the heavenly Passover unless you constantly eat bitter herbs and unleavened bread, the bitter herbs of toil and hard fasting, the unleavened bread of a mind made humble. Join to your breathing the word of him who said: "When devils plagued me, I put on sackcloth, humbled my soul with fasting, and my prayer stuck to the bosom of my soul" (Ps. 34:13).'
