Geese. That is making me think of cooked goose for some reason. Haha.

Or the goose rescued from the wolf by St. Vaast.

What kind of geese do you have down there?

Lord have mercy!

I think if more folks could be persuaded to take up the homesteading life the more the silliness would end. I wish I knew a way to foster it. Cheesy

I'm always encouraged when I hear about people taking up a simpler life. Wherever one is one can make a beginning at doing with less and making the best with what one has rather than always going out and getting new things.  flower

A treasure is secure so long as it remains concealed: but when once disclosed and laid open to every bold invader, it is presently rifled;
So virtue is safe as long as secret, but if rashly exposed, it but to often evaporates into smoke. By humility and contempt of the world, the soul like an eagle, soars on high, above all transitory things, and tramples on the backs of lions and dragons.

'And the blessed Angels, so loveable in their innocence, are they not the choice work of Thy Fingers, O Wisdom of God I For on the day of their creation Thou didst deck them with an incorruptible vestiture for the work of Thy holy service. These are the living stars of the higher heaven, the lilies of the inner paradise, the rose-trees planted by the silent-flowing waters of Siloe, with their roots immovably fixed in Thee.

O River of peace, O Breath of the garden of delights, O only Wisdom ranging round about the circling bourne of heaven; by Thee they shine, and burn, and glow in perfect wisdom, in virginal chastity, and in the ardours of a deathless love. Blooming in endless youth, they find in our weakness the sphere of their faithful service; for they lead us by the hand like tender guides, and direct our steps as we travel through this darksome world, and ward off the assaults of the enemy, and whisper to us the secrets of Thy will, and brace up our failing hearts to good, and carry up the incense of our prayers to the altar of gold, and always supplicate the Face of our merciful Father for us.'

Beautiful words, it makes you want to be amongst them, perhaps we are. Do you think so?

Haha, surely we have close friends in Heaven here below. If only we would attend to their help for us the more, and seek it in our troubles, surely they seek to give us what they have and enjoy so richly in Heaven, no?

 Cheesy

Blessed be God in His angels and in His saints!

It makes me want to say a novena or chaplet for the choirs of angels. Thank you George for these thoughts!

Meekness aids obedience, and is a quality of the angels. A meek soul is enlightened by the spirit of discernment, and is the seat of simplicity.
The simple soul is far removed from all vain, curious, and perverse thoughts; it goes directly and sincerely to God, as a scholar to his master.

Humility is a divine shield and veil which conceals our good works and virtues from our own too curious eyes.
Penance awakens us; holy sorrow knocks at heaven's gate; humility opens them.
This virtue is the only one no devil can imitate.
If pride made demons out of Angels, there is no doubt that humility could make Angels out of demons.
St. John Climacus
