Yes, the more one studies the Bible, the more one realises how Saint Augustine was right when he said:
 “The New Testament lies hidden in the Old, and the Old Testament is unveiled in the New.”

I do not know why I thought this was a quote from Saint Jerome.  Smiley

'O my child, bethink you that just as the bee, having gathered heaven's dew and earth's sweetest juices from amid the flowers, carries it to her hive; so the Priest, having taken the Saviour, God's Own Son, Who came down from Heaven, the Son of Mary, Who sprang up as earth's choicest flower, from the Altar, feeds you with that Bread of Sweetness and of all delight.'

'Be careful not to admit into your society those delicate and sensitive people who are afraid of the slightest pin prick, who cry out and complain at the least pain, who know nothing of the hairshirt, the
discipline or other instruments of penance, and who mingle, with their
fashionable devotions, a most refined fastidiousness and a most studied lack of mortification.'

Today's Divine Intimacy meditation concludes with a beautiful quote from St. Mary Magdalene dei Pazzi.  I want to share it with you.  Here it is:

"O blessed, happy, and glorious is he who suffers for love of You, O eternal Word, for--shall I dare say it?--as long as we are here below, it is a greater thing to suffer for You than to possess You, because possessing You, we can still lose You, but if we suffer for love of You, it will admit us to eternal life where we can never lose You" (St. Mary Magdalen dei Pazzi).

I agree, Shin.  Now that you mention it I think I should make it a mediation of mine.  God bless you!

Yes! I am thinking though that one cannot suffer for Him without possessing Him. The two seem to me like conjoined twins Smiley

You know well enough that Our Lord does not look so much at the greatness of our actions, nor even at their difficulty, but at the love with which we do them.

But do you think that one can possess Him while refusing to suffer for Him?

I should say, but do you think that one can possess Him for long while refusing to suffer for Him?

No, not for long. But possessing Him, can one really refuse to suffer for Him?  Grin

A person still can refuse to suffer for God after having possessed Him.  For example, a professed religious brother not so strong in piety and who used to love women a lot before entering the religious life can receive God in Holy Communion for years in a state of grace (thus possessing Him) and then one day while away from the safe place of his friary, begging for the friars, falls completely head over heals for an extremely beautiful and kind woman whom he used to date and whom it would be un-lawful for him to marry (his passions and concupiscence gets the best of him).  Up until this point he had possessed God.  But the brother keeps his secret passion from his Father Guardian for whatever reason and chooses NOT to give up his "love" for this woman, fantasizing a great part of the day about her (thus sinning mortally), he will not suffer the loss of this "love of his life" for God; he chooses to give into his passions and desires (he even desires to date the woman and yes, have relations with her!)  He fell out of grace and lost His possession of God the moment he refused to suffer the loss of this "love of his life" for God.  This unfortunate situation has happened to husbands, wives, etc..  God bless you.

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.
