Yes, of course, Shin, I perfectly agree with what you say about the tunic and sandals!  I myself never have had a problem with Jesus' tunic and sandals growing with Him.  One Novus Ordo priest I know had a problem with it; he said (based on the Scriptures) that Jesus was like us in everything except for sin, so he did not believe that Jesus' tunic and sandals grew with him..  The other woman I spoke about in my other posts I think may have doubted the two things I mentioned to her, without 100% disbelieving in them; but this Novus Ordo priest flat out disbelieves what Ven. Mary Agreda revealed--because of the passage in Scriptures which says that Jesus was like us in everything except sin.  But I know that if the Mother of God was only a creature and was unlike us in that she hadn't original sin, etc., I also know that Jesus, though like us in everything except for sin, could also have unique things about Him.  God bless you!



BTW, Shin, I am having problems posting with "quotes" from previous posts.  I keep getting a message that some error has occurred.

Therese, perhaps are you trying to quote a message that has a link in it?

This would not work, even if it is an internal link to the website. Folks can request those be edited in of course, but any posting of a link by a normal user results in an error.

Ah, thanks for the helpful information, Shin!  But only one of my posts included a link from a previous post, the second post didn't.  We'll see if this one goes through.  God bless you!

Dear Shin,

What would your response have been to the Novus Ordo priest of which I speak?

"As thy Creator, Preserver and Benefactor, He claims thy gratitude; as Father, thy reverence; as Spouse, thy fidelity; as a Friend, amicable intercourse; as the most Faithful, He should excite thy faith and hope; as the highest and eternal Good, He should possess thy love, as the Almighty, thy entire subjection; as the most just Judge, He should rouse thy humble and holy fear.'

'The temporal goods are created by the Most High for the sole purpose of sustaining life; having attained this end, the need of them ceases.'

'Of the things of things that are necessary for human life, accept only so much, as is needed to prevent death or indecency.'

'After once the senses are mortified, it will be easy to overcome thy enemies, for only though them can they conquer thee; for no thought can recur, or be awakened to activity, unless fomented and excited by the images and impressions admitted through the exterior senses.  Thou shouldst not touch, nor look upon, nor speak to any person of whatever condition, whether man or woman, so as to let their images or resemblances find entrance into thy imagination.  This carefulness, which I enjoin, will be the guard of the purity, which I require of thee.  If on account of charity or obedience thou must converse with them (for only these virtues are sufficient causes for conversing with creatures), do it with all gravity, modesty and reserve.'

'Remember, that a voluntary remissness in regard to one imperfection prepares and opens the way for others: these facilitate the commission of venial sins, these again of mortal sins.  Thus the descent is from one abyss to another, until the bottom is found in the disregard of all evil.'

I am not certain how I would reply to the priest beyond the fact that miracles are common throughout Our Lord's life, as they are through the lives of the saints, therefore, the scriptural passage in question is not about that subject.

'In Baptism He instills the virtues of faith, hope and charity, and with these other virtues, by which the creature is to co-operate and exert itself toward the pursuit of Good, not only preserving within itself those received in the sacraments, but acquiring others by its own merits and exertions.  This will be the greatest happiness and blessedness of men, that they correspond to the love, which the Creator and Redeemer shows them, adorning their soul and, by the infused habits, familiarizing themselves with the virtuous exercise of their own will.  But the failure to correspond to those inestimable benefits brings on their greatest misfortune, because in this disloyalty consists the first great victory of the demon over man.'

Now that is a quote for Saints' Quotes for certain, as well as an eventual selection on baptism or infused virtues.
