Adios July 29, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in Admin, General Catholic, Saints, sanctity, The End.
It is with all my heart, I say the word, “Adios.” To God (A Dios) may you ever belong in this life, serving Him faithfully in the midst of the pains we all have in carrying our crosses, and in the immortal life, blessing Him eternally with all the celestial court. The greater good of our souls is to be with God; and the greatest good, to be with God alone.
He who is with God alone, is never sad, unless for having offended God, and his sadness then consists in a profound but tranquil and peaceful humility and submission, after which he rises again in the Divine Goodness, by a sweet and perfect confidence, without chagrin or vexation.
He who is with God alone seeks only God, and because God is no less in tribulation than in prosperity, he remains in peace in times of adversity.
He who is with God alone thinks often of Him in the midst of the occupations of this life. He who is with God alone would be glad that everyone should know he wishes to serve God, and to be engaged in exercises suitable to keep him united to God.
Live then entirely to God; desire only to please Him, and to please creatures only in Him; and for Him. What greater blessing can I wish you? Thus, then, by this continual wish I make for your soul, I say: Adios.
To God let us belong, without end, without reserve, without measure, as He is ours forever. May we always unite our little crosses with His great one.
To God let us live, and to God without anything more, since out of Him, and without Him, we seek for nothing; no, not even for ourselves, who, indeed, out of Him, and without Him, are only true nothings.
Adios. I desire for you the abundance of Divine Love, which is and will be forever the only good of our hearts, given to us only for Him, who has given His Heart entirely to us.
Let Jesus be our crown! Let Mary be our hope! I am, in the name of the Son and the Mother,
