+ Wednesday: Luke Chapter 12 +
[verses 4-7] I wish our share would be an honourable death which raises us to the beginning of eternal life. It necessarily cleaves to the blessings that spring from the divine love of God. Let us run away from the shameful life, and let us disregard it scornfully, the ugly life so temporal, that leads to eternal and bitter punishment.
+ St. Cyril the great
My purpose in being on earth is to get to heaven. Do I fear missing out on earthly pleasures, or do I fear an eternity without God? What are the blessings of a life on earth with God?
