Let your baptism be your arms; your faith, your helmet; your love, your spear; your endurance, your armor. Brahmacharya is a preparation for the life of the householder. The beauty of our fair ones gives point to our spears, and edge to our swords; their words are our law; and as soon will a lamp shed lustre when unkindled, as a knight distinguish himself by feats of arms, having no mistress of his affection.'' ``I have heard of this frenzy among the warriors of the west,'' said the Emir, ``and have ever accounted it one of the accompanying symptoms of that insanity, which brings you hither to obtain possession of an empty sepulchre.

A shepherd is responsible for the lives and welfare of His sheep, as they cannot care for themselves. Worship is the effort on the part of the Upasaka, i.e., he who does Upasana or worship, to reach the proximity or presence of God or the Supreme Self. Shepherds being the first to hear of the Savior's birth is not just a story about shepherds and angels and a poor family with no place to put their newborn baby boy. It is more a League of Religions than a single religion with a definite creed.

"I beseech you therefore," says Paul, "by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies."

This denotes the human body, which is also a combination of materials. Mention is made in the Talmud of this wilderness of Judea, as distinct from the land of Israel, when the doctors say, that ‘they do not bring up small cattle in the land of Israel, but they bring them up, ‘in the wilderness which is in Judea.’” John is not only mentioned in the Bible but secular writers and Jewish commentators as well. But the meek shall inherit the earth, And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

I promise to also save any sinner who calls on My Precious Blood. The moment when the fatal fruit was eaten, They parted ne'er to meet again: and Malice Has ever since been playmate to light Gaiety, From the first moment when the smiling infant Destroys the flower or butterfly he toys with, To the last chuckle of the dying miser, Who on his deathbed laughs his last to hear His wealthy neighbour has become a bankrupt.

I firmly believe Thou canst bestow on me the grace I implore, even though it should require a miracle. If God call for our whole persons, as it were, to be consumed by fire upon his altar, we must not draw back; but must say with the Apostle, “I am ready, not only to be bound, but also to die, for the Lord’s sake.” So far from regarding such an event with dread, we should rather consider it as our highest honour.... My Creator, give me joyful eyes for joyful nature.

Such preaching aimed at the conversion of the hearts and morals of the faithful, and encouraged them to approach the Sacrament of Penance, attend Sunday Mass regularly, and to demonstrate the importance of the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick and Viaticaum.

Margaret Mary Alacoque wrote many times to her director, Father Croiset, at the request of Our Lord, asking him to write a book to make the devotion to the Sacred Heart [which until then had only been practiced by chosen souls as a private devotion] known to the general body of the faithful.

Have I this constitution and furniture of soul granted me by nature, that I may lye among bed-cloaths and keep my self warm? That is frustrating and a very little good is accomplished as far as the spiritual use of the Scriptures. Mark 10:44 “And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.” I think many Christians want an elevated position in the Lord’s spiritual kingdom in this life. When Isaiah speaks of justice, he is not thinking of institutions but of you and me, because without you and me the most glorious institution becomes a lie.
