The Book of the Foundations

By

St. Teresa of Avila

Chapter 6 – St. Teresa shows the harm that may happen to spiritual persons by their not understanding when they should resist the spirit (ie. the difference between rapture and absorption).  She also treats of the desires a soul may have to communicate (receive Holy Communion), and of the deceit there may be in doing so.  Other important matters are mentioned for the government of the houses.

PoC-46 Holy Saturday: The Power of the Cross Lenten Meditation

Taking Up Our Cross. . .Be Not Afraid

Steps to Take as You Follow Christ

Ask—Is life a series of “gifts” from God or tragedies?

Seek—Encounter the empty tombs of life with the expectation that they are signs of the Risen Christ.

Knock—Meditate on 1 John 4:18–19.

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and he who fears is not perfected in love. We love, because he first loved us.

How do you view the events of your life, as God punishing you or as God showering you with gifts? Is your image of what God is like from the way Jesus reveals God to us or from some other source?

Transform Your Life—Accept the cross whenever it presents itself to you in daily life. Do not flee from it. Do not shrink from it, but embrace it in the name of Jesus. Learn from it, be enlightened by it, find in it the key to living a fruitful life. Think of this every time that you sign yourself with the cross.
