“When the scribes of the Pharisees saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors,they said to his disciples,Why do you eat with tax collectors and sinners?When Jesus heard this,he said to them,Those who are well have no need of a physician;but those who are sick;I have come to call not the righteous but sinners”
Soul:But when I compare myself to others,I feel so inferior,so hopelessly imperfect and sinful.God cant possibly want to “call” me,
“Dont give too much importance to what the enemy and your imagination suggests to you…
“Do you know what religion is?It is the academy of perfection in which each soul must learn to allow itself to be handled,planned and smoothed by the divine Spirit,when he also acts as a doctor of our souls so that,having been well planned and smoothed,they can be united and joined to the will of God.
“Religion is a hospital for the spiritually ill who wish to be cured,and in order to acheive this,they submit themselves to…some probing,surgical instruments,fire,and all the pains of medicine”
How merciful you are,Lord to go to all this trouble to save me.I submit myself, now and forever,to the fire of your divine medicine.Amen.
