Morality Today - The Bible In My Life Author:Daughters of St. Paul "Morality Today" presents the biblical approach to God's precepts in a personal style, which inclines the reader to vital dialogue with him: — "O Lord, Your great convert St. Augustine has a wonderful saying:'Love and do what you will.' For where there is true love it will always mean the following of Your law. — "St. Thomas Aquinas adds: 'God's c... more »ommandments are light to the loving, heavy to the fearful.' This does not mean, however, that obedience to Your commandments, O Lord, may not be painful, and at times, may even cost us a great deal. But what does the cost matter to us, when we consider Your sacrifice on the cross by which You merited for us the grace necessary to faithfully persevere? You communicate this grace to us through the sacraments and prayer. Therefore, no temptation-no matter how strong-can take us away from you.
"Your bible also and the teachings of the Church make it abundantly clear that we cannot be Christ's disciples or have truly informed consciences unless we know your law, O God-a law of love-and keep it."« less
