CHRISTIAN LIFE




 

LIGHTS IN THE WORLD

We must aim at and desire everything that belongs to genuine love. Everything we do must benefit, not only ourselves but, others also. So, if we cannot give others anything, at least, give them good example. 

Heaven is not given to those who sleep or are idle. It is for dutiful children and good servants; and, for them, the way is easy and light. Nothing is difficult to the humble.

Why do you love the world which you have to leave behind or which will leave you even sooner?  Instead, love the things that do not wear out. Let the soul seek after those higher things for which it was made.

Make friends with angels; seek those things that made the patriarchs, prophets, apostles and martyrs happy.

While time is granted, you keep the commandments and be light to the world. Let nothing dark enter your heart.

Just as it is sad that, by and large, the name of the Lord is blasphemed on account of bad Christians, it is a great work that His name be glorified because of His servants' holy way of life.

St. Leo the Great
