THE WORLD




THE WORLD IS MY GOD

If people would do for God what they do for the world, a great number of Christians would go to heaven. If we have to stay in church as long as we stay in a dance or party, we would be full of complaints.

If you were asked to go to several churches to hear several sermons the way you go to several stores to window shop, you will surely raise a howl; you will resent the former but you will enjoy the latter.

Ahh. . .nothing is so much much trouble when done for the world. . .even if there is great danger for the soul to lose God.

Christ said in truth and with good reason that the children of this world are more zealous in serving their master, the world, than the children of light are in serving theirs, God.

When it comes to serving the world and satisfying our pleasures, we do not fear expense or going into debt; but if it is for good works, frankly, no one goes into debt for them.

This is true for most Catholics; they have everything for the world and nothing at all for God because, to them, the world is everything and God is nothing. 

St. John Vianney
