Friends of the Rosary:
What is the will of God? It is love, as love is His essence—to show love to others and/or will the good of others.
That is the way God’s goodness manifests itself to us.
God is the supreme lover of our soul. His goodness means that He provides what we need for our perfection, not merely what we desire for our pleasure, which very often leads to our destruction.
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen wrote: “As a sculptor, He sometimes applies the chisel to the marble of our imperfect selves and knocks off huge chunks of selfishness that His image may better stand revealed. Like a musician, whenever He finds the strings too loose on the violin of our personality, He tightens them even though it hurts, so that we may better reveal our hidden harmonies.”
What father does not want to be proud of his son? So long as there is love, there is necessarily a desire for the perfecting of the beloved.
What parent does not want to be proud of their child? So long as there is love, there is necessarily a desire for the perfecting of the beloved.
Because God loves us, like any father, He wants us to be happy. He made us for eternal joy.
Jesus, I Trust In You!
To Jesus through Mary!
Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will!
