“They say, ‘Absence makes the heart grow fonder’. In many ways, this is a ridiculous statement. ‘Out of sight, out of mind’ is more apt to be the case.
Our Soul, not being able to be seen by us, is at a great disadvantage, but our Faith in God instills within us the true presence of our Soul. It is our Soul’s love for God, and God’s for our Soul that we feel, without knowing what we feel, but It is That Part of us that recognizes our need for God in our whole life.
Human weaknesses are oftentimes, many times, what makes us say, ‘Absence makes the heart grow fonder,’ only because it is a romantic attitude and phrase toward accepting being parted from a loved one. The only time that this can be one hundred percent true, is when memory or imagination magnifies a relationship. ‘Out of sight, out of mind’ is truly more realistic.
Our Faith in God, the knowledge He has allowed us to have where our Faith is concerned, has to be an active part of our life to keep it alive. That is why it is so necessary to be constantly aware of the need to pray, constantly have before us statues and many other Sacramentals that encourage us to take the time to be with God in prayer in some form, whether it be through a formal prayer, a sound religious ceremony, or at a prescribed time of learning more about God; along with this, always being aware of the Ten Commandments as our Guidelines for life, and what impact our good example has on others.
Keep in mind, no child is born to the earth for no reason. There is Purpose to each one’s life. There is Reason for each one’s life, there is sound direction to guide each one to a life of fulfillment and to Sainthood. Life is a Cherished Gift from God.
Sainthood is the reward given to each one who uses Faith in God in the full way God intended. Faith is fact based on what God has given us through His Ten Commandments and through Holy Mother Church. Let no man distract you from your Faith in God in the manner God intended for your Faith to be. Let no man diminish your belief in the necessity for your morals to be sound and pure. Rid yourself of any environment or situation or company that encourages you to be less than God wants you to be.”
