St. John Vianney, Cure d'Ars and Patron of Priests says: "Praise be to Jesus."
"In moral issues and in political issues how many place God's Will above their own will and desires? This is why the heart of the world is estranged from God. This is why good over evil is not even a consideration."
"These moral standards need to be taught in the home and from the pulpit. Silence, so as not to offend anyone, is Satan's ploy. The soul that does not recognize good as opposed to evil is an easy instrument for Satan to use."
"Pay attention to the direction you are being inspired to follow. Evil is very good at disguises and misleading. If the Holy Spirit is leading you, all works will bear good fruits. Do not boast of being led by the Holy Spirit. That is spiritual pride. The Holy Spirit works everywhere and often through the least likely. His favorite instruments however, are the humble."
Read 1 Corinthians 2:10-13+
Synopsis: Wisdom of God revealed through the Holy Spirit who dwells within the soul and reveals the Spirits' Gifts that lie within.
God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. For what person knows a man's thoughts except the spirit of the man which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might understand the gifts bestowed on us by God. And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual Truths to those who possess the Spirit.
