'GIVE YOUR SERVANT A HEART TO UNDERSTAND HOW TO DISCERN BETWEEN GOOD & EVIL, SO TO GOVERN THIS VAST PEOPLE OF YOURS.'
'This is how it will be at the end of time: the angels will separate the wicked from the just, & throw them into the furnace. There will be wailing & grinding of teeth!'
Practice discernment. Evaluate alternatives; choose the sensible, avoid the immoral. Discernment supposes a knowledge of God's law & commitment to obey it. It guides our service to others, his purpose in creating us.
Prayer tunes in God's creative wisdom. Outside of time, the Creating Word communicates Itself to the open mind & heart. Prayer is the affirming attitude that permits grace to re-incarnate the Incarnate Word in each, through his Spirit & his ever present spouse, Mary.
