Series 3, Ep. 46: Perfecting Strength in Weakness
The Daily Decade for the Feast of S. Abraham the Hermit is on our own innate weaknesses and inabilities, and how we overcome them through Christ – that is, how Christ overcomes them through our humble acceptance of them in our hearts.
God love you!
Once again, here is the reverse of the prayer card mentioned on Friday (the obverse is the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe):
It is Lent! Remember St. Thomas Aquinas definition of “effeminicacy” when you shrink from your mortifications:
Perseverance is deserving of praise because thereby a man does not forsake a good on account of long endurance of difficulties and toils: and it is directly opposed to this, seemingly, for a man to be ready to forsake a good on account of difficulties which he cannot endure. This is what we understand by effeminacy, because a thing is said to be “soft” if it readily yields to the touch… properly speaking an effeminate man is one who withdraws from good on account of sorrow caused by lack of pleasure, yielding as it were to a weak motion.Summa II.II:138,1
