Series on Gaining Financial Freedom

GAINING FINANCIAL FREEDOM (PART 4)

Part 4: “Letting Go of Whatever Keeps Us From God”

“One inordinate appetite (for earthly goods) alone… suffices to make a soul so captive, dirty, and unsightly that until the appetite is purified the soul is incapable of conformity with God in union. This is true even though there may be no matter for mortal sin in the appetite. What then will be the ugliness of a soul entirely disordered in its passions and surrendered to its appetites? How far it will be from God and His purity!” (St. John of the Cross)

“There is one only means of constraining the good God not to judge us at all; it is to appear before Him with our hands empty.” (St. Therese of the Little Flower)

“It makes little difference whether a bird is tied by a thin thread or by a cord. For even if tied by thread, the bird will be prevented from taking off just as surely as if it were tied by cord — that is, it will be impeded from flight as long as it does not break the thread…. This is the lot of a man who is attached to something; no matter how much virtue he has, he will not reach the freedom of divine union.” (St. John of the Cross)
