"You aim at a devout life, dear Philothea, because as a Christian you know that such devotion is most acceptable to God's Divine Majesty," says St. Francis de Sales in his book "Introduction to the Devout Life".
And we can all be Philotheas, as St. Francis notes: "I have made use of a name suitable to all who seek the devout life, Philothea meaning one who loves God."
I’m planning to spend this Advent really preparing for the coming of Our King…as in more prayer and
meditation, and less blogging.
I’m not sure whether that will mean less frequent posting
from me during Advent, but I think the posts that appear will probably more
often be meditative pieces that I’ve “stolen” from the Church fathers or from
solid preaching by Fr. Eric Andersen and others. That said, I do have one more humorous post about altars to provide for you tomorrow... ;-)
And, of course, Michael Voris will probably be making regular
appearances here, too; but I’ll probably just embed the video and provide a
link to the script, with little commentary.
