St. Thomas Aquinas

St. Thomas Aquinas comes and says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“Today I have come to speak to you about profanity. By this I do not limit my discussion to profane language. Rather, I speak more specifically about profanity of the present moment. Any time a soul consciously chooses not to live in Holy Love in the present moment, he has desecrated the moment at hand. You say, ‘But I try always to live in Holy Love.' Remember, my messenger, the just man falls many times a day.”

“The soul profanes the present moment when he consciously puts himself and his own desires at the center of his heart instead of God and neighbor. Perhaps his reputation has been damaged, and instead of asking God to forgive the slanderers, he becomes enraged and seeks justice. Perhaps he seeks some material thing that appeals to his senses and places the acquisition of this thing at the center of his heart above God and neighbor. Perhaps he is ambitious for success, money and power, and thinks of nothing else.”

“Today I invite each soul to look with the eyes of Truth into his own heart to see how often and why he profanes the present moment, for only with the eyes of Truth can he bring holiness into each moment.”
