St. Thomas Aquinas

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

“I have come to further enlighten souls concerning the journey through the Chambers of the United Hearts.”

“As the soul passes through the First Chamber, which is purgation of his greatest iniquities, he moves into the subsequent Chambers, which lead him to deeper holiness, and at the same time deeper introspection as to his smaller faults and failings. For instance, the soul cannot increase in virtue unless he recognizes the ways he is not living in virtue. This is again a purging of the old ways and putting on the new.”

“So then, the entire journey is a deepening self-awareness of flaws in Holy Love–a deepening purgation of errors in love. It is thus the soul is able to rise to perfection and eventual union with the Divine Will.”
