We spend so much time on the life of the body in keeping it healthy and attractive that we forget that we are combined of body and soul. All this time spent on the body will be fruitless at the end of our life if we do not also make our soul “healthy and attractive” to Almighty God who will ask us what we have done with the talents which He has given us in life. All the riches that we have will mean nothing: “For what doth it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his own soul?” Mt.16:26 With this in mind, all the conferences from great spiritual writers of the Catholic Church will focus on saving one’s soul for eternal life and for saving as many souls with our life and talents as possible. We want to hear these final words from Jesus Christ at our judgment when we die: “Well done, good and faithful servant: because thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will place thee over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” Mt. 25:23

The Psalms Part 40 08-06-18
On the Psalms 08 June 2018 - Part 40
Friday 8 June 2018 Ps. 54 Wednesday at Tierce: “A prayer to overcome the fear of death.” “My Daily Psalm Book. The Roman Breviary,” Vol. II p. 435: “This psalm is a difficult one for the Christian to understand. The greatest way to grasp it is to pray it in the name of the Church: the enemy is the devil and his tools the sinners. In the curse formulas we do not mean to wish eternal punishment upon the sinner, only to bring God’s justice to light.” Commentary of St. Robert Bellarmine: Verse 1. David begins with a preface to arrest the benevolence of the Judge, and asks for a kind and patient hearing, saying, “Hear, O God, my prayer;” and for fear the prayer, or the person offering it, may not be agreeable, he recommends both, and first the prayer, saying, “And despise not my supplication;” that is, my humble and suppliant prayer, for such is the force of the word in Hebrew.” P.255 Saint Robert Bellarmine. “A Commentary on the Book of Psalms”.
