Feast of St. Augustine
Bishop and Doctor of the Church
Out of the depths.... He shall redeem...
"Disease," "deadly," "wretchedness." Thus how God's grace triumphs when in the time He shows our sickness through the light of the Catholic Faith (cf., our post "On Lust and the Vice of Impurity"), we incline our ear and finally avail of His great power! So our dear "Little Therese" puts it thus: "Humility is truth." For He shall save the humble... of spirit.... glory shall uphold the humble of spirit (Ps. 17.28; 33.19; Pr. 29.23). We then sing as the converted Augustine sang (Bk. IX, Ch. 1): You have broken my bonds! (Ps. 115.16). In great contrast is the diabolical response among the unclean (see "Comment" below) and, more loudly, among those who now pride themselves to have revised Gen. 1.27 (male and female He created them) by 'creating' a 'third sex/gender': "We're O.K. Nothing DISordered, nothing DISoriented in us [no thanks to the 'Pontifex', in our post "The Thoughts of God's Heart..."]. [g]od made us this way! This is 'NATURAL'" - the 'Naturalism' (denial of Original Sin) fundamental to Freemasonry and its 1789 revolutionary 'Rights of Man'! (cf., our post "Papal Condemnations of Freemasonry and Their Doctrines").
