Christian Mortification – H.E. Card.Mercier

Cardinal Mercier exhorted devotion to the Holy Spirit.
He said: “I want to reveal to you the secret of holiness and joy. If every day, for five minutes, you know how to impose silence on your imagination and close your eyes to all external things and ears to all the noises of the earth to enter into yourself, and there, in the sanctuary of your baptized soul, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit, speak to this divine host and say to him: “0 Holy Spirit, soul of my soul, I love you! Enlighten me, guide me, fortify me, console me, tell me what I need to do, give me your orders. I promise to submit in everything to your desire and accept how much you want to send me! Just teach me your will.” If you do this, I repeat, your life will flow away happy, serene and consoled, albeit in tribulations, because grace will be proportionate to the test and will give you the strength to bear it and you will reach heaven full of merits. This submission to the Holy Spirit is the secret of holiness.
