They make them wretched and miserable

21 May 2022

Unfortunately, those who neglect their heart have been deprived of all good things, and fallen into a multitude of wickednesses. They’ve cast off joy and have been filled with bitterness, sorrow and worry. They’ve cast off peace and have acquired stress turmoil and fear. They’ve cast off love and welcomed hate. Finally, they’ve cast off all the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit  that they received at their baptism and have associated themselves with all those wickednesses that make people wretched and miserable.
