So often outside of the Church, it is common to hear phrases such as “the Church has to adapt itself to the times”, “The Church does not lie in my bed.”
Do not be fooled: just having a pure heart, we can see God and discover his will. If we live in sin, we cannot discover what is His will for our life, for we will live blind, in impurity, not turning our eyes to God. Without doubt, the will of God is that we may be happy, being free, and not slaves to sin. If we live a courtship in chastity, in purity, we can discern if the one at our side is or is not the gift of God for my life. Let us not be lukewarm, let us not speak of making love when we are still not blessed by the sacrament of marriage. “Making Love” outside of marriage is not making love, it is fornicating. (Sin seduces, fools, including altering our form of speaking.
All courtship should be the fruit of a good friendship. All marriage, fruit of an excellente courtship. Perhaps a courtship commences without true friendship, then it did not commence well. If a marriage es the fruit of an unholy courtship, it will be very difficult to live a marriage in holiness. Read well:
Permítanme poner este trozo de Eclesiastés 6, 14-17, ampliando la amistad al pololeo…
A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter; he who finds one finds a treasure.
A faithful friend is beyond price, no sum can balance his worth.
A faithful friend is a life-saving remedy, such as he who fears God finds;
For he who fears God behaves accordingly, and his friend will be like himself.
Your Fiancee should be your best friend
Your husband should be your best friend, Your wife should be your best friend
Ánimo, lo importante es tener un corazón deseoso de hacer la voluntad del Señor, de alcanzar la santidad. Si caemos, leventémonos, reconozcámonos pecadores, acudamos a recibir el Sacramento de la Sanación (confesión) y sigamos caminando en el Señor.
The important thing is to have a heart desiring to do the will of the Lord, to achieve holiness. If we fall, we get up we recognize that we are sinners, we choose to receive the Sacrament of Healing (confession) and we continue walking in the Lord.
Dios te bendice.
God bless you,
