This post continues the train of thought from the last one. As I have stated on this site, the goal of my blog is to bring all, myself included, to union with God. Then I must remember that the ultimate goal is to please God, not to feel good ourselves. I have just started reading The Ascent of Mount Carmel by St. John of the Cross and it doesn't seem that the ascent to union, according to him, is a quick, simple process. But I do believe that a simple trusting faith I talked about in the last post and a great love and appreciation for the Holy Eucharist can help us go a long, long way. These two things are within the reach of everyone if we'll just ask the Lord to grant them to us.
