    ...the servant of the Lord...

    "Lusts of youth avoid, and follow righteousness, faith, love and peace, with them that call on the Lord with pure heart. Foolish and unlearned questions put from thee, remembering that they do but gender strife. But the servant of the Lord must not strive: but must be peaceable unto all men, and apt to teach, and one that can suffer the evil in meekness, and can inform them that resist, if that God at any time will give them repentance for to know the truth: that they may come to them selves again out of the snare of the devil, which are now taken of him at his will." (2 Timothy 2:22-26)

    St Bernadette Soubirous had written the following in her diaries: "Poverty should no be merely irksome, but crucifying. .... What was once mine belongs to me no longer. I have given all to Jesus." And by all reports she was a model of religious poverty.


    Sometimes the way to reach a state of peace is by going further into and toward a sacrificial renunciation of a lust or passion (crucifying a desire) for things that would elsewise occupy the thoughts with fruitless longing, becoming an evil in that it pulls one away from right conduct to -- and due consideration for --other people.
