To Be an Oblation to Divine Servitude – Living the Mystery of Merciful Love
Description: This week, Dan, Melissa and Dr. Anthony Lilles dive into the oblation of St. Thérèse of Lisieux and take a closer look at her desire to serve the Lord; to be an Oblation to Divine Servitude.
Topics/Questions covered in the show:
- How can St. Thérèse “save souls on earth by liberating those suffering in purgatory”?
- How can God be her holiness?
- St. Thérèse recognizes her powerlessness to be holy and relies on God to attain the heights of holiness.
- The measure of our spiritual progress and our holiness is love of God and love of neighbor.
- St. Thérèse refers to Jesus as her spouse. How can men relate to this idea of being the spouse of Christ?
