Filed under 30 Days T Lisieux, Dan Burke, DI Radio, Show Notes

Description: This week Dan, Melissa and Dr. Anthony Lilles examine the ray of hope St. Thérèse sends to us through her oblation to merciful love in speaking of instantaneous purification; the Lord's mercy when preparing a soul to meet Him.

Topics/Questions covered in the show:

  • What is the significance of instantaneous purification?
  • How does Pelagianism compare to St. Thérèse's thought of instantaneous purification?
  • If God can purify us in an instant, why should we strive to make a perfect act of love?
  • Why should we respond to the gifts God has given us?
  • Why does St. Thérèse offer herself as a “victim of holocaust” to God's merciful love?
