Meditate

He who does not meditate acts as one who never looks into the mirror and so does not bother to put himself in order, since he can be dirty without knowing it. The person who meditates and turns his thoughts to God who is the mirror of the soul, seeks to know his defects and tries to correct them, moderates himself in his impulses and puts his conscience in order. Padre Pio

Gluttony

Never rise from the table without having given thanks to the Lord. If we act in this way we need have no fear of the wretched sin of gluttony.  Padre Pio

worldly possessions

The love of worldly possessions is a sort of bird line, which entangles the soul, and prevents it flying to God.  St. Augustine

the Spirit of God within

The soul united to God and transformed in him draws from within God a divine breath, much like the most high God himself. And God, abiding in the soul, breathes forth the life of the soul as its exemplar. This I take to be what Paul meant when he said: because you are children of God, God has sent to the Spirit of his Son into your heart’s crying, Abba, Father; this is what takes place in those who have achieved perfection.  (St. John of the Cross)

Hosea

Hosea, according to the Bible’s book of Hosea, Hosea prophesied about 2750 years ago, during the reigns of the last two kings of Israel, shortly before Israel was conquered – and destroyed – by the Assyrian Empire. Hosea’s prophecies spoke of the desolations that would result from being unfaithful to God, and of God’s promise to later restore Israel.

Hosea was a native of Israel. His father’s name was Beeri. Hosea regarded Israel, which at that time referred to the northern part of the Jewish homeland, as being corrupt and evil. Hosea prophesied during the concluding years of Jeroboam II (about 783 – 743 BC). Hosea was more tender-hearted than the stern Amos. It is easy to see from his writing that he loved the people whom he was compelled to condemn.

Hosea’s home life is described and it is a mirror to the nation of Israel and its relationship to God at that time. Hosea’s wife had left home for a life of prostitution, and Israel had turned away from God and pursued false gods. But Hosea continued to love his wife, and finally brought her home again, so God would also continue to love Israel and one day again restore favor to Israel.

Hosea, means “May the Lord save”. His book is the first of the Minor Prophets and the longest (14 chapters).
