I mean something really serious. You are constantly feeling guilty, and the guilt keeps you from approaching Our Lord through fear. Maximilian Kolbe, whose feast day is today, has some advice. Whenever you feel guilty, even if it is because you have consciously committed a sin, a serious sin, something you have kept doing many, many times, never let the devil deceive you by allowing him to discourage you.
Whenever you feel guilty, offer all your guilt to the Immaculate, without analyzing it or examining it, as something that belongs to her… My beloved, may every fall, even if it is serious and habitual sin, always become for us a small step toward a higher degree of perfection.
In fact, the only reason why the Immaculate permits us to fall is to cure us from our self-conceit, from our pride, to make us humble and thus make us docile to the divine graces. The devil, instead, tries to inject in us discouragement and internal depression in those circumstances, which is, in fact, nothing else than our pride surfacing again.
If we knew the depth of our poverty, we would not be at all surprised by our falls, but rather astonished, and we would thank God, after sinning, for not allowing us to fall even deeper and still more frequently.
Learning Humility In other words, St. We must first learn humility before we can make any real progress in holiness. We would have no idea how pathetic and weak we really are, or how dependent we are on the grace of God for even the smallest good act.
A lesson in the school of Christ Our Lady, seat of Wisdom, pray for us. The painful lessons of humility are only the first stage in our advance in holiness.
Whoever holds her fast will obtain glory…. If we despair, an act of prideful self-reliance, we will fall away. But if we learn humility, we will be saved. Persevere in grace and wait patiently on Our Lord. He will deliver you in due time.
