Series 3, Ep. 28: Behold the Man
The Daily Decade for the Commemoration of the Flight into Egypt and Ash Wednesday is on the Devotion to the Holy Face and what it represents to us, both human and Divine, as the chief manifestation of Christ’s Incarnation among men.
God love you!
Lent began today at Sunrise. Remember St. Thomas Aquinas definition of “effeminicacy” when you shrink from your mortifications:
Perseverance is deserving of praise because thereby a man does not forsake a good on account of long endurance of difficulties and toils: and it is directly opposed to this, seemingly, for a man to be ready to forsake a good on account of difficulties which he cannot endure. This is what we understand by effeminacy, because a thing is said to be “soft” if it readily yields to the touch… properly speaking an effeminate man is one who withdraws from good on account of sorrow caused by lack of pleasure, yielding as it were to a weak motion.Summa II.II:138,1
