Exterminate the “Nag Bug”! The Gentle Virtue of Self-Control

Here's an excellent article that touched on a little bit of what we discussed today:

Exterminate the “Nag Bug”! The Gentle Virtue of Self-Control

I really enjoyed this quote towards the end of the article:

"The great medieval mystic, Bernard of Clairvaux, taught that there are four levels of love: Love of self for self’s sake, love of God (and others) for self’s sake, love of God (and others) for their own sake, and love of self for God’s sake.
I realized that, to love someone for his own sake (rather than what I need from that person), is a liberating choice. It keeps me from trying to control another human being . . . and keeps my focus on how I can be a blessing to the one I love, rather than one more problem to manage. Even if the other person never changes (a real possibility), this approach minimizes the effect of the problem in the marriage, and on the family. It also gives God a chance to work in the heart of the other person."

St. Luke, the Evangelist

Father, you chose Luke the Evangelist to reveal by preaching and writing the mystery of your love for the poor.  Unite in one heart and spirit all who glory in your name, and let all nations come to see your salvation.  Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Blessed John Henry Newman

Cardinal Newman's motto, Cor ad cor loquitur, or "Heart speaks unto heart", gives us an insight into his understanding of the Christian life as a call to holiness, experienced as the profound desire of the human heart to enter into intimate communion with the Heart of God.
