"In loving Me you come to know more of My Truth, and the more you know, the more intolerable pain and sorrow you will feel when I am offended."
– Jesus to St. Catherine of Siena
And how subtly the stifling of conscience occurs. It's not an overnight thing, but starts with deceiving ourselves for some perceived advantage/pleasure in little ways and then in bigger ways until we are fully blind and stepping off a cliff.
Its loss can er so subtle that those who no longer follow it, will insist that they are being guided by it. Always enjoy your comments. Thank you Barb.
