Human Beings

51zqkusjpil._ac_sy400_

Human beings were made to know, love, and serve God. This is how we have success and achieve happiness. If a man tries to accomplish any other goal with his life, he will ultimately be frustrated and end in failure. If one were to attempt to use a paintbrush as a hammer, he will not have much success. But when one uses a paintbrush to apply paint, he achieves the desired result and becomes happy. Life is this simple.

This is why we must always bear in mind our purpose in this life — knowing, loving, and serving God. When we remember this simple truth, it gives the necessary motivation to accomplish our duties and ultimately achieve happiness.

I need to pray, but I am too tired. I need to study the truths of my religion, but I am too busy. I need to amend my life and root out my vices, but it is too hard.

Then you will not be happy. You are a paintbrush pointlessly pounding penny nails. Your life will end in frustration and failure.

Instead, consider that no matter how hard knowing, loving, and serving God may appear, it is the end for which you were made and the only possible means of obtaining happiness.

  1. Thank you, Thomas. So simple, yet so true. ❀️
    Thanks also for your videos with Father Jenkins. I never miss one!
    Clarity and Truth are such a delicacy these days, that we are pretty much starving. The Lord bless you both for your time, work and love, as well as bless your loved ones.
    By the way, I absolutely love the Ave Maria you chose for your program. Which is it, and interpreted by whom? I’d like to listen to and learn to sing the full version… It’s so beautiful!
    Take care and keep up the holy work for Our Lord and Our Lady!
    Best regards from Switzerland 😁

    1. Hello, Alessandra! Thank you for all the kind words, and thank you for watching us in Switzerland! I told Father Jenkins of your comment and he was very happy to hear it. He sends his regards and says God bless you πŸ™‚

      We’ve had a lot of people ask about the opening Ave Maria. It is actually a recording from Father Jenkins’ Cleveland area parish choir that was made many years ago. The full recording is apparently lost, and all we have now is the little snippet that you hear at the beginning of our shows.

      1. Thank you so much for your answer and for Father’s blessing. I’m truly very honored πŸ˜ŠπŸ’™
        As for the Ave Maria, at least we have the snippet πŸ™πŸΌ So, so beautiful…
        Praying for you both. You give us much comfort & hope. Dieu vous bénisse 😁

    Dear Mr. Naegele: So glad to know you are back to blogging again. I  occasionally check out your site. — Funny, I just circulated your Ask and Receive and How to Pray with Fr. Jenkins’ Purging of Priesthood and SSPV’s  John xxiii Mass Changes this past  first Friday. Your  How to Pray is so inspiring to … how to pray!  No pun intended. Embarrassing to say, but, I myself had forgotten how to really pray, thanks to V2 indoctrination. Amen!!

    Sigh. 😦

     

    This latest is worth circulating, too. Thanks and keep on blogging, pls.
