7th Sunday after Pentecost 2021
The story of King Solomon is read in the Divine Office during these days and it is a reminder to us of how far we can fall if we are unfaithful. The road to hell is paved with good intentions which were never brought to fruition. Here are the six steps that the will takes in accomplishing any action: wish, intention, consent, election, use and joy over the good achieved. The saints are diligent in following all the steps to gain the supernatural gifts of grace which brings them to heaven. Their good intentions produce good fruit.
