PRAYER IS A SOURCE OF HAPPINESS

Come hither all who wish to believe! The Celestial Spirits are come to announce great things! My children, God is opening up His treasures so as to distribute them for your benefit. 0 incredulous Man!

If only you knew what a great benefit to our hearts is faith and how it induces the soul to repentance and prayer! Prayer!

Ah! How touchingBlue-Butterfly-822967 are the words which fall from the lips of one who prays! Prayer is the Divine Dew which lessens the excessive heat of our passions. Favorite daughter of faith, it leads us along the pathway which takes us to God. In moments of reclusion and solitude you will find yourselves together with the Lord. For you the mysteries disappear because He reveals them to you.

Apostles of thought, life is meant for you. Your soul liberates itself from matter and launches itself into the infinite and etheric worlds which poor humanity does not know. March forward! March forward along the path of prayer and you will hear the voices of the angels! What harmony! No longer have the confused noises and strident sounds of the Earth; but the sound of the lyres of the archangels, the soft and gentle voices of the Seraphim, which are more delicate than the morning breezed when it plays among the foliage of the woodlands.

Amongst what delights you will walk! Your earthly language cannot express such bliss, so quickly does it enter into all your pores, so alive and refreshing is the spring from which, through prayer, you are able to drink. Sweet voices and heady perfumes are what the soul hears and breathes when you launch yourself into prayer, into those unknown and inhabited spheres! All aspirations are divine when liberated from carnal desires.

You too can pray, as did Jesus, while taking His Cross from Golgotha to Calvary. So take up your burden, and you will feel sweet emotions which will pass through your soul, even though you bear the weight of some infamous cross. He was going to die, but only in order to live the Celestial Life in the House of His Father. – SAINT AUGUSTIN (Paris, 1861).

From the Gospel According to Spiritism. Chapter 27

A CHRISTIAN IS RECOGNISABLE BY HIS WORKS

“Not all of those who say: Lord! Lord! Will enter into Heaven, but only those who do the Will of my Father, who is in Heaven.” Listen to these words of the Master, all those who repel the Spiritist Doctrine as the work of the devil.

Open your ears because the moment to listen has arrived. Is it sufficient to carry the uniform of the Lord in order to be His faithful servant?

Is it enough to say: ‘I am a Christian’, for anyone to be a follower of Christ? Search for the true Christians and you will recognize them by their works. “A good tree cannot give forth bad fruits, nor a bad tree good fruits.” “Every tree that does not give forth good fruits will be cut down and cast into the fire.” These are the words of the Master.

Disciples of Christ, understand them well! What kind of fruits should be given by the tree of Christianity, which is a mighty tree, whose leafy branches cover part of the world with shade, but does not as yet shelter all who should seek refuge around it? Those from the Tree of Life are fruits of life, hope and faith. Christianity, as it has done for many centuries, continues to preach these divine virtues. It uses all its strength to distribute its fruits, but so few pick them! The Tree is always good, but the gardeners are bad. They tried to mold it to their own ideas, to prune it to their necessities. They cut it, diminished it and mutilated it. Having become sterile it does not give forth bad fruits, because it gives forth no fruits at all. The thirsty traveler who stops under its branches looking for the fruits of hope, which are capable of restoring strength and courage, sees only bare branches foretelling a coming storm. In vain he asks for the fruits from the Tree of Life. Only dry leaves fall at his feet. The hands of Man have so tampered with it that it has become scorched. My dearly beloved, open then your hearts and ears. Cultivate this Tree of Life whose fruits give eternal life. The One who planted it incites you to treat it with love and even yet you will see it give an abundance of its divine fruits. Conserve it just as it was when Christ gave it to you. Do not mutilate it. It wants to cast its immense shade over the Universe, so do not cut its branches. Its tasty fruits fall abundantly so as to satiate the hungry traveler who wishes to reach the end of his journey. Do not gather these fruits in order to leave them to rot, so they are of no use to anyone. “Many are called, but few are chosen.”  This is because there are monopolizes of the Bread of Life, as there are also of material bread. Do not be one of them: the Tree that gives good fruits must give to everyone. Go then, and seek those who are hungry, lead them under the leafy branches of the Tree of Life and share with them the shelter it offers. “You cannot collect grapes from amongst the thorns.” My brothers and sisters, turn away from those who call to you in order to show you the thorns of the way; instead, follow those who will lead you under the shade of the Tree of Life. The Divine Savior, the Just par excellence, spoke, and His words will never die; “Not all who say: Lord! Lord! Will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, but only those who do the Will of my Father who is in Heaven.”

May the Lord of blessings bless you; may the God of Light illuminate you; may the Tree of Life offer you its abundant fruits! Believe and pray. – SIMON (Bordeaux, 1863).
