True Joy and Justice in the Eyes of God

Description: This week Dan, Melissa and Dr. Anthony Lilles discuss St. Thérèse’s meaning of true joy and justice in the eyes of God, and the source of our merits.

Topics/Questions covered in the show:

  • What does St. Thérèse mean when she says that she does not want to “lay up merits for heaven”?
  • Is there a difference between happiness and joy?
  • Can we console the heart of Christ?
  • Why does St. Thérèse say that all of our justice is stained in God’s eyes?
  • Christ is the source of all merit.
  • Little, imperfect acts of love are amplified by Jesus’ merits, love and grace. So, by doing these little acts of love we are creating space for God to do something beautiful in our lives.
