For those of you who wish to have a child “by force!” Leave it to God, because he knows when the right time will come. Some people, even if their life is not very ordered from a spiritual point of view, “push” God to give them a child when they want. In His love, God gives them their desired child but with time they will see that, growing up, he becomes anxious because he inherited the passions of his parents, and they, themselves will fall into a greater state of anxiety, because they have conceived a child who resembles them in their passions, since they did not tried to purify themselves before asking for a child.
It depends on our will if we want to meet Him or if we choose to mind our own business. We are free. This is the great privilege we were given in the day of our creation. This is the greatest mystery of our world. God has found through freedom the ideal form of mankind that can feel free and independent, even with the risk of being deprived of Him.
Be kind with everybody but especially with your wife. Avoid considering whether her complaints are true or not. Care only about one thing: avoid making her sad, maintain peace in your home so that she would give you all her attention and you shall confess her all your sorrows so that you may find in her the consolation needed.
Although virtues are considered qualities of the soul, they are also a means for the strengthening of our body. However, passions are of a different nature: some are of the soul, because they are only loved by the soul and others are of the body, because they are the delight of the body. In other words, both in the first and second category the soul and the body are not aware of the other’s presence.
