“For if, as Paul says, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God, and if the man who does not know Scripture does not know the power and wisdom of God, then ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.”
How well do I know Christ? What can I do to know Him better?

26. PREPARING THE SOUL
26.1 The cities which would not be converted.
Christ continues to pass through our cities and towns, showering innumerable blessings upon us. To know how to listen to his Will and fulfill it right away is of capital importance in our lives. Nothing is more important…God is not to blame when the faith fails to spring up among men. The reason is to be found in the unreadiness of those who have heard the divine word. Holy Scripture calls this resistance to grace hardness of heart. Men sometimes pose intellectual difficulties as inhibiting their growth in faith when the real problem lies in their lack of desire. Perhaps they just do not want to abandon some bad habit. They may not be willing to struggle seriously to overcome some defect that impedes their friendship with the Lord.
