Why to Look Foward to a Peaceful and Cozy Autumn

As the days get shorter and cooler, I along with many people look forward to coziness.  Does that sound silly?  Well, I'm going to tell you why it's not.

The principle of the Incarnation is the relationship between the body and soul, the natural and supernatural, the human and Divine.  It is a beautiful mystery to meditate on because within it lies the secret of happiness.  We spend our whole lives seeking happiness!  Why does the relationship between body and soul hold the key to happiness?  Because God designed our human nature to coexist perfectly with our eternal soul, intellect and will.  And when it does we are happy, recognizing that perfection exists in God and in every good thing that He made.  It is very encouraging even in sufferings when we realize the brilliance of this idea.

Why coziness?  Coziness is a physical sensation of peace.  And peace is the state of soul only attained by those in a state of grace.  Perfect peace is in Heaven.  Do we desire Heaven?  Then why not also desire as much heaven as this earth can offer?

What is coziness?  Well, if you're like me it's a loving family, crackling fire, warm spicy tea, good company and great conversation, reading or knitting.  If you're a little more energetic it might be picnics and hayrides, fine meals and holiday gatherings.  It is a result of the physical comfort and security of order.  An impressive ability of those who have real peace is to maintain and spread calm even when challenged by chaotic and revolutionary people.

I can't think of a better season to create a peaceful ambiance within the soul and the home than autumn!  And what better artist than the Catholic lady?

Are you interested in the idea of an ordered, Christian society?  You need this book!
Do you look forward to a peaceful and cozy autumn??
