A tourist complimented the local fishermen on the quality of their fish and asked how long it took him to catch them.
«Not very long.» they answered in unison.
«Why didn’t you stay out longer and catch more?»
The fishermen explained that their small catches were sufficient to meet their needs and those of their families.
«But what do you do with the rest of your time?»
May an angel of God, my child, follow you and show you the path of God and of your salvation. Amen; so be it. I pray that God gives you health of soul, for this is a special gift of sonship which is bestowed only upon those souls that have been completely devoted to the worship and love of God.
The world attracts the youth like a magnet; worldly things have great power over the newly enlightened soul that just started to find its bearings and see its purpose in life and the duty calling him. «Friendship with the world is enmity with God. Whoever, therefore, wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.»  God has stored up pleausres for eternity, for both He and our soul are eternal. There is no comparison between the pleasures of the world and the pure pleasures of God.
