On the bright side, those of us who have been chosen, from all eternity,
to live in these times will be granted the graces we need to be
faithful, if we accept them, and will have a more glorious crown in the
Kingdom for having to struggle with the devil unchained. "Where sin
abounds, grace does more abound." And furthermore, God is not mocked.
"...Bud forth as the rose planted by the brooks of waters. Give ye a sweet odor as frankincense. Send forth flowers, as the lily...and bring forth leaves in grace, and praise with canticles, and bless the Lord in his works."
Albert, by the grace of God, Patriarch of Jerusalem, to his beloved sons, Brocard and the other religious hermits who live under his obedience, near the fountain of Elias, on Mt. Carmel, health in the Lord, and the blessings of the Holy Spirit.
