HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAR
THOMAS M. FAHY
July 22, 2021
Feast of St. Mary Magdalene
Be faithful to Me, and My Will shall be your life, the hand that leads you,
the feet that walk, and the mouth that speaks—in short, in you It will make up for everything.
One great way to describe Thomas Fahy is faithfulness. He was extremely faithful to his God, his Religion, the Divine Will, his wife, Kathy, to his friends, and to all who loved the Divine Will, and even to strangers.
He also developed the ‘constant thought of God,’ Who was the most important Person in his life, other than his wife, Kathy!
I just wanted to put this out to wish Tom a very happy 82nd earthly birthday! So, this Snippet will be about faithfulness!

“You ought to know that I have acted with you as a king who begins to love a friend who is very different from him in status; but his love is so great, that He has decided to make his friend like himself. Now, this king cannot do everything with one stroke and make his friend like himself—rather he does it little by little. First, he prepares a royal palace for him, similar to his own; then he sends decorations with which to adorn the royal palace. He forms a little army for him; then he gives him half of his Kingdom, so that he can say: “What you possess, I possess. I am king—and so are you.” But each time the king gives him his gifts, He looks at his faithfulness; and giving the gift provides him an occasion for new happiness, greater glory and honor for himself, and a new celebration. If the king had wanted to give to his friend, all at once, all that he has given him little by little, he would have embarrassed his friend, because he had not been taught how to rule. But, little by little, through his faithfulness, he has come to be instructed, so that everything becomes easy for him.”

“Just take a brief look around: Everything takes place between pairs: You have eyes, but if you did not have an external light that enlightens you, you could see nothing. You have hands, but if you did not have the things that you need to do your work, you would do nothing, and so on with all the rest. Now, this is how I want sanctity in the soul: between her and Me—between the two of us. I, on the one side; she, on the other. I, giving My own life and communicating My sanctity to her as her faithful companion—she, receiving it as My faithful and inseparable companion. In this way, she would be the eye that sees, and I the sun that gives her light—she the mouth, and I the word; she the hands, and I the One who gives the work to let her act; she the foot, and I the step; she the heart, and I the heartbeat. But do you know who produces this sanctity? It is My Will alone that keeps in order the purpose of Creation. It is the sanctity in My Will that maintains perfect balance between creatures and their Creator. These are the true images that came forth from Me.”

“Now, see how much I need these souls who live in My Will. Since I have destined them to be like skin to the body of My Church, and like circulation of life for all My members, they will be the ones who will give proper growth to the members which have not grown; they will heal the wounded members, and restore the freshness, the beauty, and the splendor of the whole Mystical Body by their continuous living in My Will, making it completely similar to My Head, which will sit in full majesty over all those members. This is why the end of days cannot come if I do not have these souls who live as though dissolved in My Will—they interest Me more than anything else. What impression would this Mystical Body make in the Heavenly Jerusalem without them? And if this is what interests Me more than anything, it must also interest you more than anything else, if you love Me. From now on, I will give to your acts done in My Will the virtue of circulating life to the whle Mystical Body of the Church. And just as blood circulates in the human body, so your acts, spread out within the immensity of My Will, will spread over all of the members of the Mystical Body, covering them like skin and giving them their proper growth. So, be faithful and attentive.”
