Felix Culpa happy fall . “For God judged it better to bring good out of evil than not to permit any evil to exist.” Augustine . . A year ago today, I would have never been able to tolerate Felix Culpa. It would have gone against everything I'd known and felt. Today however, I know more than ever, that God is good, so merciful, so kind, so loving. . He has walked through the valley of the shadow of death with me. He has sat in silence with me when there were no words to describe or express my pain. He has been my strength when I had none. He has soothed me when I felt only chaos and fear. He has now filled me with his hope, and given me a beautiful future. . And so at this place, and at this time, I am able to say Felix Culpa. . You, Holy Father have brought good in and through and to me out of evil. You, Merciful Father saw what you wanted to do in me and allowed evil to exist and touch me to produce good. You, oh Sweet Father are using every tear and sorrow to produce in me the Christ-like qualities that are eternal. . Blessed Trinity, I am grateful. . Have your way in my life forever more.💜 . #felixculpa #joy #grief #purpose #mercy #eternal #strength #haveyourwaylord #pain #evil #augustine #suffering

What is Felix Culpa?

hi_im_summer

@reebtomyers (in Christian theology) the sin of Adam viewed as fortunate, because it brought about the blessedness of the Redemption (oxford dict) For me it's the view that evil and sin--pain and suffering are directly good because of the result of growth, connectedness and peace it m created. Its what Joseph said, "what you intended for evil, God intended for good'.

@hi_im_summer thank you. I grew up going to the Episcopal Church but I somehow never heard that term before.

@reebtomyers I think it may be more a Catholic theology.

reebtomyers

@hi_im_summer ok. That makes sense.
