98. The Preserving of the Human Race in the State of Innocence

1. The human race is preserved by propagation. When therewere only two human beings, they received God's command (Gen.1:28), "Increase and multiply and fill the earth." Hence,in the state of innocence, there would have been generation.

2. And this generation would have been accomplished as itis now accomplished, but with orderly tendency, and with fullsubjection to reason, without any unruly passion.

"Happy is the youth, because he has time before him to do good. "

"The Lord has always revealed to mortals the treasures of his wisdom and his spirit, but now that the face of evil bares itself more and more, so does the Lord bare his treasures more."

"It is better to be burdened and in company with the strong than to be unburdened and with the weak. When you are burdened you are close to God, your strength, who abides with the afflicted. When you are relieved of the burden you are close to yourself, your own weakness; for virtue and strength of soul grow and are confirmed in the trials of patience."
St John of the Cross, OCD - Doctor of the Church
