Well, if your "Sacred Tradition" claims that God delighted in bloody sacrifices, justified slavery and the oppression of women, then my message belongs here.
That is what happens when people throw out "Sacred Tradition"...
Samuel means “obedience to God”; Saul symbolizes the mind, which is likened to a king because it is endowed with free will and can rule over the senses. So, in 1 Sam. 15:1-3, the Lord is teaching us that if we want to be kings over Israel, that is, be deemed worthy to see God, - Israel means “mind that sees God,” - then we need to take vengeance for what the Devil (Amalec) did when he had us under his will in the land of ignorance and the passions (Egypt). In another sense, Amalec signifies the fleshly passions, which oppose the mind from obeying God’s commandments. These passions, God commands Saul, that is the mind, to utterly destroy and “spare nothing belonging to” it, by slaying both anger (man), desire (woman), and their actions in the outer and inner man (infant and suckling). Also, eliminate all thoughts (sheep) and excitements (calf) from our heart with all their images (camel) of desires (ass).
... they cannot understand the Spirit of the Law.
PS. Hey that commandment to Saul is very relevant to us today! Who would have thought... only St. Maximus
