“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 1:39

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“Come, and you will see.”

.

– John 1:39 (NIV)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

“Come, and you will see.”

is Jesus’ tender invitation

to those of us seeking to know Him better.

It is an invitation to begin that intimate relationship

that we may be seeking.

.

Christian faith

can never be just a matter of intellectual curiosity.

It affects one’s whole life:

and a person cannot understand it

unless he or she really live it.

.

That is why our Lord invites

those who wish to know more about Him

to “come and see” where and how He lives

and to spend time in His company.

.

Accepting our Lord’s invitation

is an act of hope and humility.

By doing so and ‘going’,

we will learn through personal first-hand experience,

because words alone

cannot describe that which we seek,

or what we will eventually find.

.

If we accept this invitation,

then, by applying our mind to the contemplation of divine things,

by desiring to taste the sweetness of God,

by assiduous prayer,

we shall ‘see’.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Lord Jesus,

You are always inviting me

to spend time with You,

and it was through such an invitation

that I started to get to know You;

that I began to comprehend Your Truth.

.

Lord, now that I have found You,

I want to stay by Your side,

I want to be everywhere with You,

I want to know more and more about You,

I want to never stop listening to Your voice.

.

Lord, now that I have found You,

I know that I am nothing without You.

.

I love You, Lord Jesus.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Here I am, Lord, right by Your side!

.

.

.

YEAR OF FAITH 2012-2013

FROM THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH…

.

In all of His life Jesus presents Himself as our model.

He is “the perfect man”,

who invites us to become His disciples and follow Him.

.

In humbling Himself, He has given us an example to imitate,

through His prayer He draws us to pray,

and by His poverty He calls us to accept freely

the privation and persecutions that may come our way.

.

[CCC 520]
