“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 2 Corinthians 3:18

TODAY’S WORD…

.

With our unveiled faces reflecting,

like mirrors,

the brightness of the Lord,

we all grow brighter and brighter

as we are turned into the image that we reflect;

this is the work of the Lord who is Spirit.

.

– 2 Corinthians 3:18 (JB)

REFLECTION…

.

What a joyous declaration this is!

.

Just as Moses’s face reflected the splendour of God

after being with Him on Mount Sinai (see Exodus 34:29-35),

when we contemplate Christ in faith

we too will, as our life unfolds, reflect His glory.

.

Moreover, whereas the radiance of Moses

was a passing thing,

ours will steadily increase.

.

We are turned into the image that we reflect,

and we become increasingly identified with Christ,

through docility

and submission to the influence of His grace on our souls.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“…it is the Holy Spirit who,

with His inspirations,

gives a supernatural tone to our thoughts,

desires and actions.

It is He who leads us to receive Christ’s teaching

and to assimilate it in a profound way.

It is He who gives us the light

by which we perceive our personal calling

and the strength to carry out all that God expects of us.

.

If we are docile to the Holy Spirit,

the image of Christ will be formed more and more fully in us ,

and we will be brought closer, every day,

to God the Father.”

.

– St. Josemaria Escrivá

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Holy Spirit, come into my heart,

take over my soul,

fill me with Your light,

and make me more like Jesus.
