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




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)






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.






“…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






Holy Spirit, come into my heart,

take over my soul,

fill me with Your light,

and make me more like Jesus.
