“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 12:24




Jesus said,

“I tell you, most solemnly,

unless a wheat grain falls on the ground and dies,

it remains only a single grain;

but if it dies,

it yields a rich harvest.”


– John 12:24 (JB)






Jesus teaches us

and encourages us.

He desires us to see every type of suffering and contradiction

as a sharing in His cross,

which redeems us and exalts us.


To be supernaturally effective in sowing love, peace and joy

under any circumstance – good or bad –

I have to die to myself,

forgetting my comfort

and shedding my selfishness..






"If the grain of wheat does not die,

it remains unfruitful.

Don’t you want to be a grain of wheat,

to die through mortification,

and to yield a rich harvest?

May Jesus bless your wheatfield!"


– St. Josemaria Escrivá






Lord Jesus, help me forget my comfort and shed my selfishness.

Lord, help me be more like You.
