TODAY’S WORD…

.

“Lord, to whom can we go?

You have the words of eternal life.”

.

– John 6:68 (NRSV)

REFLECTION…

.

Lord, to whom can we go?

You have the words of eternal life.

To whom can we go indeed –

our life does not make sense if we are not following our Lord closely!

.

Anyone who follows You, Lord, will have the light of life.

Such a person is like a tree that is planted beside the flowing waters,

that yields its fruit in due season,

and whose leaves never fade. (Resp. Psalm, Ps 1:1-4)

.

Our successes and gains that boost our ego,

any human happiness that goes to make up our earthly treasure,

all is worthless compared to Christ’s eternal promise.

.

Truly we can say to Our Lord in our own personal prayer:

Stay with us, because our souls are full of darkness and You are the one true light;

You alone can satisfy the longings that consume us.

For we know that above everything that is beautiful and good, the greatest is this:

to possess You forever, O Lord.” (St. Gregory Nazianzen)

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Come Lord Jesus, fill me with the fire of Your love

and remove all that is pointless in my life; all that leads me away from You.

.
