“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 42:2




My soul thirsts for God,
for the living God.
When shall I come and behold
the face of God?


– Psalm 42:2 (NRSV)






To enter the dwelling of the Lord,

a soul has to be clean and humble.


For us to be able to see Jesus,

good dispositions are needed

and our souls need purification.


On contemplating Jesus we ought to purify our soul.

That Christ you see is not Jesus.

It is only the pitiful image that your blurred eyes are able to form…

Purify yourself.

Clarify your sight with humility and penance.

Then…the pure light of Love will not be denied you.

And you will have perfect vision.

The image you see will be really His: His! (St. Josemaria Escriva)


Lent is a good opportunity

to intensify our love with penitential deeds and loving altruistic sacrifice,

which dispose the soul towards receiving light from God

thus helping us to see the true face of Christ.






My soul thirsts for You, my Living God.

Lord, remove all my darkness and fill me with Your Light, so I can behold Your face and Your truth.
