“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Luke 7:6

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

“Lord…I am not worthy to have You come under my roof.”

.

– Luke 7:6 (NRSV)

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

Am I ever worthy to receive Jesus; to have Him inside my heart?

.

Whenever I humbly call out to Him in faith and in truth,

He is always so willing to rush into my heart

because He loves me beyond my understanding.

It is only through His divine mercy that He comes gladly to me

to fill me with true love, peace and hope.

.

“Lord…I am not worthy to have You come under my roof.”

These are the sentiments, which we prayerfully express in truth just before receiving Holy Communion.

These words should truly reflect our interior disposition of faith and humility,

when we call upon the Lord to enter our heart and have mercy on our soul.

QUOTE…

.

“Yes, we are not worthy that Jesus should stay at our house or dwell under our roof,

but this is what He desires.

.

He wants us to abide in Him so that he can abide in us and grant us a share in His eternal life.

.

He wants to give us the fruit of the tree of life,

place the crown of life on our heads,

feed us with the hidden manna on our New Exodus,

give us a share in His kingly power,

write our names in the Book of Life,

make us a pillar in the New Temple of God,

and have us sit beside Him on God’s throne.”

.

– Fr. Jason Mitchell LC

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

I am not worthy, Lord,

but please come inside my heart…and take over.
