“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 17:24,26

TODAY’S WORD…

.

“Father,

I want those You have given Me

to be with Me where I am, and to see My glory,

the glory You have given me

because You loved me before the creation of the world.

.

I have made You known to them,

and will continue to make You known

in order that the love You have for me

may be in them

and that I myself may be in them.”

.

– John 17:24,26 (NIV)

REFLECTION…

.

Jesus – the Alpha and Omega; the Beginning and the End –

prays to the Father

for all of us who know Him.

.

He prays that we will one day be with Him,

in His perpetual light,

and share in His glory, forever.

.

Jesus emphasises

that He will continue to make the Father known to us,

and that He too will always be with us.

He will do so by sending the Holy Spirit,

who we Christians have received through the Sacrament of Baptism.

.

If we allow Him to,

the Spirit will instil a burning love and faith in us;

He will console us and counsel us.

He will give us the strength

to overcome all that the evil one throws at us

in his determination to draw us away from God

and from Our Lord’s promise of life everlasting in His Glorious Presence.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Come Holy Spirit, come…come and take over.
