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

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

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

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

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.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“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 wheat field!”

.

– St. Josemaria Escrivá

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Lord Jesus,

help me forget my comfort and shed my selfishness.

.

Help me accept God’s will as a blessing,

so that when there is suffering in my life, it will bring me closer to You;

and when there is fullness, I will gladly share it with others.

.

Lord, help me do this with joy in my heart

– with the joy that only You can bring. Amen.

.
