“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Luke 4:42

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

When daylight came, Jesus left the house

and made His way to a lonely place.

.

– Luke 4:42

REFLECTION…

.

Jesus was a busy man carrying out a Divine Mission.

and He too needed time to reflect quietly,

to pray privately,

to speak to the Father

away from interruptions, noise and distractions.

.

As in everything else, here too, He gives us good example.

.

We all need to find the time and a quiet place,

where we can pray and reflect.

.

St. Josemaria Escriva comments:

“You ask: To pray is to talk with God. But about what?

.

About what? About Him, about yourself:

joys, sorrows, successes and failures,

noble ambitions, daily worries, weaknesses!

And acts of thanksgiving and petitions:

and love and reparation…”

…and we will find peace and consolation and truth,

and that incomparable joy in the Lord!

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Lord, lead me to that quiet place – everyday.

.

Come Holy Spirit,

I welcome You every day to take over my heart and my mind.

Remove everything that is not from You,

and fill me with Your love and Your peace.

.

Come Holy Spirit.
