Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Memorial of Saint Francis Xavier
Use all your strength to bring sinners to me. Give no thought to anything else. With your entire soul, desire that My consecrated souls always look upon Me and are never distracted by worldly things. They must see My sorrowful eyes and be immersed in Me. If they look into My eyes with a repentant heart, I will make them holier with the rays of My grace. By plunging them into the love of My Heart, I will give them new birth provided they trust Me fully. (Jesus) (April 8, 1962)
The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few;
so ask the master of the harvest
to send out laborers for his harvest.” (Matthew 9)
Prayer Meditation- O Lord, we may be few, those of us who respond to Your Call but even in our weakness we are actually working in Your Strength! The harvest seems even greater now in this world of growing darkness but You desire that we give all we have to bring the lost to You. O Lord we need laborers who are on fire with the Flame of Your Love! O Lord we know You will be gracious to all who cry out to You (Isaiah 30) May our hearts also be moved with pity for all the troubled and abandoned in this world (Matthew 9) because a bruised reed You will not break! (Isaiah 42). Break our hearts for what breaks Yours!
