Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures

Friday of the Twenty First Week of Ordinary Time

All Out of Oil

With motherly love, I will await your arrival in Heaven. The drops of oil resulting from your sufferings will fall on the earth into the lamps that are either extinguished or barely flickering, and they will ignite my Flame of Love. (Mary) (October 5, 1962)

Today’s Readings: Then the door was locked. Afterwards the other virgins came and said, ‘Lord, Lord, open the door for us!’ But he said in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, I do not know you.’ Therefore, stay awake, for you know neither the day nor the hour.” (Matthew 25)

Prayer Meditation- O Lord, I know so many who feel like they are all out of oil! The bad news, the media, our own sinfulness and lack of perseverance, our losing sight of You as we look around at the waves and the water, all threaten to take us under. Lord, help us to look up and fix our eyes on You, even if we cannot see You except barely with the eyes of our hearts and You seem long delayed! Help us, to offer our sufferings for the salvation of souls like drops of oil on the lamps of the multitude of souls separated from You! We may be poured out like a libation but combined with Your Sacrifice and in union with You we truly will be fighting the good fight of faith! (2 Timothy 4)
