Be A Light
This drop of oil squeezed out by your sufferings, when united to My merits, will fall on those souls who still do not have a lamp. They will be astounded and will seek its cause, and they will find the road that leads to salvation.” (Jesus) (November 10, 1962)
Today’s Gospel: Jesus said to his disciples,
“Is a lamp brought in to be placed under a bushel
or under a bed,
and not to be placed on a lampstand?
For there is nothing hidden except to be made
nothing is secret except to come to light.
Anyone who has ears to hear ought to hear.
Prayer Meditation- Lord it seems like the darkness is winning. I sense discouragement all around- people are just beat down in the diabolical disorientation (Sister Lucia) that is our world today. And yet You have asked us to put our lamps on the lampstand- this is no time to retreat from being witnesses to the Gospel. There are so many souls who probably would not even know where they can find a lamp let alone how to light those lamps so that they can find their way to the narrow and broken road that leads to You. Lord we feel crushed on all sides (2 Corinthians 4:8-10) but we cannot give into despair. Squeeze Lord every drop of oil from our sufferings united to Your merits to fall on the souls who are so lost so that they will indeed find this road that leads to salvation.
