Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Friday of the Third Week of Advent
Burning and Shining Lamp
Jesus: “I choose you, My little one, to be the bearer of My Divine Mercy. Fill yourself with the abundance of My Divine Mercy and when you open your mouth to speak, proclaim the mercy of My Heart burning of desire for sinners. Let your whole life be a burning desire to take part in My work of Redemption through prayer, sacrifice and desire.” (Jesus) (May 4, 1964)
Today’s Readings: John was a burning and shining lamp,
and for a while you were content to rejoice in his light.
But I have testimony greater than John’s.
The works that the Father gave me to accomplish,
these works that I perform testify on my behalf
that the Father has sent me.” (John 5)
Prayer Meditation- O Lord, we are in the home stretch! One more Sunday of Advent and one more week and before we know it, Christmas Eve! The Gospel brings us the key figure of Advent, John the Baptist, a burning and shining lamp preparing the way for You! And whether we have been doing this Advent well or not, ready or not, it is time for John the Baptist and us to decrease and You to increase and to fill us with Your Presence! Because we want to be Christ Bearers to all this season, just like Our Blessed Mother, bearers of Divine Mercy because we are filled with Your Abundance and a burning desire to save the lost! So it is not too late, whether our Advent was done well or our Advent was done poorly- let us empty ourselves so that we would be filled with You because we can all be burning and shining lamps in the darkness this season!
