Today’s Consuming Fire
Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s
Feast of Saints Simon and Jude
Chosen and Loved
My little one, must stir up the fire because you have been chosen for this.
This is a great privilege. Never interrupt your desires and sacrifices because
this would cause My mother great sorrow.” (Jesus) (July 12, 1962)
Readings: Brothers and sisters:
You are no longer strangers and sojourners,
but you are fellow citizens with the holy ones
and members of the household of God,
built upon the foundation of the Apostles and prophets. (Ephesians 2)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, as we celebrate the Feast of Saint Simon and Jude we meditate on what is means to be chosen for Your work of redemption. Because we are not strangers to You but members of Your household built upon the Apostolic foundation of the those who have gone before, fellow citizens with the saints. So let us stir up the fire in our hearts because we have been chosen by You to spread Your Kingdom on Earth no matter our state in life. All are called to desire this Kingdom to come into our hearts and into our families and to make loving sacrifices, as simple as a smile when we don’t feel like it or a sharp word held back out of love for You, because we are chosen and loved!
