Today’s Consuming Fire
Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s
Thursday of the Twenty First Week of
Ordinary Time- Our Lady of Czestochowa
Faithful And Prudent Servant
What you must love and seek the most in it are the internal and externa l humiliations. Never believe that you are important. Your principal task is to consider yourself as nothing; never stop doing this. Even after your death, this should be happening. It is for that reason also that you receive the graces of internal and external humiliations. In this way, you can remain faithful in spreading my Flame of Love. Take advantage of every opportunity; seek these external and internal humiliations with your own effort, because what you seek for yourself increases your humility even more.” (Mary) (September 29, 1962)
Today’s Readings: Jesus said to his disciples:
For you do not know on which day your Lord will come. Be sure of this: if the
master of the house had known the hour of night when the thief was coming, he
would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into. So too, you also
must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.
then, is the faithful and prudent servant,
whom the master has put in charge of his household
to distribute to them their food at the proper time?
Blessed is that servant whom his master on his arrival finds doing so.
Amen, I say to you, he will put him in charge of all his property.
Prayer Meditation- Lord, we read today in the Gospel and in the Diary about being faithful and being vigilant! To be prepared, to be faithful in our tasks, to remember most of all that we are nothing and that You are all! To accept internal and external humiliations and to offer them to You for the salvation and sanctification of all souls! No one lived in complete faithfulness and in total union with You like Our Lady and today we honor Her in the sturdy and miraculous icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa! As she looks at us with such love despite the scars on Her Face on that beautiful image, we know that You are with us in all that life throws at us and that Your Love and Faithfulness endures!. Our Lady of Czestochowa, pray for us!
