Follow Me

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

Thirteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time

Follow Me

The souls that make reparation and faithfully follow My desires are so few. (Jesus) (October 18, 1962)

Today’s Readings: As they were proceeding on their journey someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” Jesus answered him, “Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head.” (Luke 9)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, sometimes it seems there are many who say they are eager to follow You and yet how many are ready for the reality? Because the truth is to follow You is to die- to die to ourselves, our desires, our selfish ways, and our attachments, even good things, if You are not in the center of our hearts. So many times, we just want to look back and not ahead as we put our hands to the plow of our pilgrimage on Earth to You! Lord, help us to console Your Sacred Heart- help us to make reparation and to faithfully follow You in our lives and our vocations! Help us to rest on Your Sacred Heart because even when the way seems hard and long we are always home in You!
