Today’s Consuming Fire
Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
First Sunday of Lent
Forty Days and Forty Nights
Jesus: “Do not be surprised if certain people I love and who also love Me will receive you with distrust. They will treat you with suspicion and set you aside. Simply abandon yourself to Me. The way to the Golgotha was covered with obstacles. I had to cut a way for myself with great difficulty. You are now accompanying Me to the Calvary on the road of humiliations. Our dear Mother comes with us and has you share in her sorrows. (February 4, 1963)
Today’s Readings: The Spirit drove Jesus out into the desert, and he remained in the desert for forty days, tempted by Satan. He was among wild beasts, and the angels ministered to him. (Mark 1)
Prayer Meditation- Lord as we meditate on the Gospel, it is The Spirit that led You to the desert. You lead us to trials- You indeed call us to Calvary to die with You, that is to die to the parts of our sinful nature that still cling to us. Anxiety, worry, fear, negativity, and sin. But we are not alone at all- The Blessed Mother enfolds us in Her Immaculate Heart! Lord open the eyes of our hearts to what the Spirit wants to work in us these forty days and forty nights!
