Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Fourth Thursday of Advent
I always tell you not to worry that you can give Me only little things. I say again, ‘Always remain little.’ Do not believe that if you had powers to do great things, you would be a saint sooner. (Jesus) (April 10, 1962)
Today’s Readings: My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior. for he has looked upon his lowly servant. From this day all generations will call me blessed: the Almighty has done great things for me, and holy is his Name. (Luke 1)
Prayer Meditation- Lord You alone do great things- You have done great things for Mary and You are doing great things in all of our lives. Lord, we go around thinking we are the ones who are to do the great things- we will ourselves to be holy under our own power but it just never works! We spin our wheels, we exhaust ourselves, we burn out and come to the end of ourselves because only You can make us holy! Lord, please help us to always be little, to trust in Your Grace and abandon ourselves to Your Divine Providence! Blessed Mother, gather Your children around You to sing His Praises today- Holy is His Name!
