Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
I Want To See
Thursday of the Eighth Week of Ordinary Time
“In spite of all my efforts, O Lord, I see no progress in myself.” Jesus: “Do not worry! Begin anew each day. Our Mother will help you, ask everything from her. She knows how to please Me.” (March 4-7, 1962)
Today’s Readings: Jesus said to him in reply, “What do you want me to do for you?”
The blind man replied to him, “Master, I want to see.”
Jesus told him, ‘Go your way; your faith has saved you.” (Mark 10)
Prayer Meditation: Lord, so many days we can feel like we are walking blindly in darkness. We see our days unfold little by little- only seeing what is in front of us. We can feel helpless as we cannot see the big picture and we see no progress in ourselves, in spite of all of our efforts to grow in holiness. And that is the problem, because it is our efforts, not Your Work that we are operating in. We read about Bartimaeus who, without fear, cries out –“Son of David, have pity on me” even as others tried to silence him. He was not afraid to answer Your direct question and tell You what he wanted from You. He wanted to see! And You heard him and healed him and told him that his faith has saved Him! Lord Jesus, help us to come boldly to You and be like Bartimaeus. Let us begin anew each day and let us ask especially through the intercession of Our Blessed Mother for what we need, especially when we our faith and our courage seems so small.
