Today’s Consuming Fire
Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s
Monday of the Second Week in Ordinary
Out With The Old
Your bad temper will go on, but out of this evil nature, I will accomplish a masterpiece if you agree to submit to My Divine Hand. Simply surrender to Me like the wine grapes that are pressed and transformed into wine, which will become My Precious Blood. You also will be intoxicated with My Precious Blood, but only if you are transformed and purified, just like the must, or like the wheat transformed in My Sacred Body, once it has been ground. You also will transform yourself only once you have been ground down and your miserable nature divinized. (Jesus) (September 24, 1963)
Today’s Readings: Likewise, no one pours new
wine into old wineskins.
Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins,
and both the wine and the skins are ruined.
Rather, new wine is poured into fresh wineskins.” (Mark 2)
Prayer Meditation- O Lord sometimes we wonder if we are really fresh wineskins into which You can pour the wine of Your Spirit. So much of the old nature gets in the way- the little pebbles of our human wills! Lord we can’t rid ourselves of our faults and weaknesses ourselves! It is only the vehicle of trust and surrender to You that allows You to do Your Work in us- we are nothing and You are all! Lord work Your masterpiece of Grace in our souls!
