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

Monday of the Tenth Week of Ordinary Time

Poverty of Spirit

Shortly before this, however, my youngest boy got married. Now, I had to help him get a bedroom. So, I gave up the children’s room. I felt that the Lord was asking for this sacrifice, so I would be totally poor. (Elizabeth) (Diary Page 8)

Today’s Readings: “Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5)

Prayer Meditation: Like Elizabeth, Lord You call us to poverty of spirit. In detaching ourselves from the things of this world so that we can be filled with You. Lord You know how difficult and painful this process can be but You lovingly call us to fill the God sized holes in our souls with You and only You! Nothing compares to the glory of knowing You Lord!
