Remain In Him

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

Thursday of the Fifth Week of Easter

Remain In Him

I am your way and your life. Everything passes away, only your work for souls remains.” (Jesus) (January 18, 1964)

Today’s Readings: Jesus said to his disciples:

“As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love.(John 15)

Prayer Meditation: Lord, it seems like it should be so easy- just remain in Your Love! But how many things pull us so many directions- temptations, fears, anxieties, troubles all around. And then there we are trying to white knuckle it all by ourselves! Lord You told Saint Faustina that the cause of our falls is that we rely on ourselves and not on You! So how do we remain in You, the only Love that lasts? Help us Lord to remain faithful to prayer, meditating on Your Word, and the Sacraments as often as we can even Spiritual Communions! Without You we can do nothing- let’s not even try it ourselves today- only Your Love remains, all else passes!
