Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Friday of the Thirty Fourth Week of Ordinary Time
The Kingdom of God Is Near
Wherever you go, let it be felt that you partake every day in the heavenly banquet. Desire that everyone have this same yearning. Let the coming of My Kingdom be the only object of prime importance in your life. (August 16, 1962)
Today’s Readings: Jesus told his disciples a parable.
“Consider the fig tree and all the other trees.
When their buds burst open,
you see for yourselves and know that summer is now near;
in the same way, when you see these things happening,
know that the Kingdom of God is near. (Luke 21)
Prayer Meditation- Lord the Kingdom is here now but not yet. Because Your Kingdom has not come in its fullness as it will at the end of time. And yet You told us that the Kingdom of God is within us (Luke 17:21). And do we live like we are already in the Kingdom? Is it apparent wherever we go that we partake in the heavenly banquet of the Mass? Do we live Spirit filled lives? Let the coming of the Kingdom right now in our hearts as well as when it comes on Earth as it is in Heaven be our purpose and may we desire that everyone has the same yearning for the God who yearns for us!
