Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Memorial of Saint John Bosco
After a period of serious doubts and torments for my soul, I accepted that the will of God be done. My soul was so overwhelmed with grace that I was unable to utter a single word (Elizabeth) (Compendium Page 6)
Today’s Readings: “What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most -High God? I adjure you by God, do not torment me!” (He had been saying to him, “Unclean spirit, come out of the man!”) He asked him, “What is your name?” He replied, “Legion is my name. There are many of us.” (Mark 5)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, we have been dealing with this theme in the Gospel of truly being set free. This time, the poor gentleman was so enslaved and chained by demons that he could not be around anyone else and he kept injuring himself against the stones. A very sad picture but one we see today in the countless numbers of those stuck in addictions or who have mental illness. Not to mention the amount of rage and anger that is out there. For those caught in these serious issues, and they may well be our loved ones or we ourselves even, who may be struggling with these things. We know that only One Name has the power to set us free! Lord I place in the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary all who feel chained by issues that can be legion, absolutely insurmountable, and pray for healing and true freedom for all of these souls so precious to You! May their souls be overwhelmed by Your Grace!
