We Won’t Be Shaken

Jesus: “I can see to what extent you were shaken by the fact that they did not believe your sincere words which, in truth, come from Me. I have noticed with what level of fortitude you received this first great suffering that was a kind of general rehearsal for the beginning of suffering. This time of grace is destined for the whole world, however, it is through you that we want to initiate this Holy Cause, but it cannot start on feet of clay. It is only with a soul as hard as steel that it can be ignited.” (Jesus) (March 24, 1963)

Today’s Readings: Though the mountains leave their place
and the hills be shaken,
My love shall never leave you
nor my covenant of peace be shaken,
says the LORD, who has mercy on you. (Isaiah 54)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, in these days we can feel shaken- I would bet that most days we all feel pretty shaky because it seems that the world as we know it is passing. And indeed, it is because there is a time of Grace destined for the whole world. As You told us in the Gospel of Luke, I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing! And yet in the shaking of this world, You promise that You will never leave us and that Your Covenant of Peace will not be shaken! Lord we praise You, we thank You, and we glorify You for Your Mercy which never ends!
