On July 22nd we already touched on this topic in our reflections, but we wanted to deepen this very important point once again.
It is part of a spiritually ordered life to meet the Lord and all that he has created in his love in the right way, or we could also say to give the appropriate answer. This is very important to God himself, as we can see from the following lines:Read More
All people must be led to keep the commandments of God. There is no way around it if life is to succeed and true peace is to reign. Already in the times of the Old Covenant, the transgressions of God’s commandments led to bitter consequences and to further apostasy from God if there was no conversion.Read More
We heard yesterday what significance it has for the Lord that the heavenly Father is glorified. Jesus did it perfectly. But also we humans are called to glorify God in the way that corresponds to our vocation. We should sincerely search for it and let the Spirit of the Lord show it to us. We only have this short time of life to manifest His glory in the light of God on earth, which is often enough a “vale of tears”. There is no time to lose to put one’s life on the scales of love and let oneself be inflamed by the Spirit of the Lord.Read More
There is no greater desire for our Lord Jesus than to glorify His Father. That is what he has come to do, to introduce us to him. If we love the Lord more and more, then this desire also becomes our desire: The complete glorification of our Father, the praise of his goodness!Read More
We have already pointed out in the preceding meditations that the fulfillment of the first commandment to love God with all one’s heart and with all one’s strength is the basis for all actions arising from love. The good that we do on the basis of our decision will only gains its full splendour when it is done, witnessed and thus also serves for its glorification in our union with God.Read More
With the knowledge of the Lord and the experience of His love, our life in the depths of our being becomes less cramped. We come home more and more spiritually and emotionally, because our true home is the fellowship with God and His own.Read More
In the Holy Scriptures and in the proclamation of the Church we encounter the concrete salvific will of God, who wants all people to be saved. We know where God’s will of salvation has led him: to death on the cross of the Lord, to redeem all people. Can there be a greater love?
If we understand mission, that is, the mission of the Risen One to preach the Gospel to all creatures (cf. Mt 28,19), as the seeking love of our Father for His children, then we come very close to the innermost heart of God. He has entrusted participation in this search for his children and thus opened a deep desire of his heart.Read More
The great theme that runs through the Father’s message is the love of God in two ways. The love of the heavenly Father for us and our love for him.
This theme is particularly important today, even if in the Church it is not uncommon for a primacy of charity and the improvement of this world to come to the fore, and for the cultivation of love for God to be equated with it or even put on the back. There is a kind of change of perspective and man instead of God moves into the centre of attention.Read More
In the last meditation we reflected on the source and the ocean of love that the heavenly Father wants to open up for us.
The spring from which living water flows is considered a symbol of the knowledge of God. But we can never know God better than through love, which is his innermost being. “God is love, and whoever remains in love remains in God and God in him” the Apostle John tells us in his letter (1. Jn 4,16).Read More
