Finding the True Presence
Today you have a hard time finding Jesus. But if you can find that lit lamp in the church, then you know where the Lord is. That light indicates that in that tabernacle is the Love of All Love-Infinite Love. You can’t love unless you get close to love. You can’t have a fire unless you get close to a fire. You can’t be warm unless you’re near the heat. We have to know that we are loved by a God who is real and present.
~ Mother Angelica
How many times have you drawn near to walk with me my Lord
And I have not recognized you;
How many times have I been slow of heart, debating your truth,
Looking for an easier path to follow?
But you O Lord are always faithful,
And in your great mercy you have never abandoned me;
Your presence is always before me, comforting, consoling and nourishing me.
Like Peter and John, you call me to your table
And in the breaking of the bread,
I am with you and You are with me.
Strengthen me in faith O Lord,
That I may bring that faith to others.
In Your Name I Pray
