The Resurrection of the Lord

Divine Intimacy_K2

Presence of God – O risen Jesus, make me worthy to share in the joy of Your Resurrection. MEDITATION “This is the day which the Lord hath made; let us be glad and rejoice therein” (Roman Breviary). This is the most excellent day, the happiest day in the whole year, because it is the day when “Christ, our Pasch, has been sacrificed.” Christmas, too, is a joyous feast, but whereas Christmas vibrates with a characteristic... Read More

The Victory of the Cross

Divine Intimacy_K2

Holy Saturday ✞ Presence of God – O Jesus, crucified for love of me, show me the victory won by Your death. MEDITATION As soon as Jesus expired, “the veil of the Temple was torn in two … the earth quaked, the rocks were rent. And the graves were opened; and many bodies … arose,” so that those who were present were seized with a great fear and said: “Indeed this was the Son of God” (Mt 27:51-54). Jesus willed to... Read More

The Mystery of the Cross

Divine Intimacy_K2

Good Friday ✞ Presence of God – O Jesus, permit me to penetrate with You into the depths of the mystery of the Cross. MEDITATION Good Friday is the day which invites us more than any other to “enter into the thicket of the trials and pains … of the Son of God” (John of the Cross, Spiritual Canticle first redaction, 35,9), and not only with the abstract consideration of the mind, but also with the practical disposition... Read More

The Gift of Love

Divine Intimacy_K2

✞ Holy Thursday Presence of God – O Jesus, grant that I may fathom the immensity of that love which led You to give us the Eucharist. MEDITATION “Having loved His own … He loved them unto the end” (Jn 13:1-15), and in those last intimate hours spent in their midst, He wished to give them the greatest proof of His love. Those were hours of sweet intimacy, but also of most painful anguish. Judas had already set the price... Read More

The Man of Sorrows

Divine Intimacy_K2

✞ Wednesday of Holy Week Presence of God – O suffering Jesus, grant that I may read in Your Passion Your love for me. MEDITATION [Two passages from the prophet Isaiah contain lessons] (62:11 – 63:1-7; 53:1-12) which describe in a very impressive way the figure of Jesus, the Man of Sorrows. It is the suffering Christ who presents Himself to us, covered with the shining purple of His Blood, wounded from head to foot. “Why... Read More

The Meek Lamb

Divine Intimacy_K2

✞ Tuesday of Holy Week Presence of God – O Jesus, give me the grace to penetrate the abyss of sorrow made by sin in Your heart, so full of meekness. MEDITATION …Jeremias 11:18-20 speaks to us as the suffering Savior: “I was as a meek lamb that is carried to be a victim.” This sentence expresses the attitude of Jesus toward the bitterness of His Passion. He knew every one of these sufferings in all their most concrete... Read More
