Live by the Will of God

Live by the will of God… Here’s some words shared from the Poor Clare Colettines in England.

Place your mind before the mirror of eternity!
Place your soul in the brilliance of glory!
Place your heart in the figure of the divine substance!
And transform your whole being
into the image of the Godhead itself through contemplation!
So that you too may feel what His friends feel
as they taste the hidden sweetness
which God Himself has reserved
from the beginning
for those who love Him.-  Saint Clare

 

Dear Little hearts,

A blessed and happy Sunday to you all! Enjoy these beautiful summer days while we have them because all too soon Autumn will come.

Today is in addition to the duties pertaining to our various states of life when we take space for prayer and reflection when we try and focus upon Gods Word and think about how to apply it in our life.

This is particularly  important where the words of the Gospel are concerned.

I should ask myself when I read a specific Gospel how can I transfer these words into  the reality of my life, what are they asking of me?

Our Holy Mother Saint Clare was a woman of deep prayer but the foundation, the bedrock of her life was to ‘enflesh’ and live the Gospel of Christ.

So today take these words literally:

Place your mind before the mirror of eternity!


Place your soul in the brilliance of glory!


Place your heart in the figure of the divine substance!


And transform your whole being
into the image of the Godhead itself through contemplation!


So that you too may feel what His friends feel as they taste the hidden sweetness
which God Himself has reserved
from the beginning for those who love Him.-  Saint Clare

Watch “Embrace Our Sacrifices – Sep 12 – Homily – Fr Dominic” on YouTube

I found myself praying the Chaplet of Hannah’s Tears on Saturday and actually reflecting on my inability to embrace my cross ✝ . Without those times of prayer, in times of suffering don’t forget to quiet yourself in prayer with Christ. He will prepare you and me as Father has reiterated in the homily above. God bless you today as we unite our ✝ with the Cross of Christ Jesus.

In the Hearts of the Holy Family,

Therese
