Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
When I was baptized, [my] life was set on the path of fulfilling my identity as a child of God, and aligning [my] heat, mind, soul and strength with the Holy Spirit of God. This is indeed a ‘holy’ , ‘mystery’ of attachment, full of forgiveness and grace –and choices to hold fast to the Love and truth of Jesus’ Gospel message. As my life unfolds, will [I] be deemed a child of the evil one, to be tossed into a furnace of fire, or will [I] be welcomed into the kingdom of God as a holy and fruitful child of God? Holy Spirit of God, help me live into the holy mystery of my baptism; help my family members, my friends, all the baptized, live into the holy mystery of their baptisms.
If you turn back, I will take you back and you shall stand before me. (Jeremiah 15:19)
Remain in Me, not for a few moments, a few hours which must pass away, but "remain . . ." permanently, habitually. Remain in Me, pray in Me, adore in Me, love in Me, suffer in Me, work and act in Me.
