Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
The Resurrection of our Lord
Jesus set his heart on heaven and the mercy of God and was able to live abundantly through his Passion, Crucifixion and Resurrection. When my heart is fixed on things of earth –fame, fortune, success and all their trappings - self-centredness, losses, survival, vengeance or other issues become the focus of my life. But when my heart is set on faith, hope and love, then faithfulness, forgiveness and joy are the products of my life, and align my being with the Risen Life of Christ. Where will my heart be set? Holy Spirit Jesus, help me keep my heart set on things above.
I keep the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. (Psalm 16)
I have found heaven on earth, since heaven is God, and God is in my soul.
Blessed Elisabeth of the Trinity
