IMITATION OF CHRIST: Meditation of the day...


WHEN Jesus is near, all is well and nothing seems difficult. When He is absent, all is hard. When Jesus does not speak within, all other comfort is empty, but if He says only a word, it brings great consolation. (we need to remember he is always with us...consolations,or not)

Did not Mary Magdalen rise at once from her weeping when Martha said to her: "The Master is come, and calleth for thee"? John 11:28 Happy is the hour when Jesus calls one from tears to joy of spirit. (let us listen closely, He is calling us. Sometimes through others)

How dry and hard you are without Jesus! How foolish and vain if you desire anything but Him! Is it not a greater loss than losing the whole world? For what, without Jesus, can the world give you? Life without Him is a relentless hell, (Think of your worse day...and imagine what it would of been like without a relationship with Christ...scary!!!) but living with Him is a sweet paradise. (Think of your best day...and embrace that during the tough ones!!!) If Jesus be with you, no enemy can harm you. (That is consoling!!!) ...that is enough to meditate on today...more tomorrow...
