Jesus does not want us to be attached to possessions, to human honors, to creatures. He asks humility. But His love and His generosity make this detachment less difficult and less cruel to our nature. Nothing else matters to me anymore, nothing has any value for me but Jesus, no place, no thing, no person, no idea, no feeling, no honor, no suffering, nothing that can turn me away from Jesus. For me, Jesus Himself is my honor, my delight, my heart, my spirit, He whom I love, what I love, my home Heaven here on earth. Jesus is my treasure and my love and Jesus crucified is my only happiness.
"If a person cannot recognize the obvious presence of God in a living baby in the womb of its mother, then how would they ever discover the presence of God in the mystery of the Eucharist?" - Bishop David Konderla Photo by Omar Lopez on Unsplash
