St. John the Baptist: Solemnity, June 24

There is much to contemplate in this image of the Baptist:

The Baptist, depicted as a living bridge, presents Christ, true God and true man, to the waiting world. His eyes are cast down to direct attention away from himself to his Saviour.

Jesus, as he begins His ministry,  looks to the Father, seeking His will in all He must do in the work of Redemption...

The Light of Christ informs and regenerates creation...

Mirrored in both the swan floating serenely on the waters of death and also in the rock from which the all-powerful waters of regeneration spring, Christ embraces the the dove, symbol of the soul entrusted to His care.

To detach myself from creatures
to look for God, I rest in God himself...
This is the whole interior Life.
Leaving everything,
I found Everything!

Doves and Sacred Heart
To the little birds God gives the pasture.

On verso of card:
"Cast into the bosom of God 
all of your concerns, because
He himself takes care of you." 
~ I Peter ch. 5

O my God, I rest in your Divine 
Providence: the child who is 
in the arms of so good a Father
can not perish.

There, recollected and alone, in the Heart of Jesus I lose myself.

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

My pleasure, O, my God,
my wealth, is your law,
My only ambition
is to be everything to you;
You hold me, in place of day in a profound night,
In the milieu of a desert
you return to me a
whole world.

As the eagle teaches her little ones to fly into the air, 
Mary teaches us to lift our hearts towards God.

In the eastern rite the priest approaches the Altar  of Sacrifice with the words, "Now is the time for God to act."   These  words remind the faithful that in the Liturgy the substance of bread and  wine is changed by the action of the Spirit into the Body and Blood of  Jesus Christ and that, as we receive the Energy of the Triune God in the  Mystery of the Blessed Sacrament, it is the Sanctifier who acts to  change our very being, restoring in us the Image of that which we  receive.

PENTECOST: Solemnity, May 12, 2011

Happy the pure heart. How infinite in the Holy Spirit.
Beside the Living Water through the action of the Holy Spirit, the soul is nourished and purified. Made one with all life in the infinite love of God: this unity is true happiness, it is the expansiveness of joy.
on verso: Bouasse-Lebel

The Prayer of Quiet
The soul alone with God
My Divine Master, whether it be that I run
or that I stop myself, I'm all yours, and you are all to me. O Divine Heart of Jesus,
your memory is my delight, I hunger, I thirst for your love.
Pannier, Pl. 115
