Today’s Gospel says that Jesus was passing by. This made me think of a great book I read some time ago by Saint Josemaría Escrivá, Christ Passing By. Here are some good lines of his, things to reflect upon! Because JC is passing by all the time!
- Don’t say, “That person bothers me.” Think: “That person sanctifies me”.
- Either we learn to find the Lord in the ordinary everyday life or else we shall never find him
- You don’t know how to pray? Put yourself in the presence of God, and as soon as you have said, ‘Lord, I don’t know how to pray!” you can be sure you have already begun.”
- To begin is for everyone. To persevere is for saints.
- You’re bored? That’s because you keep your senses awake and your soul asleep.
