COMING CLOSE TO JESUS THROUGH FORGETTING ONESELF

22 Aug

“To forget oneself, to be delivered from all one’s desires and pretensions, to open one’s heart to the pressing needs of others – this is possible only through daily intimacy with Our Lord.

If we take counsel with Him in all our affairs, if we let ourselves be purified by the sanctifying power that flows from the Eucharist, if we offer ourselves to the Lord in this sacrifice and receive Him into our innermost souls in Holy Communion, then we cannot but be drawn ever more deeply into the current of His Divine Life; we shall grow into the mystical Body of Christ, and our heart will be transformed into the likeness of the Divine Heart.”
– St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein)
