Monday, Third Week of Advent (St. John of the Cross)

December 14, 2015


Blessed St. John of the Cross’ Day!

You can find his story here.
I Corinthians 2:1-10 (I resolved to know nothing except Jesus Christ, crucified)
Psalm 37: 3-6, 30-31 “The mouth of the just man murmurs wisdom”
+ Luke 14:25-33 (Whoever does not renounce all of his possessions cannot be My disciple)

If any of my confidence
depends on me
or what I own,
I can expect to be
a laughingstock;
it’s not enough.

But when I hang
my life
upon the Cross
beside the Lord,
He overflows
and I have superfluity.

Have I emptied my heart to make room for God’s abundance?
