First Friday of Passiontide (St. Cyril of Jerusalem)
Blessed St. Cyril of Jerusalem’s Day!
You can find his story here.
I John 5:1-5 (Whoever obeys God’s commandments conquers the world)
Psalm 19:8-11 “The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart”
+John 15:1-8 (Whoever remains in Me will bear much fruit)
I cannot be myself
without participating in
the life of God
to the laws
by which He lives—
without His pruning
of the growth
that would detract
without the surging
of the sap
Do I try to be myself by myself?
