Quote of the day: 5 April

The good Lord has an immense desire to enrich us with graces, but we are the ones who allow Him to enrich us to the extent that we know how to let ourselves be immolated by Him, immolated in joy, in thanksgiving, saying with the Master: “Shall I not drink the cup which the Father has given me?” (Jn 18:11)

The Master called the hour of his Passion “His hour,” (Jn 12:27) the one for which He had come, the one He called for with all his desires! When faced with great suffering or a tiny sacrifice, oh, let’s think right away that “this is our hour”, the hour when we will prove our love to the One who has “loved us exceedingly,” (Cf. Eph 2:4) says Saint Paul.

When faced with great suffering or a tiny sacrifice, oh, let’s think right away that “this is our hour” (St. Elizabeth of the Trinity)
