first day of blessed teresa novena

know the living Jesus

"do you really know the living Jesus- not from books but from being with Him in you heart?"

"am i convinced of Christ's love for me and mine for Him? this conviction is the rock on which sanctity is built. what must we do to get this conviction? we must know Jesus, love Jesus, serve Jesus. knowledge will make you strong as death. we know Jesus through faith: by medidtating on His Word in the scriptures, by listening to Him speak through His Church, and through the intimate union of prayer."

"seek Him in the tabernacle. fix your eyes on Him who is the Light. Bring your hearts close to His Divine Heart and ask Him to grant you the grace of knowing Him."

thought for the day

"don't search for Jesus in far lands; He is not there. He is close to you; He is in you."

ask for the grace of an intimate knowledge of Jesus. Recite the novena prayer to blessed teresa.


  1. Starting novena today for you and yours! xoxo

  2. I love it: "Do not search for Jesus in far lands. He is close to you. He is in you." So many times, we think that searching for Him and His Love and Mercy is something so complicated and requiring of so much effort. But He is always right there at the door of our hearts, waiting for us to open them up to Him. To trust Him, regardless of what life hands us, is such a comfort and brings such peace. But I know I want to be 'in control' of every situation, until it feels like life is out of control. Then I have to remember Who is in control and that He does not give us more than we can handle. Many times, it seems that He goes right to our limits. In the end, if we let Him, those stretch our limits, making us stronger and teaching us to trust more and more in His Providence.

    Jedi has indeed touched many many lives. There are miracles surrounding this child every single day. Many of those miracles, we will find out about only when we go Home.

    Your family and your openness is a real witness to all of us. May God continue to bless you and your precious family as you carry on through and beyond this special time in your lives.
