"'I thirst' has no meaning unless through total surrender i give all to Jesus."
"how easy it is to conquer God! we give ourselves to God, then God is ours; and there is nothing more ours than God. for if we surrender to Him, we shall possess Him as He possesses Himself, that is, we shall live His own life. the money with which God repays our surrender is Himself. we become worthy of possessing Him when we abandon ourselves to Him in a supernatural way. true love is surrender. the more we love the more we surrender."
"often you see small and big wires, new and old, cheap and expensive, lined up. unless and until the current passes through them there will be no light. the wire is you and me. the current is God. we have the power to let the current pass through us, use us, and produce the Light of the World- Jesus; or refuse to be used and allow darkness to spread. Our Lady was the most wonderful wire. she allowed God to fill her to the brim, so by her surrender- 'be it done to me according to your word'- she became full of grace, and naturally the moment she was filled by this current, the grace of God, she went in haste to elizabeth's house to connect the wire, john, to the current, Jesus."
thought for the day
"allow God to use you without consulting you."
ask for the grace to surrender your whole life to God. recite the prayer to blessed teresa.
