Thought of the Day August 19, 2016

“Our wish, our object, our chief preoccupation must be to form Jesus in ourselves, to make his spirit, his devotion, his affections, his desires and his disposition live and reign there. All our religious exercises should be directed to this end. It is the work which God has given us to do unceasingly” (St. John Eudes ) How often do we reflect on the truth of these words? Is our preoccupation deepening our relationship with Jesus Christ, knowing that from this everything else will follow? Is our preoccupation more material, secular and keeping up with the world? It goes back to Jesus' reflection on the narrow road and the wide road. One leads to God; the other away from God. This idea is truly counter-cultural to the values of today's world. But in the end what will matter is our relationship with Jesus, not just a surface one, but a real, intimate one. That is if heaven is your goal in life.
