Love of Jesus Christ – Tenth Day of January
Love of Jesus Christ.
“If any man love not Our Lord Jesus Christ, let him be anathema.” — 1 Cor. 16:22.
The Master, the Lord, He Who is lord of all, has taken the form of a slave, that he who was a slave might recover his liberty and become a master. What incomprehensible charity, O my God, to have delivered Thy Son to redeem a slave! — St. Ambrose.
With a great servant of God, let us say: O my Saviour! I am Thy servant, Thy slave. May I never be separated from Thee! I belong to Thee; save!
St. Catharine of Genoa after her conversion often said: “No more sin, O my God! Nothing but Thy love. Write in my heart the law of Thy love with the sacred letters of the Holy Ghost.”
Oh, how insensible are sinners who become slaves to their passions, to the world, to the demon, instead of serving Thee, O my Jesus, the King of kings! Grant me grace to say from the bottom of my heart: My Jesus, I love Thee!
