Daughters of St. Philip Neri: Let your poverty be a feast for Jesus

November 11, 2014

Dearest daughter, let your sense of your poverty be a feast for Jesus.  As you say, you can only see the ugliness because He is gleaming on you.  How we hate to see it – and yet how can we be translucified in Him if we don’t know we are dark?  He comes running with the bounding joy of a Lover when we turn to Him.  I would only be anxious about you if you saw yourself pure and lovely – let Him see whatever there is of that and be humbly glad you see the murk that calls out to be cleansed. . . .
