Thought for the Day – 14 April – The Tabernacle Lamp

Thought for the Day – 14 April – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

The Tabernacle Lamp

“Look up at the lamp quietly glowin before the Taberncle in honour of the Eucharistic Presence of Jesus, the Light of the world.
We also, should be like living lamps of love.

The lamp burns night and day in the Presence of Jesus and burns itself out for Him.
For what do we wear out our lives?
In useless and unnecessary projects, perhaps for worldly reasons, for the satisfaction of our ego or of our passions?
We shall certainly never find peace this way but only disillusionment and remorse.

The lamp is the light in the darkness.
Our lives should be a light of good example to others.

The lamp has a flame which gives heat.
We should burn with love for God, our one and only good and, for all men, whom we should regard as our brothers in Jesus Christ.

The lamp is raised above the ground and is suspended from tbe ceiling by three chains.
We should be above earthly things and should be attached to Heaven by the three chains of faith, hope ad charity.
As the lamp opens out, only on top, so should we be open to Heavenly inspirations and closed to worldly preoccupations.
God should be tbe centre of our thoughts and our lives should be dedicated to Him.

In this way, we shall find peace on earth and happiness hereafter.”

Antonio Cardinal Bacci

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
