Thought for the Day – 7 October – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)
“Month of the Holy Rosary”
The Fifth Joyful Mystery
The Finding of Jesus in the Temple
“To search for Jesus is the principal obligation of the soul, to find Him, is the highest happiness!
If we are without Jesus, our minds are in darkness and scared with false ideas.
Separated from Him, our hearts are filled with remorse, emptiness and yearning.
Only when Jesus is with us, have life and death any meaning.
Then we can set our journey towards the unfading star of Christian hope.
When Jesus promised to give us His Flesh to eat and His Blood to drink, He saw that His listeners were going away, scandalised.
“Do you also wish to go away?” He asked His Apostles.
“Lord,” replied St Peter, “to whom shall we go? Thou hast wprds of everlasting life” (Jn 6:69).”
