Thought for the Day – 12 June – Our Relationship with the Most Holy Trinity

Thought for the Day – 12 June – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

Our Relationship with the Most Holy Trinity

The soul should also be the spouse of Jesus Christ.
The union between us and Our Lord, should be loving and intimate, like that of husband and wife.

Jesus has been called our Brother, “the firstborn among many brothers” (Rom 8:29).
We are, in fact, the adopted sons of God, just as He is the natural Son.
But Jesus was not satisfied merely to show a fraternal love by giving us His Heavenly Father as our Father and His Mother Mary as our mother.
He wanted to give us something even more intimate, so He communicated to us His very life!
The soul of a Catholic is the spouse of Jesus, not only because it is united closely with Him but, because, through the channel of His grace, He gives it His own Divine life.

Jesus has often spoken to His Saints as to a spouse.
Christ is our spouse and wishes to be loved by us,” writes St Bernard, He desires,” says St Teresa, “to be loved by us and to love us with the love of a spouse. He demands all the affection of which our hearts are capable.
We should examine ourselves to see if we really return this intimate love of Jesus.
Above all, we should ensure that all our actions are performed solely out of love for Him.”

Passionate Catholic. Being a 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, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, 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. This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul. "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. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
