A Little Meditation

Imagine yourself walking through a pine forest all by yourself. You experience the silence, the stillness, the wonderful scent of the tall trees that embrace you. Now picture Jesus coming up and walking right beside you. He gives you a big beautiful smile that lights your heart up and fills you with lasting energy and joy. Once this energy fills your whole body Jesus disappears. This experience comes to life at every celebration of the Eucharist. The Eucharist is the pinnacle of intimacy and when we are empty it is He who fills us. Then we can say with St. Paul, “It is not I who lives, it is Christ Jesus who live in me.” Have a most blessed week.
Love and prayers,
Hermits of St. Giles

About hermitsoftheholycross

The Hermits of the Holy Cross is a Contemplative Association for those who are permanently physically disabled and have become “home bound” to their local Church and are in need of continuous medical care. The Association of the Hermits of the Holy Cross is set-up in such a way that those who are ill and physically disabled can live out their monastic spirituality from their own home. We assist the Church and the world through our life of prayer and freely offering up our sufferings that stem from our disabilities. For the Hermits, our hermitage is within our heart and the Cross of Christ is life for us and for our world.

    What a lovely meditation! I often think that when we receive Holy Communion we become a living monstrance bringing Christ out to the world as we leave the Church.
