Think About It
- Mother Teresa, reflecting on the love of Jesus for each of us stated, “…he longs for you. He misses you when you don’t come close. He ‘thirsts’ for you.” Sit with these words in silence and notice how they speak to your heart today. Do they give comfort or leave you cold? Pray your response.
- In his recent encyclical Laudato Si’, Pope Francis calls each of us to renew our commitment to care for the earth, our common home. Identify ways you already practise mindful conservationism in your day to day routine. Are there ways you could extend your efforts personally, communally or globally?
- St Augustine said, “Our hearts are restless Lord until they rest in thee.” Where are the longings of your heart leading you? Do they provide life-giving water from the inner wellspring that is God? How might you enter into a ‘long conversation’ with a loving ‘Abba’ who thirsts for your company?
