Meditation Lk 10,21-24

Stand in God’s presence. God is present here and now, looking upon you with love.
Ask for the Grace:

I will beg God our Lordthat all my intentionsand actions may be directed purelyto the praise and serviceof His Divine Majesty

Fixing a place, a picture for meditation: Jesus is together with his disciples. In their presence, he says a prayer to his father. Listen to Jesus’s prayer. Look to his disciples, who are around, maybe they are listening to Jesus’s prayer. Maybe you are with them.


Ask for the fruit of meditation: for the desire to know God

1.     I give you praise, Father … for although … you have revealed them to the childlike.

Why is Jesus talking to his Father in this way? Maybe because only the child is able to accept what is said by the father, mother with confidence and openness. Maybe because he can be interesting to his parents and has a desire to learn about them. Maybe because child can stay honestly with their worries and joys in front of his/ her parents. Maybe because only a child can learn to be the son and daughter of his parents and be proud of it.

What attitude do you have before God? How do you let God reveal himself in your life without imposing your conditions on him? What is your curiosity about God, how do you know him?

  1. Jesus rejoiced.

Jesus can be joyful. He draws this joy from his deep relationship with God. It does not have to be dependent on external circumstances. What can you give your joy? Where do you look for joy? Consider this also in the context of Advent, as a time of joyful waiting for the coming of Jesus. Maybe it is worth taking care of small joys for yourself and your loved ones at this time…

  1. Jesus says that blessed are the eyes that see and the ears that hear.

What are your eyes and ears? What does you make see and hear others, or do not see or hear them? What does you help to hear God’s words and see him, his action in your life?

  1. Meet Jesus in the attitude of childish naivety, as you can.

Let yourself become a small child, full of inner simplicity, openness, trust, willing to discover secrets.

Meditation:St Ignatius encourages in The Spiritual Exercises No. 2 … Because not so much knowledge, but internal feeling and the taste of things please and saturate the soul, that is, we stay where we feel interior movement … and nervously do not try to go on.

The final conversation: Spend a little time at the end, being with God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit….as you would with a good friend: sometimes talking, sometimes listening, sometimes being together in silence. Speak to God about your feelings. Remember that times when ‘nothing is happening’ can also be significant. When you’re ready, end your prayer by saying thank you or using words that are familiar, such, as the Lord’s Prayer (Our Father)–whichever feels right and comfortable. (The Spiritual Exercises No.54)
