Meditation Lk 12,35-38

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. (The Spiritual Exercises No.46)

Fixing a place, a picture for meditation: Imagine a house or a flat.There are people who are waiting for Jesus.See what they are doing, how they prepare the flat and themselves for his coming.Jesus comes and invites everyone to the table, and he begins to serve.Maybe you are sitting at the table, too ….

Ask for the fruit of meditation: for the joy of meeting Jesus

  1. be like those who are waiting …

When we are sure of full acceptance by another person, then our waiting is calmer, we do not worry that something is still imperfectly done, but we are filled with joy of meeting. However, if we fall into the fear of the reaction of the other person and constantly improve something, clean and in fact we are closed of the meeting and it is difficult for us to feel real joy.So, we prepare the whole preparation for the arrival of the guest because of fear and but our love.Maybe we cannot hear a knock on the door because of our fear.

Consider in this context what it means for you:  to be waiting for.How are you waiting for a second person?What affects the way you wait?See also how are you waiting for Jesus?What relationship connects you with him, how do you feel in it?What is your waiting for Jesus?What do you want to surprise him with?

  1. Lamps lit illuminate the space. They let us see what would be invisible in the dark.What is your lamp?What helps you to notice?What God’s activities do you see through her?
  2. What must be the host who comes and starts to serve his servants, who turns into roles with his servants?How much he must love them!Today, Jesus comes to you and invites you to sit at the table. Let him serve you.


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)
