Mt 5,43-48

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 Lord that all my intentions and actions may be directed purely to the praise and service of His Divine Majesty

Fixing a place, a picture for meditation: remember the person you like and one you dislike.

Ask for the fruit of meditation: that I would love more

1.Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.

Think about what these words evoke in you? What is your consent? What do you experience in relations with those you like and what with those you perceive as your enemies? What makes you think of one person as your friend and another as an enemy?

2.You shall love you neighbor…
a) Take these words to yourself: you are your neighbor. How do you treat yourself, what do you think about yourself? Are you your enemy or friend? Look even deeper: each of us has some parts, spaces that we like, which we are proud of, happy and those we would like to get rid of. Today maybe it is worth looking at these unwanted parts in us and thinking about what they say about us, what they teach about ourselves, what they tell us about us? God accepts you as you are now. He looks at you as his most beautiful and beloved child. Look at yourself with God’s eyes as you can.

b) The word love in today’s pericope means agape love. This means that feelings that we identify with love are important, but much more our actions are important. To love the enemy means to wish him well, want good for him, not revenge. So, you don’t have to feel sublime feelings for the person you have suffered from, it’s very difficult. However, if you allow yourself experience a time of forgiveness, you can come to the point where you can say with full inner consent that you wish this person good. Search your understanding of words to love your neighbor.

3.God makes his sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust.

In the world is a place for everyone, because God creates everyone. Look at the reality that surrounds you as a unit in which there is a place for every man, where there is a place for difficult and pleasant feelings, where there is a place for good and unpleasant events. Maybe it is worth merging, uniting what seems difficult to accept …

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)

 

Meditation J 17,1-11a

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 Lord that all my intentions and actions may be directed purely to the praise and service of His Divine Majesty

Fixing a place, a picture for meditation:  Jesus is staying with the community of disciples around Jerusalem. After a long teaching, Jesus begins to pray to God the Father. Listen to this prayer, be present in this scene.

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

1. … this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.

a. Jesus gives an explanation of what eternal life is all about. It is know God and Jesus Christ. What does know mean? In the online dictionary of the Polish language, the word to know is translated as: to get a message about something, to understand something as a result of observation or direct experience. Looking at the above explanations, think about how you get to know God, how do you know him? What is your experience of God, how does it allow you to understand God more and more, his actions in your life?

b. Look at your relationship with other people: how do you recognize him? How do you understand the other person, her/his world, her/his perception of reality? What is your openness to accepting other people’s otherness?

2. I glorified you on earth by finishing the work that you gave me to do.

Jesus says how he shows glory to his Father – by doing what the Father gives him. Therefore, we also show glory to God, when we fulfill his will, we perform our duties, we accept our everyday life, we accept another human being. We do not run away from the hardships, uncomfortable relationships, the monotony of the day, but we seek what brings us closer to God.

In this context, think about how you show God the glory.

3. The whole fragment of the mediated pericope is the prayer of Jesus. In this prayer Jesus intercedes for his disciples: I am asking in their behalf; I am not asking on behalf of the word, but on behalf of those whom you gave me, because they are yours. Jesus also prays for you. Read this sentence by inserting your name: I am asking in (put your name here) behalf; I am not asking on behalf of the word, but on behalf of (put your name here) whom you gave me.

What do you feel, what this prayer of Jesus awakens in you?

Meditation J 6,30-35

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 Lord that all my intentions and actions may be directed purely to the praise and service of His Divine Majesty

Fixing a place, a picture for meditation: Capernaum, a settlement of several thousand inhabitants on the Sea of Galilee. Residents engaged in fishing, agriculture and trade. So you can see boats, fishing nets, trade stands, somewhere in the distance people working in the field. People from Tiberias come to this town to get Jesus. They are looking for him. They make a conversation with Jesus, ask questions – listen. Find yourself in this scene, maybe you also want to participate in this conversation.

Ask for the fruit of meditation: I ask for my desire  to trust Jesus more

  1. Signs.

People who were looking for Jesus probably expected his signs greater than those which the Israelites received from Moses. So they ask: what more Jesus can give them than bread from heaven. These signs are to convince them to believe in God.

It is worth considering why they need probably bigger signs to believe. What is it about them that the very presence of Jesus is an insufficient sign for them to believe. So what are their expectations and what do them allow to satisfy expectations to believe in God.

We also look at each other: what signs do I need and why, to enter into a deeper relationship with God? People who live with each other, connect their ties, communicate their presence through different signs, which maybe it is sometimes easier to see than those that come from God. What signs can I see from God who is alive, present all the time and through which he communicates with me?

2. Spiritual food.

Jesus speaks of himself as the Bread of Life, which everyone can enjoy. What is your spiritual food in your everyday life, what gives you strength to live (maybe some concrete prayer, maybe silence, maybe a conversation, maybe some book or walk …)?

3. Encounter.

Imagine that Jesus asks you: what should I do to help you to be in a closer relationship with me? What will you answer?

Meditation Mk 3,31-35

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 Lord that all my intentions and actions may be directed purely to the praise and service of His Divine Majesty

Fixing a place, a picture for meditation: See a house: how it looks from the outside and inside? There is a crowd of people in the house, who listen to Jesus. See how people look, how they sit. Notice Jesus, who is in the midst of them. Someone comes to him and says that his mother and relatives are outside and asking for him. See Mary with those, with whom she came. Where are you ?

Ask for the fruit of meditation: for getting to know my identity in God

1. His mother and his brothers arrived. Standing outside they sent word to him and called him.

What did Mary probably feel while she was waiting outside the building? She is the mother of Jesus, but she doesn’t come in. Why is she doing this? What is she guided by? What is her relationship with her son? What can Mary teach you in this situation? Look at your relationship: with your children, your relations. How do you feel about it? How do you react when your relatives tell you to wait? What is your waiting, being outside? What does this mean to you?

2. Who are my mother and (my) brothers? (For) whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.

How do you fulfill the will of God? What is it and how can you find it? God are creating the world and us all time, he is doing it from his love. So it can be said that his will is that, you would be happy, that you would have the deep, inner joy, that you draw from living in relationship with Him. The way and the type of resources you use to achieve it, depends on you. Find your desires, dreams about your personal and professional life, that you feel are the way out to real life and set them with your talents and limitations (so stand in your humility, in the truth about yourself, as you can). See how and what you can realize and how does it lead you to the fullness of life in God today, here and now? 

3. Jesus shows by his attitude, that if we want to do God’s will, we must leave our family, our relatives. This is not about physical isolation. To leave the family means to know your identity and re-enter the relationship. Maybe you do not have to have the same beliefs, persuasions as your ancestors, maybe you do not need to have a profession like your parents, maybe you do not have to pray in the way like your grandma did? Maybe your path of your development is different because you’re unique, no one else has the same DNA code as you! What is your identity? Who you are? Who are you feeling? Who are you in the eyes of a loving God? Listen to what God wants to say.

Fall #9

I can often hear  people saying they don’t like fall. Notice today how it is a beautiful season, which God created for us. Marvel at coloured, falling leaves, rustle leaves as you step on them, wind blowing, the melody of raindrops. Smell the fall in the park, in the forest. God speaks to you through these signs. Hear him.

The short day and longer evening are given for us because of some purpouse. Do you know for what? How do you can use it for yourself, for your development, for your rest, for  to deep your relationship with others, with God? The natura has to recover in order to develop even more beautifully later. How about you?

Let yourself to go for a walk and admire fall. Search and finde God there.
