Today's Reflection

To see a person full of Christ, oh, how engaging that is. How inspiring that is. How ennobling that is. . .May we come to realize. . .that this is the only success there is – to let Jesus triumph in us, to let him possess this little field that I am. This is success. Our world now is nearly mad with its own idea of success. Success is to get ahead in the business world, to possess a lot of things, to have a lot of everything. Success is to be a famous name. And that is the very reason why salvation is often forgotten, because this blindness prevents us from understanding what the psalmist knows, that salvation – allowing ourselves to be completely saved, completely one with God, completely possessed by God, is the only success. Let us be intent on being very successful. . .
