Today’s Reflection April 18

Jesus, our Savior, true God and true Man, must be the ultimate end of all our devotions. . . He’s the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End of everything. In him alone dwells the entire fullness of the Divinity and the complete fullness of grace, virtue, and perfection. In him alone we’ve been blessed with every spiritual blessing. He’s the only Teacher from whom we must learn, the only Lord on whom we should depend, the only One to whom we should be united, and the only Model we should imitate. He’s the only Physician who can heal us; the only Shepherd who can feed us; the only Way that can lead us; the only Truth that we can believe; the only Life that can animate us. He alone is everything to us, and he alone can satisfy all our desires. We’re given no other name under the heavens by which we can be saved. God has laid no other foundation than Jesus for our salvation, perfection, and glory. Every edifice that isn’t built on that firm rock is founded upon shifting sands and will certainly fall sooner or later.

– St. Louis de Montfort
