27th January


How beautiful and useful it is to think of Jesus all the time, and to keep our gaze on Him in all things, as the Apostles did! We must not only think of Him as God, which could cause bewilderment and fear, but we must see Him as man, as one of us, clothed with the same body, a man subject to all human weaknesses, except sin, who shares our joys and sorrows, who has pity on us, who comforts us, who brings happiness, who encourages us, who helps us, who corrects us, who is always faithful, always a friend, always present as a close companion. Yes, indeed! The love for Jesus has become feeble in many hearts! How I wish that Christians would do their utmost to restore it and to re-kindle it.
