Today’s gospel, from St Luke, ends with these words of our Lord: ‘He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters’. Jesus, the Word of God, dwells within our hearts; and that Divine Indwelling sets us in a place of choice. We cannot be both with Him and against Him; or both ardent and indifferent. We have to choose.

May your choice today be for Him, with all your heart; to be with Him, to gather with Him. He will surely bless this decision. May He be very close to you this day, and always.
