From today’s Gospel, from St Luke: ‘I came to cast fire upon the earth; and would that it were already kindled! I have a baptism to be baptised with; and how I am constrained until it is accomplished!’
St Ambrose commented: ‘For there is a fire from the Lord, of which it has been said, “A fire shall burn before him”. The Lord is also a fire, as He Himself says: “I am the fire that burns without consuming”; for the fire of the Lord is the eternal light; it is to this fire that the lamps of which He said above are lighted: “Let your loins be girded, and your lamps burning. Because the days of this life are night, a lamp is necessary’.
May our love for the Lord be a fire within us that He Himself has kindled; and may God bless you this day.
