I Thirst



"Whenever you do open the door of your heart, whenever you come close enough, you will hear me say to you again and again, not in mere human words but in spirit:
'No matter what you have done, I love you for your own sake.  Come to me with your misery and your sins, with your troubles and needs, and with all of your longing to be loved.  I stand at the door of your heart and knock... open to me, for I thirst for you.'"

  3. Isn't it funny how one can look at paintings and sculptures of Our Lord and just know which ones really look like Him? At least that's how my crazy minds works. Looking at the image here, man, That is definitely Jesus's eyes! I wonder who the artist is.

  5. In the Pontifical North American College Manual of Prayers this is attributed to the Missionaries of Charity Fathers. It's a bit longer and very moving and beautiful. Bob
