Reflection 154: Silent and Humble Adoration

Imagine the scene of our Blessed Mother in the humble state of the Nativity.  She had no home at that moment other than this place where animals gathered.  Yet in the stillness of that holy night, she was at home as she gazed upon her Child with the deepest adoration and love.  She gazed in silence as He lay sleeping on the hay. This must be an image of your soul.  You are called to enter into the humility of the inner dwelling place of your heart.  Deep within, you must see this Precious Child, resting in peace.  Remain silent and attentive, keep your eyes fixed on Him in adoration, and allow yourself to become consumed with delight at His presence within your soul (See Diary #785).

Reflect upon your humble and silent prayer.  As you sit quietly before Jesus, or even as you go about the duties of your day, are you attentive to the divine presence of your Savior living within you?  Do you see Him sleeping there in the stillness?  Our souls must become a place of prayer and silence so that we can humbly keep our eyes upon our Lord within this holy dwelling place.  If you keep your eyes upon Him, as He dwells silently within you, you will then go about your day with the peace and joy that only this holy Child can bring.

Lord, bring humility and stillness to my heart.  May I discover You resting there in peace and adore You with a profound love.  May I always keep my eyes upon You and never become distracted by the many temptations of this world.  May the adoration I offer You who dwell within me become a source of the love and service I offer to all.  Jesus, I trust in You.
