With Jesus during the day
“The presence of God is so intimate to me that it seems impossible to lose it, and this presence gives my soul a joy that I cannot explain” (St. Pauline). Being close to Jesus is a real gift. Mary Magdalene was chosen by Jesus to announce his resurrection to others. May I, like her, learn to recognize the saving presence of Jesus in my life, his sacrifice for me. I ask the Lord for the gift of fidelity to follow him, to love him and to proclaim him to all. May his strength and joy be reflected in my life and enlighten those with whom I live in my daily life.
