Amidst glowing candles and beautiful flowers.....spreading divine radiance....stood silently the symbol of love, of gentleness, of hope....my dearest prince.....to listen patiently to all that i have to say. The altar, adorned with all the radiant flames and beautiful flowers seemed to be a garden in full bloom.......How true that fragrance from the heart flows only when flowers of purity blossom.....As i knelt down before the altar, there was just one thought filling my mind....that today it was going to be just me and my Lord....As i laid down to sleep yesterday night, i wondered as to what i would ask Him today....what more could I ask of Him....He who always gives me much more than i ever ask......

 

I had begun to feel the calmness of the heart....Every other day there were so many things to do.....so many phone calls, bustling around, preparing for different activities....such a rush all around the clock...but today was different ...it was calm and quiet....the Word came to my mind...about the Lord visiting the sisters’  home (Luke 10:38-42)...how one of them was engaged in all the preparations for the visit...while the other chose to sit by His side....looking into His eyes and speaking to Him in the unheard language of the heart....

 

Fixing my gaze onto the Lord's loving face seemed to be the most beautiful thing in the world...after all He is the ultimate meaning of unconditional love...I was sitting beside the one who conquered the world....who chose this altar, and even my heart...to be His dwelling place....It was when i sat before this presence of overwhelming humility that I realized how much I have yet to grow in order to portray myself as the least.... So many prayers, so many complaints...I had no track of how time was flying by....I was discovering a true and wonderful friend.... He who lives even today...who walks before me...who calls me by name......who walked through the paths of Jerusalem, who in the end died for me......Today there He was...right in front of me......O my Lord! How much you love me without bounds....

 

Every friend will say, "I too am a friend"; but some friends are friends only in name. [Sirach 37:1]

 

Lord, how did you become my friend without me even asking?  You have carved my name on the palm of your hand...Even every hair of mine that falls from my head is safe in your loving and mighty hands...You are truly a great friend....

 

I was experiencing the Lord....without anyone to disturb, without anything to distract....just looking up to his face....the Lord was speaking to me...breaking through the silence....I opened my heart before the Lord and prayed earnestly...there was nothing to boast or pretend before the One who knew my everything...even my most inmost being...It was a prayer to transform myself into a blessing, to be a symbol of love for others....

 

The candles continued to glow without burning out......the flowers continued to spread their beauty without drooping away...Perhaps they knew they were before the throne of peace...of divine grace...

 

This day was an eye-opening journey into great depths....into greater realizations....

 

He is waiting for you too....taking the form of bread.... ready to become the least among you.....just to raise you into sharing in His heavenly joy.....
