NINEVEH 90 - Daily Reflections - Day One

There is much that each of one can do to prepare for the 100th Anniversary of Fatina on May 13, 2017 . However I am just posting the daily meditations.  For more information please go to the Nineveh 90 Website here

GOD'S WORD

"So be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect." (Matthew 4:48)

HEROES' WORDS

"If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world ablaze!" -St. Catherine of Siena

 "This is the very perfection of a man, to find out his own imperfections." -St. Augustine

 "To live is to change, and to be perfect is to have changed often." -Bl. John Henry Cardinal Newman

 "He who climbs never stops going from beginning to beginning, through beginnings that have no end. He never stops desiring what he already knows." -St. Gregory of Nissa

"Let us begin in earnest to work out our salvation, for no one will do it for us, since even he himself, who made us without ourselves, will not save us without ourselves." -St. Margaret Mary Alacoque


MEDITATION

"All Christians in any state or walk of life are called to the fullness of Christian life and to the perfection of charity." All are called to holiness: "Be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect." (CCC 2013)


Spiritual progress tends toward ever more intimate union with Christ. This union is called "mystical" because it participates in the mystery of Christ through the sacraments - "the holy mysteries" - and, in him, in the mystery of the Holy Trinity. God calls us all to this intimate union with him, even if the special graces or extraordinary signs of this mystical life are granted only to some for the sake of manifesting the gratuitous gift given to all. (CCC 2014)


The way of perfection passes by way of the Cross. There is no holiness without renunciation and spiritual battle. Spiritual progress entails the ascesis and mortification that gradually lead to living in the peace and joy of the Beatitudes. (CCC 2015)
