Lk 12: 8-12

“And I tell you, everyone who acknowledges me before others, the Son of Man also will acknowledge before the angels of God; but whoever denies me before others will be denied before the angels of God. And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven; but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. When they bring you before the synagogues, the rulers, and the authorities, do not worry about how you are to defend yourselves or what you are to say; for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that very hour what you ought to say.”

Sharing the love of Jesus with others

It is so important to introduce the people who live in our hearts to each other. This happens clearly with many couples over the question of when to introduce the partner to the family or friend group. Yet, when it seems that there never is an introduction, it feels like there’s something holding us back. It feels like there is a part of the other that doesn’t want to be shown. For there is a natural desire in each of us to connect each person who lives in our heart together into one so that our love may multiply. 

This is why it’s so important to take what Jesus says here seriously. If we don’t share our love of Jesus with those we love then there’s a part of us that we’re not sharing, there’s a piece of our heart that is disconnected. So if Jesus really lives in your heart, share him with those you love.

Prayer

Jesus, you love all of me and you love those who I love. Please let me share them with you and you with them so that there may be no part of my life that you aren’t allowed into. Through this, may our love be multiplied to give you ever greater glory. Amen

Welcome to JesuitPrayer.org

Ignatian spirituality reminds us that God pursues us in the routines of our home and work life, and in the hopes and fears of life's challenges. The founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, created the Spiritual Exercises to deepen our relationship with Christ and to move our contemplation into service. May this prayer site anchor your day and strengthen your resolve to remember what truly matters.
