Where have you met Jesus?
We always remember the places where we have met Jesus; Pope Francis tells us it is good to revisit these places. It is the advice of many spiritual directors to go back in memory to your peak experiences in prayer. Often, we not only remember the place, but the time of day, the weather, what we were wearing, etc. We find strength and joy in doing this and are filled with gratitude. There are times when the encounter with Jesus has marked our lives. Let us revisit these today and thank the Lord for coming to us.
I guess every encounter with Jesus has marked our lives, but we are so unconscious of His Presence that we are often unaware and need to reflect back on our day to see where Jesus was not only present but giving us grace in so many ways.
