Our Father and Stations of the Cross
Our Father Meditation
MY LITTLE CHILDREN, you must understand that I am a Father who gives Himself and in giving Himself, gives every-thing—just as I commun- icate My Being to My Only Begotten Son eternally, so that even as He is true God, He has nothing in Himself but everything from Me — that is why He is the Littlest of the little. And so I would be a Father to you, communicating Myself totally to you in My Son. O My little children, see, then, how necessary it is for you to be so small that you are nothing in yourselves, nothing outside of Me—like My Son—so that you may receive everything from me.
Stations of the Cross
THE WHOLE MEANING AND PURPOSE of the Stations of the Cross is that you may first prepare to die to yourself, in Jesus, and then die with Him so that, dead to yourself in Him, you may receive everything from the Father. This is the meaning and purpose of your whole life, the perfect preparation for your final death, and for your eternal life in heaven.
And thus, as you follow Jesus to His death, the truth is that it is you at this time, not Jesus in Himself, but Jesus in you, who are going to your Calvary as He went before you. The death Jesus died, He died only once, and now He can die no more, in Himself. But in you He longs to die once again—that He may live in you, which is the fulfillment of His own dying
