At the heart of our cloistered contemplative life,
lies the cry of Jesus :
« I thirst! »
If this cry has found an echo in the heart of Aurelia Caouette,
our Foundress, would it not resound in our hearts today?
What should be our response?
To mirror, as much as possible, the Divine Love through which Jesus
shed his Blood : a love of which this Blood has been and ever shall
be a sign, an expression, a measure and a pledge.
* In the Eucharistic Sacrifice
* During Divine Office or Lectio Divina
* During our day or night times of adoration
* In our daily activities as well ( at the telephone, at reception,
and in the secretary office )
Each one’s joys and hopes, sorrows and distresses, especially
of the poor, of those who suffer, - they are our joys, hopes, sorrows
and distresses, and there is nothing of a truly human nature which
fails to resound in our hearts.
Our whole life is spiritually ‘coloured’ in a special
way by our worship of the Precious Blood as it motivates our every
gesture. To become an icon of Christ the Redeemer, in our everyday
lives, is a great challenge. He gave us all his Blood, let us give
Him all our love.
