Multa habeo vobis dicere (Jn 16:12)

All the time Jesus wants to speak with us. But we are not well-prepared. We are very busy, engaged in many activities and always in a hurry. We rush from one task to the next. We are rushing through reading newspapers, listening to the music and watching TV. Consequently, we thing that there is not enough time for prayer and meditation. 
For that reason, we are to ask for the gift of the Holy Spirit with an open heart. We are to let the divine Spirit guide and lead us to the truth. Since it is the truth which is necessary to approach the living God. 
We do not have to talk much but rather listen carefully to the Lord. We should not behave as teachers but the disciples of the Word of God. As human beings we do not know the future while God keeps it in his hands. 
In this way, let us come closer to him and follow his ordinances. God will help and glorify us if only we invite him to our life. Since we cannot find happiness on our own, but only in God. 
Our life is a gift from the Lord and our fulfilment is in him. We live through his Spirit even if we do not realize it. 
Therefore, come closer to the true life in Christ. Do not focus only on the earthly things. You are much more than body and blood. You have also a spritual soul which longs for God. Only in him you can find refuge, peace and happiness. In the holy communion, you may exult and praise God in the heights. You are never alone because the Lord is always at your side. You are able to see his splendour which reaches beyong heaven and earth. You are called to abide with God for ever and ever.

Lux in mundum (Jn 3:19)

God is Love.
Our heavenly Father never stops loving us. On the contrary, he cares for us more and more. He wants to be with us through the Holy Spirit and abides among us in the holy sacraments, especially in the Eucharist. 
We are called to respond with love as God's beloved children and to trust him with all our heart. Moreover, we are created to live with him in the eternal Kingdom. 
The resurrected King, Son of God, Jesus Christ shows and teaches us how much God loves us. The divine love is stronger than death. 
We experience God's love contemplating the beautiful nature. Every morning we receive light from the sun which makes plants and trees grow. All the time we can choose the divine brightness and approach the source of truth which is in God. 
All of us are able to come toward the light and become holy. Our deeds, words and activities confirm the fact that we want to be children of God. Thus, we live the truth and accept the light. Consequently, we achieve happiness and inner peace. Deep in our soul we feel the presence of the Almighty and in him we take refuge in the hour of trial. 
We close our eyes in order to see our Lord and be radient with joy. By our Savior we are freed from distress and fears. We bless the Lord at all times and live in the communion with the Father and the Son in the Spirit of Love.

Unde sim scitis (Jn 7:28)

It is very close to Easter. In these days we continue to accompany Jesus on his cross road. Especially on Friday we remember his suffering and commemorate his death. From the Sacred Heart of Jesus we receive aboundance of grace. 
The Son of God always walks with us not openly but in secret. He wants to be with us and speak to our soul. But usually we are very busy with our duties and activities. We talk a lot, listen to the news and music, watch TV, etc. So we are not well-prepared to meet with Jesus in our heart. 
The Lord comes to visit us every day and preaches the Good News. But we have many worries and things to do. We ask the questions and we do not have enough time to hear the answer. We think that we know everything  very well and we do not need any advice. We even think that we can find out what the Lord wants from us. However, the will of God sometimes is very different from our ideas. 
Jesus Christ still cries out in the temple and teaches through the holy Scripture. So we can know who the Son of God is and recognize him. In the holy sacraments we meet with Jesus Christ. Then we confess our sins and accept absolution from his hands. By the gift of the Holy Spirit we unite ourselves with God. Consequently, we get to know the truth which is hidden deep in our souls. We realize that as children of God we are from him. The Heart of Jesus lives in our hearts and we are brothers in Christ.

Cognoscamus Dominum (Hos 6:3)

Your soul always wants to be closer and closer to God. Your soul cries and desires to meet with the Lord. If it were possible, your soul would fly towards God.
We are human beings. Consequently, each of us has soul and body. Our body keeps us connected with the earth. Thus, you need to sleep, eat and drink in order to function. Because you have a human body, you are going to die one day. Since you have a spiritual soul, you will live for ever and ever. After your death, you will stand in the presence of the Lord.
As a child of God, you strive to know your heavenly Father. You are not an angel and you cannot see God right now. But his holy presence surrounds you everywhere and in every moment of your life. Accordingly, you are never alone. By the power of the Holy Spirit, God comes to you as the dawn and shines on you with the lifght of the sun. He touches you like the drop of the rain and makes you grow. He provides food for you from the garden and satisfies your needs.
Please, think about your desires and tell about them to the Lord. Reflect on your prayer and on feelings which you have in your soul. Lord Jesus Christ needs nothing else but your love and piety. Even if you work very hard, do not stop talking with Jesus. Through the gift of the Holy Spirit, you are to experience God’s presence in your life. May the needs of your soul and body be united. In such a way, you will do everything well and hear the beating of the Heart of Jesus.

Audite vocem meam (Ier 7:23)

Christian is a person who listens to God’s voice carefully. Christian is a person who chooses God to lead him/her in life. Christian always walks in the ways of God.
However, it is not enough to hear God’s voice. You need to obey and pay heed to it. Similarly to a child who learns from his parents and teachers’ knowledge. You are created to be a child of God. Obviously, there are many activities and duties which you should do. But the most important task is to pay attention to the gentle voice of the Holy Spirit in your soul.
There are people who help you focus and tune your heart properly. At the same time there are people and things which disturb you. Therefore, in the Lenten season you are to say: STOP for everyone and everything which does not lead you towards the Lord. Also you are to look for and read Holy Scripture and writing of saints.
Do not be lazy in the spiritual work like reading, meditating, sitting in silence before God. In this way you can hear his voice – the voice of your Beloved One – Jesus Christ. It is your most important duty. Try to listen carefully because he wants to talk to you every day.
Do you have enouth time for the private prayer? Do you remember words of God who speaks to you during the Eucharist? What message from the Bible is inspiring for you? Do you keep it in mind? If not, please, take correction. Start to be more faithful again. Today try to open your heart and obey to the voice of the Lord. Consequently, you will be fulfilled with joy, peace and divine love.

Super omnes filios (Gen 37:3)

God the Father loves you so much. From the beginning of the world you are in his thoughts and plans. You do not come to the world by accident but because of the everlasting love of the heavenly Father. From your parents you inherited your body but your soul has its origin in God. For that reason, you are the beloved child who is loved, and accepted, and wanted.
Other people can make you forget about this great and divine love. But you should keep it deep in your heart whatever happens in your life. People can hate you and treat you badly but you are to know your dignity as God’s child. Moreover, you ought to love as your Father teaches you - not only your friends, but also enemies. Since all the people are children of God and he loves them all. Accordingly, you are sent to the world in order to love and embrace your sisters and brothers.
Do not give up. Do not stop loving people. Even if they are sinners, they still need the experience of love. Actually, the same is in your case. When you make mistake, you look for forgiveness rather than punishment. If you commit sin, you rather need a friend than a judge. So try to focus on God and his fatherly love towards you. Open your heart for the experience of the love which comes from the Holy Spirit. With the divine grace you are able to love and share love with all the people. Remember that you always are the beloved child of God. Everything can collapse but your heavenly Father will not disappoint you. As his child you can be a good witness of his love to the whole world.

Vox deprecationis meae (Ps 130:2)

Lord, I love you so much. And I also want to tell you that I need you. Deep in my heart I wait for you. Although there are many activities and duties, I really look for you. Noone else knows the cry of my soul and my dreams but you. Please, listen to me and be attentive to my voice.
Excuse me because I still make mistakes and commit sins. I am ready to stand in your presence and confess my iniquities. You know well that I very often return to my sins. Please, forgive me all what is wrong in my life. I don’t want to hurt anybody anymore. Sorry that I sometimes speak and behave badly. Do not remember my sins but cleanse me thanks to your grace.
I cannot trust myself because so many times I disappointed you. But I do hope in you, my Lord, and obey your holy words. Always I come back to you and ask for compassion. I am sure that you neither abandon me nor forget my prayer. There is nothing in this world which may satisfy my longings. Only you, my beloved One, whom I praise and worship.
O my Lord, I am waiting for you. Please, touch me gently and cure my soul. You are merciful and kind. So you will not let me suffer because of my weaknesses. Please, visit my heart and heal my inner wounds. I do not want to make more mistakes in my life. I ask for your Holy Spirit to strengthen me and fulfil me with your divine love. I pray for a new spirit with a humble heart. Amen.
