Manducabit carnes vestras sicut ignis (Jas 5:3).

It will devour your flesh like a fire.

God's voice in our hearts is like a fire which devours everything. It destroys all our uncertainties and doubts and makes us aware of divine presence among us. If you experience this fire, you are able to enkindle others too. You become like a candle which shines with the beautiful flame. Similarly, the man who once was touched by God's Spirit will never forget about it. Moreover, this sign will remain on his soul forever. In the past, there were many people who were tought by God directly. They became prophets and leaders of others who were following them. They knew for sure that the fear of the Lord is pure and his ordinances are true. With this in mind they went across the world preaching. They kept God's commands diligently and tried to be blameless and innocent of serious sins. Nowadays, we are called to follow their example and to understand that Lord's precepts give joy to the heart. Therefore, we ask God to consecrate us in his truth which is written in the Bible. For we also want to perform mighty deeds in Jesus Christ's name. We would like to take care of the little ones who believe in him and show them our hearts which are ablaze with the fire of God's love.
