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.
