Preparing in unity

Behold, the Bridegroom

by | Mar 14, 2022

Reflect upon these words from Erasmo Leiva-Merikakis who is now a Cistercian monk who goes by his religious name Father Simeon. In the following meditation he reflects upon the moment at the end of our earthly life when each Christian encounters the Bridegroom, Christ, face to face.

“At that final moment, Christ will be looking for only one thing in me: the inimitable light that he has always wanted to enkindle me and bring forth from me, the unique flame that can flare up only if I have allowed my very heart and soul to catch the fire of his love.”
