To become one...

I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may
be one as we are one:  I in them and you in me.  May they be
brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me
and have loved them even as you loved me. - John 17:22, 23

"... Jesus hides in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar because He wants us to dare to approach Him. He wants to nourish us so we become one single thing with Him.

When He said, Apart from me you can do nothing, He was not condemning Christians to ineffectiveness or obliging them to seek Him by a difficult and arduous route. On the contrary... He has stayed here with us, He is totally available to us."

St Josemaría Escrivá
Spain ~ 1902-1975
Priest, Founder of Opus Dei
 FEAST DAY - June 26
St Josemaria Escriva describes this experience
about himself as a young seminarian...
"Why am I becoming a priest? Our Lord wants something: what is it?  And in Latin — not very elegant Latin — … I kept repeating Domine, ut videam! Ut sit! Ut sit!  - The thing that you want, and that I don’t know — make it happen!”

St Josemaría Escrivá, pray for us!
