Prayer: Anthony de Mello, S.J.

Recall the presence of the Risen Lord with you...
Tell him you  believe he is present here to you...

Reflect on the fact that he loves and accepts you just as you are now....
Take time out to sense his unconditional love for you as he looks at you lovingly and humbly.

Speak to Christ...or just lovingly stay in silence and communicate with him beyond words.

The devotion to the Heart of Christ, so vigorous some years ago, so much on the decline today, would flourish once again if people would understand that it consists essentially in accepting Jesus Christ as love incarnate, as the manifestation of the unconditional love of God for us. Anyone who accepts this is bound to experience fruits beyond all his expectations in his own prayer life and in his apostolate. The great turning point in your life comes not when you realize that you love God but when you realize and fully accept the fact that God loves you unconditionally.
