2 Corinthians 5:1 For we know that if our earthly dwelling, a tent, should be destroyed, we have a building from God, a dwelling not made with hands, eternal in heaven.
“My child, esteem nothing that does not lead to Christ. You are earthly vessels, it is true, but you house a spirit that will never die. Decide today how you wish to spend eternity. Whatever ties you to this earth will weigh you down. Your spirit was made to soar. Then detach yourself from all that will perish. Love without clinging; use the things of this world without becoming a slave to them yourself. Child, the time is upon you, and you see the beginnings already. What once felt firm beneath your feet is now becoming unstable. Be sure your feet are firmly planted on the rock—which is Christ—and the Church, against which the gates of hell will never prevail. My child, cultivate a spirit of holy detachment, trusting that all you need will be provided in this life and in the next.”
Jesus I trust in you. Help us to cultivate a spirit of holy detachment so that we may be free to cling to you—with both hands!
“My child, cling to me and you will never be afraid.”
Jesus, my Beloved, this I desire. Holy Angels, assist us! Amen.
