Life giving water
By Father Lou Cerulli
Adapted and inspired by a letter by Saint Ambrose. Found in the Breviary Vol. I p. 1218-1219
As we strive together in the name of Jesus, to live the Eucharist, we are called to live the teaching of Jesus which calls us to love God and to love one another (MT 22:34-40; JN 13:34)
In living the Eucharist, we move forward in the Holy Name of Jesus and the Power of the Holy Spirit in such an act of love that our words become rivers that give life. We let the life giving waters of the Spirit flow. We invite the healing waters of Jesus to flow through us just as that water flows from the wound in his side. Let your healing waters flow Lord Jesus. Let the river of life, the waters that flow from the Sanctuary, flow through us to the whole world. May our words and actions be rivers that give life.
There is a stream which flows from God. It is a stream of God within us gushing up, bursting forth. (JN 7:37-38). It is a rushing river giving joy to the heart. It rushes from a heart that is at peace and makes for peace. As we receive from this source, we ourselves become a source of life giving water for others. When our hearts are full, they then pour God's rain into other hearts.
