What Shall I Answer?

Sacred Heart (6)

“What shall I answer if I have not responded to the love of Jesus – and not given Him the whole love of my heart – and not spent myself for Him Who loved me unto death, even unto the death of the Cross? What shall I answer when  I find out that throughout my life, every hour of the day and night, Jesus was for me imprisoned in the tabernacle, pleading for me with the Father – wishing for me to visit Him, to unite Himself to me, and to be my faithful, my own God?”

(From Meditation on the Passion by A Mistress of Novices of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin  Mary )
