"“One of the soldiers pierced his side and there came out blood and water.”" John 19 : 31

The blood that flows from Jesus’ side symbolises his death, which he accepts so as to save humanity; it is and expression of his glory and of his love to the end,    from his pierced side comes love. The water that comes out also represents the Spirit, source of life. The blood and water witness to his love proclaimed and communicated, is poured out into the hearts of believers by the Spirit. The divine plan of love is fulfilled in Jesus in the outpouring of blood and water,   now it is the time for men and women to realise its fulfilment. In this fulfilment, we shall be aided by the Spirit that flows from the pierced side of Jesus, transforming us into a new humanity, capable of loving and of becoming children of God.  

Prayer Lord, I want to love You, but teach me the habit of letting myself be loved by You. May the Lord give us this grace. Amen
