His emails are called Nineveh 90 and are preparing us for the 100th anniversary of our Blessed Mother's apparitions in Fatima, Portugal.
Today's email went straight to my heart and exactly describes what it going on inside of me this Lent.
'The "one thing necessary" constitutes the essential foundation for the interior life and consists in hearing the word of God and living by it (I will serve!). It stems from the story of Martha and Mary (Lk 10:38-42), where we first see that, amazingly, the Second Person of the Holy Trinity was sitting right in their living room. Now, Martha remains busy with the good and noble protocol of hospitality while Mary sits at the feet of Jesus, her eyes locked on his holy face, peering into his soul, hanging on his every word. Mary is actually in adoration, soaking in everything our Lord wants to give her. I like to say that she is "Mary-nating" - soaking in the gusher of God's graces. ' (
If you have never been to adoration, I encourage you to find a Church, or adoration chapel soon. Go "waste some time with the Lord." (Fr. John Riccardo) You will find that that "wasted" time was the best part of your day. And you will most likely find that your heart calls you back there again and again. What more could we ask of this Lent, than to grow closer to the heart of the One who loves us best. Go ahead--"Mary-nate". You and Christ will be glad you did.
