He Calls, Bids and Promises

“He it is Whom we find waiting for us when our turn comes to pass across the short stage of life on earth. He calls us to Him, calls us by our name, one by one. He bids us take Him to our hearts as the nearest and dearest of our friends, Who alone can stand by us when all others fail. He bids us cultivate His friendship, and try it and prove it. And He promises that we shall find Him what all have found Him who have put their trust in Him — what Martha and Mary, and Paul and Bernard, and Teresa and Margaret Mary have found Him — the ‘Faithful and True,’ ‘Jesus Christ yesterday, and today; and the same forever’.”

(From Coram Sanctissimo by Mother Mary Loyola)
