Daily Reflections on the Eucharist Day - 103

Education is carried on in the presence of the child and the teacher, by a secret correspondence such as exists between the heart of the mother and that of the child.

A stranger has no influence, but the mother’s voice vibrates in the heart of the child. We shall have in us the life of Our Lord if we live under His inspiration if He rears us Himself. Another may point out to us the way of virtue, but to give us those virtues, to educate us in them — none but Our Lord can do that. Moses and Josue led the Chosen People, but they themselves were conducted by the pillar of fire. In the same way, a spiritual director only repeats to us the words of Our Lord. He consults Him. He seeks Our Lord in us, that is, the grace and the particular attraction that He has imparted to our soul. In order to know us, he studies to know Our Lord in us, and he leads us according to our special grace which He develops and applies to our life under the conduct of the Sovereign Director of souls. He has only to repeat His orders to us. Ah well! Our Lord is in the Blessed Sacrament for all of us, and not alone for the directors of souls. We can all see Him there and consult Him there. Let us look at Him practicing the virtues, and we shall know what we ought to do.
