Meditation Wednesday, march 1, for Regnum Christi | Omnia – Omnia

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Christ, our King. Thy Kingdom come!

Introductory prayer (for me in the presence of God)

My father, I come to your feet like a child in need of mercy. I thirst for your love and that’s why I come here. I know, my Father, that only You can fill my heart, that no one else in this world knows me so well and nothing and no one can love me like You do. Your look is so deep and, at the same time, so full of love that I can only feel a great peace and a great joy. I just want to be here looking at you and leaving me to look at. Without words, in silence, heart to heart.

Gospel of the day (to guide your meditation)

From the holy Gospel according to saint Matthew 6, 1-6.16-18

At that time, Jesus said to his disciples: “beware of practising your piety before men in order to see. Otherwise, you have no reward from your Father in heaven.

Therefore, when you give alms, do not announce it with trumpet, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, for the praise of men. I assure you that you have already received your reward. In contrast, when you give alms, you do not know your left hand what right hand doeth, that thine alms be in secret; and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward you openly.

When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites who love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the squares, to see people. I assure you that you have already received your reward. You, on the other hand, when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret, will reward you.

When you fast, do not look gloomy, like those hypocrites who neglect the appearance of your face, so that people will see that they are fasting. I assure you that you have already received your reward. You, on the other hand, when thou fastest, perfúmate head and wash your face, so you do not know the people that you are fasting, but to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret, will reward you”.

The word of the Lord.

Meditate on what God says in the Gospel.

A way to prepare the heart.

When one goes to a mountain, on a summer day, you are going to enjoy every moment, every experience. You can go alone or I could go with the family or with friends. It is a day that will test every one of the muscles if you really want to get to enjoy the spectacular scenery from the top. We can say that it is an exciting experience. And this is precisely in what consists the christian life. And only those who want to contemplate the wonder of the love of God, is able to test each of their abilities.

Today, we begin a beautiful journey. The journey of lent. And we can say, “I came again…one more year,” and remain indifferent, as a period rather to ride with the face of ash Wednesday, with the “long face”. But lent is, rather, a period to realize that the things of the “world” are not everything, the fashion, the Facebook, the likes, the big dinners…spend. And, what is left?

The life of a christian is a journey to heaven, a way, yes difficult, but worthwhile, because only the love of God, the love of the Father is able to fill us up. One day we will be praising and the next day a few remember, but God looks at us in the depths of the heart, and loves us always, as we are. That is why the lenten season, which we start today, it is a period to prepare the heart to receive the love of God. Like the prodigal son we get on the way to the Father’s house, we leave aside all that prevents us from reaching and, in the end, when you get home, we will receive the great love of God that gives us life.

“May Lent be a time of beneficial, “another pruning” of falsehood, worldliness, indifference: not to think that everything is fine if I am good; to understand that what counts is not approval, the pursuit of success or consensus but the cleansing of the heart and of life; to rediscover the christian identity, that is to say the love that serves, not the selfishness that is served. Let us journey together, as Church, to receive the Ash —also we are to become ash— and having fixed the gaze on the Crucified.”

(Homily of S. S. Francis, 10 February 2016).

Dialogue with Christ

This is the most important part of your prayer, be prepared to talk with a lot of love with the One who loves you.


Make it a personal one. The more love involved in response to the Beloved… or, if you think that is what God asks of you, live what you suggested below.

Today, Lord, I will fast from social networking and I’m going to spend a moment in front of the Eucharist to commit myself to live the lenten season in a special way.


We thank you, Lord, for all your benefits, You who live and reign for ever and ever.


Christ, our King!

Thy Kingdom come!

Virgin prudentísima, Mary, Mother of the Church.

Pray for us.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
