Luke 12, 49-53:
“I have come to set the world on fire, if only it were already burning!”.
Jesus was the first to set the fire of the Gospel burning in the world.
And after him, up to the present day, many of his followers have continued to light this fire and have made it possible that throughout history the fire that brings the Gospel is not extinguished.
Let us think of so many men and women whom we could call “men and women of fire”.
Men and women on fire with the love of God who set the fire of this love of God in everything they did and in everything they lived.
Fire burns, purifies, illuminates, warms, and spreads its flame to everything it touches. The fire does not stop, it tends to expand, to become a blazing bonfire.
Ask the Lord for this grace: like Jesus and like so many men and women in the history of Christianity, may you also be a person of fire.
May you set on fire everything you touch with the fire of the Gospel.
Good day to you.
