These two words from John 19:28 are a great reminder of the Lord’s thirst for us and our thirst for Him. Let us try to satiate His loving thirst for humanity through our own genuine self-gift and humble service of our brothers and sisters, especially the poorest of the poor.
That is why I have chosen this scriptural passage and spiritual reminder to be the focal point of my priestly ministry. In a way, I hope that what I am sharing will remind you and me of God’s immense and loving thirst for us. I hope what I have prayed and written about will be relatable to you somehow. I hope they invoke and remind you of our thirst for God as we all try to make choices to satiate this divine thirst with our own love for Him and our brothers and sisters.
I hope we can help each other in our commitment to service, strengthened by prayer and made pure with simple joy. I truly believe that our joy is not measured by the quantifiable things we that possess but in the quality of love and commitment we have for one another, with Him, through Him, and in Him. Therefore, let us pray and help one another along the way.
