Thursday, 14th December, John of the Cross, Priest & Doctor, Memorial

Matthew 11:11–15
Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, among those born of women no one has arisen greater than John the Baptist; yet the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John came; and if you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah who is to come. Let anyone with ears listen!”

• How do I seize the Kingdom of God?
. Do I pray in the morning as if I were to die at night?
