Saint Alphonsus Liguouri, Bishop and Doctor of the Church
Gong out from the comfort zones of worldliness, selling our egos and other priorities we need to possess the treasure of faith that would give us everlasting life. St. Alphonsa did this, St. Teresa strived hard to possess this treasure and the saints never ceased to embrace the treasure of the love of Jesus. The question is have we found the treasure and if we have found what are we up to? In a world filled with pearls and treasures we need to set our goal towards that precious pearl, a pearl of greater value, the pearl that is send from heaven, the pearl trampled and nailed on the cross but not crushed above all the pearl that emanates the rays of new life. Let us strive towards that treasure, let us fix our gaze on to that precious pearl, Jesus. let us embrace Him, possess Him and share his love with others so that we become the pointers towards the treasure that is hidden, not yet found.
My heart is restless until they rest in you.
