we are fed

Intercessors Of The Lamb

When Mother Teresa of Calcutta was alive she came to the United States and said that out of all the countries in the world, America was the poorest of the poor. We are starving! Maybe it is because we are so busy talking that we are not listening, we are not receiving, we are not being fed in God’s presence. Jesus said, “Blessed are you who hunger and thirst for holiness (for My presence, for a relationship). You shall be satisfied!” One of the first things He did after the Resurrection was to feed His apostles after they had been fishing. They were out there fishing and, as usual, they caught nothing. We will not catch anything either. Jesus calls out to them; they did not recognize Him. He was in His resurrected form here. No one recognized Him. No one except John the contemplative. He knew the voice. He said, “It is the Lord!” Jesus called out, “Children, have you caught anything yet?” He said, “Cast your net on the right side.” That, for us, is the contemplative side, the receiving side. The left side, the left brain, is more the masculine part of us, where we are doing, speaking. The right brain is the receiving side. It is where we receive, where we are fed. Then we can go about the Father’s business in whatever He wants.

Excerpt from Mother Nadine’s, “Lord, Teach Us To Pray,” Springfield, MO, 2006

May we Feed on the Lord and then in turn be able to feed others in whatever way He wants. May this Christmas trully be a Feast!
