16.   Dear Jesus,    Without the resurrection all else is foolishness. This was mentioned recently in a homily I heard and it gave me pause for reflection.    We have great devotion to Your passion and death on the cross. The cross has itself become the symbol of our faith. But without the resurrection e...

15.   Dear Jesus,    St. John Climacus talks about the “fight to escape one’s own cleverness.” It’s true that while we may be hypocritical toward others and beguile them with various songs and dances it is, nonetheless, ourselves whom we most fool.     The spiritual life is f...

14.   Dear Jesus,    I am wondering: is there or isn’t there a connection between Your love for me and the role that “luck” (chance) plays in determining my state in life, my condition in life, my role in life?    Is it pure chance that I am an American, a citizen of a most blessed coun...

13.   Dear Jesus,    There have been and will be many varieties of penance we impose upon ourselves as well as penances imposed upon us by others. We do well to remember that the way we handle these is a reflection of the way we love You.  Yet there seems to be an all-pervading, unavoidable, primal penance tha...

12.   Dear Jesus,    Restlessness is the tendency to be unable to stick to one thing for very long before wanting to move on to something else. I discover it daily in my own life. It may, at first, seem like a bad thing, a thing in opposition to the stability vowed in some religious communities. But there is a cert...

11.   Dear Jesus,    I love to read or listen to the lives of the saints despite however much romanticizing has crept in over the years. I do not have delusions about their humanity. They got scraped, nicked, suffered, were embarrassed and insulted and got dirt under their nails just like the rest of us. Perhaps th...

10.   Dear Jesus,    To discover who one is and what it means to be oneself, one must work as if in a monastery on removing certain things from one’s life. To be in a monastery, I would think, would be, in one sense, like being in the desert with You. It would be there that we might best understand the need t...

9.   Dear Jesus,    I want to tell You about a theory I have. Percentage-wise, You know that more than any other topic, I write to You about “self.” There are some knotty problems presented by our perceptions or sense of self. It sticks to us like glue and is the source of all spiritual conflict. It is ...

8.   Dear Jesus,    Recently, at the hunger center, an acquaintance named Charlie asked me, “What do you want out of life?” Charlie is very jovial and a great kidder, but I think he was asking this question seriously. It took me completely off guard and I blurted out, “happiness, of course.”...

7.   Dear Jesus,   So long as I am open and disposed to accepting You in my life; as long as I pursue You, no matter how many times or how hard I fall – You cannot forsake me.  This is yet another consolation, a hug from You in the same vein as St. Therese of Liseux’s: “I know I am far from practi...
