The RCIA challenge of developing intimacy with Jesus—and my billion best friends

2 thoughts on “The RCIA challenge of developing intimacy with Jesus—and my billion best friends”

  1. There are many practices one can do to be on the road to communion and intimacy.

    Prayer
    Listening
    Adoration
    Reading the Word of God.

    Rosary
    Of course Mass, listening to Word
    Liturgy of the Hours
    Receive Sacrament of Reconcilation often, at least once a month – for sure when needed.

  2. One opportunity for developing intimacy with Jesus is putting oneself into the scene in John’s gospel where a couple of the Baptist’s disciples are following Jesus. When Jesus turns and asks what they’re looking for, they ask where he’s staying. He says, “Come and see!” They did, and stayed the afternoon with him. Because the gospel is silent on how they filled the afternoon, something almost begs us to “tell the rest of the story.” If I’m there, what do I ask him, what do I say in response to him, what do I see in his demeanor, what do I discover in the experience?
