"I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing!" 

May the Lord Jesus, Born of the Father before all ages, breathe the warm breath of his kind Spirit into our hearts and stir into a great flame, the ardor of love he himself has enkindled within us.

"There is a baptism with which I must be baptized,
and how great is my anguish until it is accomplished!"

May the the fiery ardor of Jesus' love for us revealed in his baptism of anguish on the cross open our hearts in compassionate love.
